Tottenham will be looking to tighten their grip on third place with a win over West Ham at the New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this lunchtime.
Mauricio Pochettino has still named a very strong side despite Tottenham facing a huge Champions League semi-final with Ajax next week. Hugo Lloris starts in goal while Toby Alderweireld marshalls the defence along with Ben Davies. Jan Vertonghen isn’t risked due to a minor knock so Davinson Sanchez comes in while Juan Foyth starts at right-back with Keiran Trippier rested.
Eric Dier lines-up in midfield with Victor Wanyama given a breather ahead of the Ajax game but Tottenham’s big-guns all start with Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Lucas Moura supporting Hueng-min Son in attack.
Harry Kane is obviously still out injured but Fernando Llorente still has to make-do with a place on the bench where he’s joined by forgotten striker Vincent Janssen.
As for West Ham, Aaron Cresswell and Manuel Lanzini fail late fitness tests while former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is named on the bench.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Lloris, Foyth, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies, Rose, Dier, Eriksen, Alli, Lucas, Son
Subs: Gazzaniga, Trippier, Walker-Peters, Wanyama, Skipp, Janssen, Llorente
Fabianski; Fredericks, Diop, Balbuena, Masuaku, Rice, Noble, Snodgrass, Anderson, Antonio, Arnautovic
Subs: Adrian, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Obiang, Wilshere, Chicharito, Lucas Perez
