Pochettino To Make 2 Key Changes: Predicted Tottenham Starting XI vs West Ham

By on May 4, 2017

Tottenham will be looking to keep the pressure on Chelsea when they take on West Ham at the London Stadium on Friday night.

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

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is set to keep goal once again for this important game with number two goalkeeper Michel Vorm expected to keep his place on the bench after returning to the squad last week following a knee injury.

Defence: Pochettino may revert to a back three after playing with a back four during the win over Arsenal last weekend with Eric Dier dropping back in to the defence alongside Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

Midfield: The Spurs boss has confirmed Kyle Walker is in contention despite speculation surrounding his future at the club and the England international could be recalled on the right with Kieran Trippier dropping out.

Danny Rose is expected to resume full training next week so he’s still not ready to make his long-awaited comeback meaning Ben Davies will continue on the left.

Mousa Dembele wasn’t risked from the start against Arsenal due to a minor ankle problem but the Belgian international is expected to get a recall alongside Victor Wanyama in midfield tomorrow.

Attack: With the switch in formation it means Spurs need to lose an attacker and Heung-min Son is the man most likely to make way as Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are certain to keep their places in the side.

Harry Kane will once again lead the line up front and he’ll be looking to build on his goal during the North London Derby win when he takes on the Hammers tomorrow night.

Here is how I think Spurs will line-up:
