Pochettino Makes 2 Changes In 4-1-4-1: Predicted Tottenham XI To Face Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to get back to winning ways when they make the sort trip across north London to take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Number one goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will continue between the sticks this weekend.
Defence: Pochettino confirmed at his press conference earlier today that Toby Alderweireld has been ruled out of the game after failing to recover from a knee injury that’s kept him out for nearly a month.
Eric Dier is therefore expected to continue alongside Jan Vertonghen at the back while Kyle Walker will continue at right-back. Ben Davies has been ruled out with an ankle injury so Danny Rose will come in at left-back.
Midfield: Mousa Dembele is a doubt after limping off during Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in midweek but Pochettino will no doubt give the Belgian international every chance to prove his fitness.
Victor Wanyama should continue in the holding role while Dele Alli is also expected to keep his place with Moussa Sissoko ruled out as he serves the final of his three-game domestic ban.
Attack: Spurs have been handed a huge injury boost with the news that Harry Kane has been passed fit and is available for selection so I expect the England international to come straight back in to the side up front with Vincent Janssen dropping out.
Erik Lamela has been ruled out with a hip injury that kept him out of the Leverkusen game so Hueng-min Son could start on the wing with Christian Eriksen keeping his place on the left side of attack.
Here is how I think we’ll see Spurs line-up:
