4-2-3-1: Pochettino To Make 5 Changes | Expected Tottenham XI vs Man Utd

By on April 19, 2018

Tottenham will be looking to book their place in the final of the FA Cup when they take on Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday evening.

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

Goalkeeper: Michel Vorm has been selected in the previous rounds of the FA Cup but with the final now within reach I’d be surprised if Hugo Lloris doesn’t start against United this weekend.

Defence: Toby Alderweireld was recalled to make his first Premier League start of 2018 during the 1-1 draw at Brighton on Tuesday night having recovered from a long-term hamstring injury. However, Pochettino is likely to recall Davinson Sanchez with the Colombian international lining-up alongside Jan Vertonghen in the middle of defence.

Kieran Trippier should also come back in to replace Serge Aurier at right-back while Ben Davies will continue at left-back with Danny Rose ruled out with a calf injury.

Midfield: Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier are expected to be recalled after the pair were rested against Brighton in midweek. Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko will therefore drop to the bench against the Reds.

Attack: Harry Kane was on target at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday night and no doubt the England hitman will once again lead the line up front against United on Saturday.

Christian Eriksen should keep his place in attack while Heung-min Son will be hoping to get the nod over Erik Lamela after enjoying an excellent campaign.

However, the one change we should certainly see is Dele Alli being recalled to start in attack with Lucas Moura dropping out following his start in midweek.

Here is how I expect Spurs to line-up:

    If the team is picked on form then Kane should not start. He will do, but he’s been awful recently. Probably a consequence of rushing back from injury.

    Personally I’d like to see:

    Lloris

    Toby Sanchez Jan
    Trippier Dier Dembele Davies
    Alli Son Eriksen

    Kane maybe come on in 2nd half if needed and we can revert to a back 4 again
