Pochettino To Make 3 Changes: Team News & Predicted Tottenham Starting XI vs Hull

By on May 19, 2017

Tottenham will look to end the season on a positive note when they take on Hull City at the KCOM Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

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

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is a major doubt for the game after picking up a knee injury during the 6-1 thrashing of Leicester City last night so Michel Vorm is on stand-by to deputise between the sticks.

Defence: Kyle Walker will be assessed at training on Saturday as he looks to get himself available again after missing the trip to the King Power in midweek with an ankle injury.

Kieran Trippier is available again after sitting out the Leicester game due to concussion so he could come in at right-back while Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld should keep their places in defence.

Midfield:  With Trippier returning at right-back, Eric Dier will be free to move back in to midfield with Mousa Dembele’s niggling foot injury unlikely to be risked again after he started last night.

Victor Wanyama is almost certain to keep his place in midfield but Moussa Sissoko is expected to make way after struggling to make an impact against the Foxes.

Attack: All eyes will be on Harry Kane as he looks to secure the Golden Boot after moving two clear of Romelu Lukaku with a sensational four-goal haul against Leicester.

Hueng-min Son should keep his place in attack after scoring two fine efforts last time out while Christian Eriksen should get a recall to join Dele Alli in supporting Son and Kane in the final third.

Erik Lamela, Danny Rose and Harry Winks will all miss the final game of the season as Tottenham look to end what’s been an another encouraging campaign on a high note.

Here is how I think Spurs will line-up:
