Tottenham Hotspur will look to bounce back from last weekend’s defeat to Chelsea when they take on Burnley at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

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

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is certain to continue between the sticks on Sunday unless he picks up a late injury.

Defence: Pochettino went with a back three during last weekend’s loss to Chelsea but he may revert to a flat back four against Burnley to free-up an extra man in attack.

Eric Dier is the man most likely to make way as Jan Vertonghen is expected to keep his place alongside Toby Alderweireld in the middle of defence.

Kieran Trippier is set to overcome a minor knock to keep his place at right-back while Ben Davies will continue on the left with Danny Rose still weeks away from making his return from a knee injury.

Midfield: Victor Wanyama made a successful return from injury last weekend so he should keep his place while Mousa Dembele should also once again start in the middle of the park.

Attack: If Pochettino does revert to a 4-2-3-1 formation then Heung-min Son should be the man to get a recall in attack as the South Korean has made a decent impact from the bench recently.

Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli are almost certain to keep their places in the starting eleven so Moussa Sissoko will have to make do with a place on the bench.

Harry Kane will start up front and the England international will look to take advantage of his final opportunity to break his August goal-scoring hoodoo this season.

Erik Lamela is still unavailable as the Argentinean international continues to work his way back to full fitness following a hip injury that’s kept him out for 10 months.

Here is how I think Spurs will line-up:
