Fernando Llorente to lead the line? – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Tottenham XI to face Fulham

Everything seems to be going wrong for Tottenham since last weekend. We started the game against Manchester United as favourites but ended the game more or less out of the title race and our star striker was also ruled out for two months.

Harry Kane’s ankle injury would not have hurt as much if Son Heung-min had stayed but the South Korean joined the national side for the Asian Cup.

Spurs are fortunate to face Fulham on Sunday as we look to get back to winning ways, but Mauricio Pochettino has some decisions to make regarding our starting XI.

Moussa Sissoko is a major doubt for the tie after injuring himself against United, and here is the predicted line-up to face the Cottagers.

Predicted Tottenham XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris had just one major incident in the loss to United, but that was the goal he conceded against the Red Devils. The Frenchman hasn’t always been at his best this season, but he should remain in the side.

Kieran Trippier (RB)

The Englishman’s error led to the goal we conceded against United, and hopefully, he doesn’t make any mistakes against the relegation-threatened team.

Jan Vertonghen (CB)

The Belgian coming back to fitness is a huge boost for us, and he would be looking at helping his side keep a clean sheet at the weekend.

Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

Alderweireld has been the most consistent defender for Tottenham this season, and he should start for us against the Cottagers.

Danny Rose (LB)

The Englishman has been in and out of the team this season but should get the nod ahead of Ben Davies for this tie.

Harry Winks (CM)

Sissoko being out means Winks is an automatic starter for us in the midfield against Fulham.

Oliver Skipp (CM)

Skipp has done a decent job whenever he has played, and he could start alongside Winks in the middle of the pitch.

Erik Lamela (LAM)

Lucas Moura is still a fair bit away from being completely fit, thus we should see the Argentine start on Sunday.

Dele Alli of Tottenham

Dele Alli (CAM)

The Englishman could play a forward’s role alongside our striker on Sunday, and he needs to find the back of the net to forget about his misses against United.

Christian Eriksen (RAM)

Eriksen also needs to have a quality game if we are to make light work of Fulham, and it will be interesting to see his positioning once the game starts.

Fernando Llorente (ST)

With Kane out we should stick with someone who leads the line up-front. Llorente hasn’t been great for us since his move from Swansea, but we need to use his aerial prowess against Fulham.
