Tottenham Hotspur will look to keep pace with the top four when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon. Here is the starting eleven I think Mauricio Pochettino will select:

Goalkeeper: Pochettino confirmed that regular No.1 Hugo Lloris will miss the game after failing to recover from a knee injury so Michel Vorm is set to deputise in goal.

Defence: The Argentinean coach has been playing Eric Dier alongside Jan Vertonghen in the middle of defence in recent weeks but the back four was all over the place at times during their 4-3 win over Leicester so Federico Fazio could be recalled this weekend.  Danny Rose is expected to shake-off a minor injury to start at left-back while Kyle Walker should also keep his place at the back.

Midfield: Ryan Mason should be full of confidence after making his debut for the senior England team last week so he will partner Nabil Bentaleb in midfield. Mousa Dembele is pushing fro a recall but I think the Belgian may have to make do with a place on the bench once again.

Attack: Harry Kane is certain to keep his place up front as he continued his fine form this season by opening his account for his country against Lithuania. Andros Townsend also impressed against Italy on Tuesday night with a well taken goal so he should start ahead of Erik Lamela on the right with Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli occupying the other two places in attack.

Here’s how I think Spurs will line-up for the game:
