Chadli Starts In 4-2-3-1: Predicted Tottenham Starting XI To Face Chelsea

By on May 1, 2016

Tottenham will hope to still be in the title race when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening.  Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is certain to keep his place in goal with Michel Vorm once again among the substitutes.

Defence: Jan Vertonghen has slotted seamlessly back in to the defence after recovering from injury and the Belgian international should once again line-up alongside Toby Alderweireld with Kevin Wimmer on the bench.

Pochettino is expected to stick with his first-choice full-backs meaning Danny Rose and Kyle Walker should retain their places.

Midfield: Eric Dier faces a late fitness test after being forced off with concussion following a clash of heads during the 1-1 draw with West Brom last Monday but the youngster is expected to be passed fit to start alongside Mousa Dembele in midfield.

Attack: Dele Alli will begin his three-match ban after being found guilty of improper conduct following an off-the-ball punch on Claudio Yacob last week so Pochettino is going to have to make at least one change.

Nacer Chadli could get the nod which would see Christian Eriksen move in to the middle while Erik Lamela should complete the attack which will once again support Harry Kane up front.

Here is how I think we’ll see Spurs line-up:

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?

    The team i would pick would be the same only with Rose at left wing forward and Davies left full back Chaldi on the bench , the Chelsea defence would find Rose very hard to contain with his speed and trickery .

    I would go with Son rather than Chadli (Chads on the bench). The Korean’s energy would stretch the defence to allow Kane a few more opportunities. Great pity WBA have become a recent bogey team for us, that draw really put a spanner in the works. Let’s hope we can silence those Leicester-loving louts at Stamford Bridge and keep them mid-table (they were only going to roll over against Leicester in the last match if it came down to the wire anyway). They deserve to be beaten and it would be about time, like it was when we beat Man Utd at WHL the other week. The law of averages and our need to win should see us do Chelsea. COYS!
