Son Heung-min to face the Gunners? – Predicted Tottenham line-up against Arsenal



Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min of Tottenham

Tottenham picked up an important 1-0 win over Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday, and face another tough test by travelling to the Emirates for a North London derby.

The Gunners won their Europa League clash a day later, and it would be two in-form teams battling for London pride on Sunday.

Spurs welcomed Jan Vertonghen back to their starting XI in the win over the Italians, and Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t have new injury concerns for the side.

Mousa Dembele is still out with Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier could be close to fitness. Tottenham need to keep the wins coming as they look to close the gap on Manchester City, and here is our predicted line-up for Spurs.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris needs to have a stellar game in between the sticks as the Gunners have a great attack under Unai Emery.

Huro Lloris and Serge Aurier of Tottenham

Serge Aurier (RB)

The Ivorian was great in our win over Chelsea and also Inter, and need another quality outing for us.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The Belgian has been excellent for Tottenham during Jan Vertonghen’s absence, and our defence should get better with the other Belgian back in the side.

Jan Vertonghen (CB)

Vertonghen needs to be at his best against the Gunners, and hopefully, we keep another clean sheet on Sunday.

Ben Davies (LB)

Rose returned to training recently but we think this game might come a little early for the Englishman to get a start.

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

Sissoko has really stepped up for Tottenham this season, and the French midfielder will be important in our hopes of defeating Arsenal.

Eric Dier (CM)

Dier is another player that needs to have a quality outing, and hopefully, he keeps the Arsenal midfield in check.

Christian Eriksen (LAM)

Eriksen scored the winner against Inter on Wednesday and should start for Tottenham on Sunday.

Dele Alli (CAM)

The Englishman was excellent in our win over Chelsea, and another London derby would be the perfect setting for an Alli goal.

Son Heung-min (RAM)

Son had a magnificent goal against Chelsea a week ago, and we could do with a similar performance from the South Korean against the Gunners.

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane didn’t score in our win over Inter but Tottenham need their talisman to be firing on all cylinders against the Gunners.
