Tottenham come into the tie against Manchester United riding high after their 1-0 win over Chelsea in midweek.

The Carabao Cup tie was a tough test for the Lilywhites with Harry Kane scoring the only goal of the game.

Spurs played a strong line-up against the Blues, and we should see a similar team face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United.

The Norwegian has won every game in charge of the Red Devils, but Tottenham should have the edge over their rivals in this tie.

We defeated United at Old Trafford earlier in the season, and have the potential to easily get the three points at the weekend.

Tottenham have some good news on the injury front with Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen pictured in training, and here is our predicted line-up for Spurs for Sunday’s clash.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-1-2-1-2

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris did not play against Chelsea in midweek but the Frenchman should return to the starting XI to face United.

Kieran Trippier (RB)

Trippier played in the win over the Blues and should keep his place in the team given he provides us with more defensive solidity.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

It would be great to see Vertonghen back but this game could be a little early for him to start.

Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The best defender we have had this season, Alderweireld has to play out of his skin to keep United’s attack in check.

Danny Rose (LB)

It is difficult to choose between Rose and Ben Davies, but the Englishman provides more in attack and should keep his place in the team.

Harry Winks (DM)

There aren’t many options for us in midfield, and Winks should start in his deeper role for Spurs.

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

Sissoko has been excellent in his midfield role this season, and his driving runs can cause havoc for United’s defence.

Christian Eriksen Tottenham

Eriksen has been another star for Spurs in recent weeks, and he should be one of the keys to beating United.

Dele Alli (CAM)

The Englishman hasn’t had the best season in terms of goals this season, but he is a big game player and should start on Sunday.

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane keeps banging in the important goals, and it would come as no surprise if he does the same against United too.

The South Korean could be off to the Asian Cup after this game, and he could be a real problem for United’s defence on Sunday.
