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

Christian Eriksen (CM)

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.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham interested in Leeds United’s winger Jack Clarke

The Sun (h/t Daily Star) reports that Tottenham are interested in signing Leeds United’s Jack Clarke in a deal worth £10m.

The English youngster broke into Marcelo Bielsa’s side last season and played 25 times for them in all competitions.

The 18-year-old winger scored two goals and provided two assists for Leeds but the side missed out on Premier League promotion after their elimination from the playoffs.

The report claims that Leeds’ inability to return to the top-flight will harm their chances of keeping hold of Clarke.

The English winger is contracted with the Championship side until 2021, however, the report claims that talks over a new deal hit a roadblock.

The report adds that Tottenham will be able to provide Clarke with higher wages but there is interest from other parties.

Tottenham’s rivals are keeping an eye on Clarke

Tottenham’s London rivals Arsenal are also interested in the starlet while Newcastle United are also keeping tabs on the 18-year-old, according to the report.

Clarke could turn out to be a smart signing under Mauricio Pochettino given his great record of dealing with young talent.

The Argentine also has a great relationship with Bielsa and played under the Leeds manager during their time in the national side.

The English winger is still a little rough around the edges but Pochettino could make a star out of the youngster at Spurs.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham speak to Barcelona about Malcom

Spanish publication Sport (h/t Express) claims that Tottenham have asked Barcelona about Malcom while talking up a deal for Andre Gomes.

Gomes spent the recently ended season with Everton and did a great job in the second half of the campaign under Marco Silva.

Andre Gomes

The Express reports that Tottenham want to sign the Portuguese midfielder and could sell Victor Wanyama in the summer.

Mousa Dembele was sold in the winter window while Gomes would provide some competition and cover for Moussa Sissoko too. The French midfielder has thrived this season and has helped us reach the Champions League final.

Malcom has struggled for games at Barcelona, but the club will not let him leave on the cheap.

Barca still want a major amount for Malcom

The Brazilian was great for Bordeaux a couple of seasons ago but has struggled to get goals at Barcelona.

The report adds that the Catalans have slapped a £35m tag on the 22-year-old. Malcom has only scored 5 goals all season and is willing to listen to offers to move away from the La Liga side (h/t Express).

Malcom is also being linked with other clubs in England, Italy and Germany but the report claims that Tottenham are in the best position to land the Brazilian.

The Brazilian could be a bit of a risky signing given that he struggled at the Catalan side, however, it is difficult to break into a team that features Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Ousmane Dembele.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham interested in 19-year-old Rekeem Harper

The Daily Star reports that Tottenham are interested in West Bromwich Albion’s young midfielder Rekeem Harper.

The 19-year-old played 23 times for the Baggies last season as they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

The youngster scored once this season and notched up an assist for the Baggies. The central midfielder has also caught the eye of newly promoted side Norwich City, according to the report.

However, Scottish giants Celtic seem to be doing a lot to get the youngster across the border.

Hoops invite star to watch them in action

Celtic won another Premiership title this season despite losing Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City in the middle of the campaign.

The report claims that the Hoops are interested in Harper and he was was in the stands to watch Celtic defeat Hearts at the weekend.

Tottenham could do with more steel in the midfield, however, Harper can improve further under the right manager.

It is to be seen if the player is ready for a move to the Premier League and Spurs did not make a single signing over two transfer windows.

That still didn’t stop us from reaching the Champions League final and finishing in the top four.

Spurs transfer news: Mauricio Pochettino eyes Eric Bailly as Toby Alderweireld replacement

The Daily Star reports that Tottenham are interested in Manchester United defender Eric Bailly and will battle Arsenal for the Ivorian’s services.

The report adds that the 25-year-old centre-back has been told that he can leave Old Trafford after a difficult campaign.

Eric Bailly

Bailly only played 12 Premier League games this season and has had his injury problems. The defender also had problems with Jose Mourinho, and the Red Devils replaced the Portuguese manager with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer midway through the season.

One defender to replace another at Spurs?

The Daily Star adds that Mauricio Pochettino sees Bailly as the “ideal” replacement for Belgian star Toby Alderweireld.

The former Ajax defender has a £25m release clause in his contract, and the report adds that Alderweireld is expected to leave in the summer. Manchester United are interested in the Belgian centre-back and could use Bailly in a deal, according to the report.

Alderweireld is still one of the best defenders in the world and replacing him with Bailly might not be seen as an upgrade.

The Ivorian wasn’t in great form this season but most of the United players have been poor under Mourinho and Solskjaer.
