Tottenham will look to cement their place in the top four when they take on Norwich City at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon. Here is team news and 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 will have to mix things up over the next few matches as they’ll play four games in under two weeks but I think we’ll see the majority of the usual back-four start on Saturday before some of the fringe players are given a chance at Watford on Monday.

Danny Rose could return to the starting eleven after missing the win at Southampton but otherwise I expect we’ll see Kyle Walker, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen all start.

Midfield: Pochettino has confirmed that Ryan Mason is back in contention after recovering from an ankle injury but I think a place on the bench is the best he can hope for as Mousa Dembele is expected to shake-off a knock to start alongside Eric Dier in midfield.

Attack: Deli Alli should continue in the free role with Christian Eriksen expected to play from the left-wing. Nacer Chadli is pushing for a recall but I think Erik Lamela will keep his place and support Harry Kane in attack.

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

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