Tottenham make the short trip across North London to take on rivals Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday evening, here’s the team we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game.
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris will come back in to the starting eleven after being rested for Wednesday nights League Cup win so Michel Vorm will drop back to the bench.
Defence: Pochettino is expected to recall a number of first team regulars after making wholesale changes last night so the likes of Younes Kaboul, Eric Dier and Danny Rose should come back in. Jan Vertonghen has fallen out-of-favour recently so Vlad Chiriches is favourite to start at the back.
Midfield: Etienne Capoue and Mousa Dembele are expected to be recalled after being given well-earned rests in midweek so Benjamin Stambouli and Nabil Bentaleb should drop out.
Attack: Spurs lacked creativity during last weeks 1-0 defeat to West Brom so there’s a strong case that Pochettino should change things up in attack. However, he’s stuck with Nacer Chadli, Christian Eriksen and Eric Lamela as his attacking three behind Emmanuel Adebayor all season in the league, so we think he’ll do likewise this weekend.
So here’s how Pochettino could line-up his side this weekend:
