Tottenham will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Southampton at St Mary’s on Saturday afternoon. 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 with Michel Vorm once again among the subs.

Defence: Pochettino is expected to stick with the same back four that started last Sunday despite the disappointing 2-1 loss to Newcastle. That means Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen should all keep their places.

Midfield: Mousa Dembele could be back in contention after overcoming illness so the Belgian international should replace Tom Carroll in midfield alongside Eric Dier. Ryan Mason could be back in the squad but Alex Pritchard remains sidelined.

Attack: Deli Alli should continue in the free role with Christian Eriksen expected to play from the left-wing but Heung-min Son could come in for Erik Lamela on the right. Harry Kane is almost certain to once again lead the line up front.

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

What do you think….what eleven would you put out for the game?

    The return of Dembele will make such a difference from the Newcastle game, he will ad steel and determination to the midfield, he can hold up the ball and bring the game to Southampton. I think Spurs will win 2-1, but they must fight for the win.
