Tottenham will look to book their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup when they take on Colchester United on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is expected to get a rest with Michel Vorm being handed the gloves in goal.

Defence: Jan Vertonghen has been ruled out for the foreseeable future after suffering a knee injury during last weeks win at Crystal Palace so Kevin Wimmer should start alongside Toby Alderweireld at the back.

Kyle Walker could return at right-back while Ben Davies should get a start at left-back with Danny Rose given a breather.

Midfield: Pochettino is expected to make changes to his midfield with first team regulars Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele likely to be rested. Nabil Bentaleb and Tom Carroll could therefore come in to the team with Ryan Mason still struggling for fitness.

Attack: There is also likely to be changes in attack with Harry Kane almost certainly given the afternoon off while Christian Eriksen could also be given a breather. This could see Heung-min Son start up front while Nacer Chadli and Erik Lamela could come in to the starting eleven alongside in-form youngster Dele Alli.

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

      I agree. Also remains to be seen which full-backs will start.
      I would also like for Poch to put Carter-Vickers on bench, so he might get some time on the pitch, if the game will be in our favour.
