Tottenham will be looking to keep the pressure on Chelsea when they take on Arsenal at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Michel Vorm is expected to return to the squad after making a swift recovery from a knee injury but a place on the bench is the best the Dutchman can hope for as Hugo Lloris is almost certain to retain his place between the sticks.
Defence: Pochettino has been playing his preferred back three in recent weeks and I don’t think the Argentinean coach will look to change a winning formula this weekend.
That means Eric Dier is likely to continue at the back alongside Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld with Kevin Wimmer once again supporting from the bench.
Midfield: Mousa Dembele is a doubt for the game after being forced off at half-time during the 1-0 win at Crystal Palace on Wednesday night with an ankle injury. Pochettino says the Belgian international will be assessed tomorrow but he’s a key player so I’m sure he’ll be given every chance to prove his fitness.
The injury isn’t thought to be too serious so I think we’ll see Dembele once again lining-up alongside Victor Wanyama in midfield with Kyle Walker occupying the right wing-back spot.
Danny Rose is taking part in some aspects of full training after recovering from a serious knee injury but isn’t ready to return so Ben Davies will continue on the left.
Attack: Christian Eriksen proved to be the match-winner in midweek as he scored a superb goal to secure the three points at Selhurst Park and the Danish international is certain to start in attack once again on Sunday.
Dele Alli has enjoyed a sensational campaign so there’s no way he can be left out meaning the England youngster will support Harry Kane with Hueng-min Son having to make do with a place on the bench.
Here is how I think Spurs will line-up:
