Key man returns as Poch makes 5 changes | Expected Tottenham line-up vs Belgrade
Tottenham take on Partizan Belgrade in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:
Tottenham head to Serbia to take on Partizan Belgrade in the group stages of the Champions League on Wednesday night. Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris remains on the sidelines as he continues his rehabilitation from a dislocated elbow so Paulo Gazzaniga will once again start between the sticks.
Defence: Jan Vertonghen missed Sunday’s draw with Everton due to a thigh injury and the Belgian international won’t be involved tomorrow night so Davinson Sanchez is expected to continue alongside Toby Alderweireld in the middle of the Tottenham back four.
Danny Rose missed the Everton game due to suspension so he could return at left-back with Ben Davies making way while Juan Foyth could come in to start at right-back in place of Serge Aurier.
Midfield: Harry Winks was named on the bench at the weekend so he could be in-line for a recall in the middle of the park tomorrow night with the England international playing at the base of a midfield three.
Moussa Sissoko has cemented himself as a regular in the Tottenham starting eleven so he could keep his place against Partizan Belgrade but Tanguy Ndombele may be given a rest by Pochettino.
Christian Eriksen had a game to forget against Everton as his poor form continued so I think we’ll see him dropping to the bench and that may see Giovani Lo Celso handed a start in the Tottenham midfield.
Attack: Heung-min Son has travelled to Serbia but the South Korean international might not be selected to start after being left distraught following his sending off for a tackle that led to Everton’s Andre Gomes suffering a broken ankle on Sunday.
Dele Alli was on the scoresheet at Goodison Park so he could keep his place in the Tottenham attack with Lucas Moura also starting as Erik Lamela remains on the sidelines through injury.
Tottenham have been handed a major boost as Harry Kane is back in contention after missing the Everton game due to illness so I expect the England hitman to lead the line up front tomorrow night.
Ryan Sessegnon made a late cameo appearance against the Toffees so he’ll be hoping to get more minutes under his belt on Wednesday but I think it’s too soon for him to be handed a start.
Here is how I expect Tottenham to line-up:
