Eriksen starts as Mourinho makes 4 changes | Expected Tottenham line-up vs Burnley

Tottenham will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Burnley at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side we think Jose Mourinho will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris remains on the sidelines with a dislocated elbow so Paulo Gazzaniga will continue between the sticks this weekend.
Defence: Mourinho will have been disappointed with some of the defending during Wednesday night’s defeat to Man Utd and I think he might freshen things up at the back. Ben Davies remains out with an ankle ligament injury but Danny Rose is pushing for a recall at left-back.
That would allow Jan Vertonghen to move into the middle of the back four after a couple of games at left-back. Davinson Sanchez is the man most likely to make way with Toby Alderweireld keeping his place. Serge Aurier appears to have cemented himself as a regular in the Spurs side so I expect he’ll continue at right-back on Saturday.
Midfield: Tottenham could mix things up in midfield with Eric Dier pushing for a recall after being named on the bench at Old Trafford so Harry Winks may drop out against Burnley.
Summer signing Tanguy Ndombele will also be hoping to feature after being named as a sub at United so Moussa Sissoko may drop out after a disappointing performance on Wednesday night.
Attack: Lucas Moura wasn’t really in the game too much against Manchester United so I wouldn’t be surprised to see the South American attacker left out against Burnley this weekend.
Erik Lamela remains on the sidelines with a thigh injury so Christian Eriksen could be set for a recall. With Dele Alli enjoying an excellent run of form in the central attacking role, Eriksen could be deployed from out wide if he does start against Burnley.
Hueng-min Son is expected to retain his place in the Tottenham attack as he’s become a firm favourite under Mourinho so Giovani Lo Celso will probably have to settle for a place among the subs yet again.
Obviously Harry Kane will lead the line up front for Tottenham and he’ll be looking to get back among the goals after not scoring in each of his last two Premier League games.
