Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to close in on the top four in the Premier League table when they take on Swansea at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris has consistently proved he’s one of the best goalkeepers in the world so he’s certain to keep his place in the Spurs goal this weekend.

Defence: Pochettino has confirmed that while Toby Alderweireld has come through another week of training the Belgian international still isn’t feeling 100% fit so it remains to be seen whether the Spurs boss will risk him this weekend.

Given the opposition, I think we’ll see Pochettino give Alderweireld another week to fully recover so Eric Dier should continue at centre-back on Saturday while Kyle Walker will once again be on the right.

Jan Vertonghen filled-in at left-back last time out but he should move back in to the middle of defence as Danny Rose is available after serving a one-game suspension.

Midfield: Tottenham were unfortunate to lose at Stamford Bridge last weekend as they were impressive for long spells so I wouldn’t be surprised if Pochettino sticks with the same midfield and attack on Saturday.

That means Victor Wanyama will once again be in the holding role while Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli are expected to retain their places in the middle of the park.

Attack: Christian Eriksen got back on form with a superb goal against Chelsea so the Danish international should keep his place in attack but Erik Lamela remains out with an on-going hip injury so Heung-min Son should once again start on the right.

Harry Kane signed a new long-term contract with Tottenham today so he’ll be hoping to celebrate with another goal this weekend having scored four in four games following his return to fitness.

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