Pochettino To Make 4 Changes: Predicted Tottenham Line-Up vs Chelsea

By on January 3, 2017

Tottenham will be looking to give their title challenge a major boost when they take on leaders Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.

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

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is certain to keep his place between the sticks as he’s probably one of the first names on the team sheet.

Defence: Spurs welcome back Jan Vertonghen after the Belgian international served a one-game suspension last time out and he’s expected to come straight back in to the side with Kevin Wimmer dropping out.

Kyle Walker is also available again after missing the win at Watford through suspension and he’s set to replace Kieran Trippier at right-back despite his impressive performance at Vicarage Road on Sunday.

Toby Alderweireld made a successful comeback against Watford so he should keep his place at the back along with the ever-impressive Danny Rose.

Midfield: Mousa Dembele is expected to be given a recall in midfield after being rested for the game at the weekend meaning Eric Dier may find himself back on the bench as Victor Wanyama is almost certain to keep his place.

Attack: Dele Alli continued his excellent form in front of goal with another brace against Watford so the youngster will keep his place in attack along with Christian Eriksen.

Harry Kane is also a definite starter after taking his season tally to 12 in all competitions last time out but we may see Moussa Sissoko come back in to the side to offer more defensive cover against a dangerous Chelsea side with Hueng-min Son dropping out.

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