Tottenham will look to wrap-up second place in the Premier League table when they entertain Southampton at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is certain to keep his place in goal with Michel Vorm once again among the substitutes.

Defence: Pochettino has played a settled back four ever since Jan Vertonghen made his return from a knee injury last month and I don’t expect that to change despite the North Londoners conceding twice against Chelsea on Monday night.

Therefore, the Belgian international should continue at the back alongside Toby Alderweireld while first choice full-backs Danny Rose and Kyle Walker should also retain their places.

Midfield: Mousa Dembele has been slapped with a six-game suspension by the FA after being found guilty of gauging the eye of Diego Costa during Monday’s feisty 2-2 draw so Pochettino has a void to fill in midfield. With Nabil Bentaleb still out injured, Ryan Mason is set for a recall alongside in the middle of the park.

Attack: Dele Alli remains out through suspension and I think Pochettino may decide to bring Nacer Chadli in for Heung-min Son against the Saints this weekend. Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela are expected to keep their places and will continue to support Harry Kane in attack.

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