Pochettino Makes 3 Changes in 4-1-4-1: Predicted Tottenham XI To Face Leverkusen

By on October 17, 2016

Tottenham will be looking to take a huge step towards qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League when they take on Bayer Leverkusen in Germany on Tuesday night.

Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is almost certain to continue between the sticks tomorrow night.

Defence: Spurs will be without influential centre-back Toby Alderweireld after he was stretchered off during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with West Brom with a knee injury. Pochettino is hopeful the injury isn’t too serious but the club are waiting on scan results before they’ll know the full extent of the problem.

Eric Dier could be given the nod to start alongside Jan Vertonghen as he’s seemingly lost his place in midfield while Danny Rose is expected to get a recall after being rested at the weekend. Kyle Walker should continue at right-back.

Midfield: Victor Wanyama should keep his place in the holding role in Pochettino’s new 4-1-4-1 formation with Dele Alli starting in front of the Kenyan international.  Moussa Sissoko is likely to also keep his place in the starting eleven as Mousa Dembele isn’t fit enough to start just yet.

Attack: Harry Kane remains out with an ankle injury but Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela are likely to continue on the wings. Hueng-min Son is expected to come in up front after being rested against West Brom meaning Vincent Janssen will drop to the bench.

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