Pochettino Makes 3 Changes: Predicted Tottenham Starting XI To Face Hull

Tottenham Hotspur get back to Premier League action when they take on Hull City at the KC Stadium on Sunday afternoon. This is the line-up we think Mauricio Pochettino will select:
Goalkeeper: No doubt Hugo Lloris will start this game in goal unless he picks up a late injury.
Defence: Kyle Walker is back in training but after over six months on the sidelines with a pelvic injury, he’s not going to be in contention for another few weeks. Kyle Naughton starts a two match ban following his sending off against Stoke so Eric Dier will start at right-back. Pochettino has hinted that Jan Vertonghen will continue on the bench with Federico Fazio preferred alongside Younes Kaboul. Danny Rose is expected to pass a late fitness test to start at left-back.
Midfield: Ryan Mason appears to have played his way into Pochettino’s starting eleven so he’s favourite ahead of Moussa Dembele, Benjamin Stambouli and Paulinho to start alongside Etienne Capoue in midfield.
Attack: Erik Lamela is set for a recall having been left out against Stoke as Andros Townsend is a major doubt for the game. Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli should keep their places in attack but Harry Kane may find himself back among the subs after failing to take his chance with a rare start in the league last time out. Emmanuel Adebayor could therefore come back in to the side.
So this is the line-up I think we’ll see Pochettino go with against Hull:
