Walker-Peters to retain starting spot? – Predicted Tottenham line-up against Burnley



Tottenham players celebrate draw against Barcelona

Tottenham come into this home game against Burnley with a spring in their step after qualifying for the knockout rounds of the Champions League.

The Lilywhites drew against Barcelona to make it into the next round, and a struggling Burnley should be easy fodder for us.

The Clarets aren’t doing all that well, and we can cut the gap to the top of the table to three points with a win at Wembley.

Spurs have several players going through rehabilitation at the moment, and Mauricio Pochettino also has to think about the Carabao Cup clash against Arsenal in midweek.

Tottenham have to win to keep pushing for a top-four place and more, and here is our predicted line-up for Saturday’s clash.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris should keep his place in the team after the excursion against Barcelona.

Kyle Walker-Peters (RB)

Serge Aurier and Kieran Trippier are still recovering from their knocks, so we should see Walker-Peters remain in the team.

Son Heung min Jan Vertonghen Tottenham

Jan Vertonghen (CB)

Vertonghen should remain in the team ahead of this clash at Wembley as the likes of Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth are recovering from injury.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

Alderweireld could do with a break but we need to keep playing him and then think about the midweek clash.

Ben Davies (LB)

Danny Rose was one of our best players against the Catalans but he should be given a break on Saturday with Davies coming in.

Eric Dier (CM)

Dier didn’t play against the Catalan side, and he should be fresh to start on Saturday.

Moussa Sissoko Tottenham

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

Sissoko has been great in recent weeks and should remain in the side to take on the Clarets.

Lucas Moura (LAM)

The Brazilian scored the all-important goal against Barcelona that drew us level and should start.

Dele Alli (CAM)

Alli also started against Barcelona on Saturday, and he would be an important player for us against the Clarets.

Erik Lamela of Tottenham

Erik Lamela (RAM)

Lamela didn’t start against Barcelona, and we could see the Argentine back in the XI against Burnley.

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane could also do with some time off but he was rested in the game against Leicester and should start for us on Saturday.
