Tottenham will look to maintain their recent form when they take on newly-promoted Huddersfield Town on Saturday lunchtime.

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

Goalkeeper: Number one goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is expected to once again start between the sticks with Michel Vorm on the bench.

Defence: Pochettino will welcome back Jan Vertonghen after he served a one-game suspension in the Champions League on Tuesday night so the Belgian international should make an immediate return at the back.

Toby Alderweireld is certain to keep his place in the back three while Davinson Sanchez should continue in defence after making an impressive start to life in north London.

Midfield: Serge Aurier will miss the game due to suspension following his sending off during the win at West Ham last weekend. Keiran Trippier will therefore start in the right wing-back position.

Ben Davies should retain his place on the left with Danny Rose still injured while Eric Dier is certain to start in the holding midfield role once again with Victor Wanyama still out with a knee injury.

Mousa Dembele is expected to miss out due to injury so Moussa Sissoko could start in midfield – although Harry Winks is an option for Pochettino after impressing in midweek.

Attack: Spurs will be able to call upon Dele Alli once again after he served a European suspension during the win at APOEL while Christian Eriksen should overcome illness to return in attack.

Heung-min Son is expected to drop out while Harry Kane will be looking to continue his sensational form having scored a hat-trick last time out.

Here is how I think Spurs will line-up:
