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

By on December 30, 2014

Tottenham will be hoping to continue their recent good form when they take on Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Thursday 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 is expected to recall Danny Rose after giving him a breather against Man Utd so Ben Davies could drop back to the bench. Kyle Walker is also likely to be recalled in place of Vlad Chiriches to start at the back alongside Jan Vertonghen and Federico Fazio – who have formed an impressive partnership in recent weeks.

Midfield: Etienne Capoue could be pushing for a recall but Pochettino seems to be favouring Nabil Bentaleb in midfield these days so he could come back in to partner Ryan Mason in midfield having missed the draw against United through illness.

Attack: Andros Towsend could make way for Erik Lamela after the Argentine was given a breather last time out, 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:

    If Rose and Bentaleb start then we have no hope of getting any kind of result. Rose is SHITE. Davies has been so far ahead of him defensively that MP would have to have rocks in his head to select Rose ahead of Davies. As for Bentaleb, switches off far to often and has been caught out in big games before. Chelsea’s midfield is dynamite so we can’t afford a passenger and that’s all Bentaleb is

    When I saw the line up against Man.United I knew we had a chance because our mid-field did not consist of Mason and Bentaleb. If Bentaleb plays against Chelsea I will put my money on a Chelsea win.This boy should be kept for games against the weaker teams.Spurs will need more quality in mid-field ,Dembele / Kapoue . Rose also to weak for this game. The team above will get a hiding from Chelsea.Team selection is so important for this game.

    Bentaleb, Rose and Chadli should Not Be in Starting Line Up.
    We have Greater Quality and Experienced Players that can Replace and Give Us Hope of a Win.
    Agree, Starting Line Up is So So Important.
    Dembele, Davies and Townsend Must Start
