Tottenham will look to book their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup when they take on Barnsley at Wembley on Tuesday night.

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

Goalkeeper: Number one goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is set for a breather so Michel Vorm should be given a rare run-out between the sticks.

Defence: Pochettino has confirmed he’ll make some changes to his team as he looks to give some key men a rest so we should see the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Kieran Trippier and Davinson Sanchez drop out.

Serge Aurier should be given another start at right-back with Juan Foyth handed his debut in the middle of defence while Jan Vertonghen may add a bit of experience to the side.

Ben Davies is carrying a knock so he’s unlikely to be risked and with Danny Rose still out with an on-going knee injury we could see youngster Kyle Walker-Peters deployed at left-back.

Midfield: Pochettino has confirmed that Harry Winks will start his first game of the season after recently recovering from injury while youngster Tashan Oakley-Boothe is also expected to be involved.

Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele are set to be rested while Victor Wanyama is still nursing a knee injury.

Attack: Dele Alli could keep his place as he’s still serving a three-match Champions League suspension so will have time to rest over the coming weeks.

Hueng-min Son may also retain his place in attack while Moussa Sissoko is expected to be played on the right-side with Christian Eriksen given a well-earned rest.

Fernando Llorente will be given his full debut following his deadline day move from Swansea City meaning Harry Kane gets a breather. Youngster Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is expected to be in the squad but Erik Lamela remains unavailable for selection.

Here is how I think Spurs will line-up:
