Tottenham will be hoping to continue their recent good form when they take on Man Utd at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon. This is the side I think Mauricio Pochettino will select:

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League so no doubt he will start in goal for Spurs unless he picks up a late injury before kick off.


Defence: Pochettino may decide to give Danny Rose a breather as the full-back has only recently returned from a lengthy injury absence and may not be fit enough to play twice in three days, so Ben Davies could come in at left-back. Kyle Walker is another who may get a rest with Kyle Naughton and Eric Dier pushing for recalls, but I think we’ll see Walker keep his place alongside Jan Vertonghen and Federico Fazio at the back.

Midfield: Etienne Capoue could be pushing for a recall but Pochettino seems to be favouring Nabil Bentaleb in midfield these days. Ryan Mason is expected to come back in having been rested against Leicester City yesterday.

Attack: Andros Towsend could get a start with Erik Lamela given a breather at right-wing, but Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli should continue to support Harry Kane in attack with Roberto Soldado once again among the substitutes.

So this is how I think Spurs will line-up against United:
