Predicted Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs AS Monaco In A Must Win Match For The North Londoners

Tottenham Hotspur will look to utilise their momentum from the hard fought win against West Ham when they travel to France to face the high-flying leaders of Ligue 1- AS Monaco. Spurs are currently placed 5th in the English Premier League and are the only unbeaten team in the top-flight at the moment. But they haven’t been able to show the same amount of dexterity and ability in the Champions League. With 4 points from 4 matches, they certainly aren’t in an enviable position and need other results to go their way now.

Mauricio Pochettino will look to garner positives from this campaign for use and the first thing that leaps to the eye is their disparity in the from in home and away matches. They have lost both their affairs at home and while it might sound non-textbook, they have to take advantage of the away fixture at Monaco. It is basically a must-win match for them and the likes of Kane and Lamela have to stand up and be counted.  Spurs have been goal shy in recent weeks but the open nature of the game against the Hammers will give them more confidence to express themselves.

Monaco are in the pink of health and it is understood a Spurs win might even be counted as an upset but it is an upset the Lilywhites are more  than capable of inflicting.

T4O’S PREDICTED TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR XI VS AS MONACO (4-2-3-1)

DEFENCE

Hugo Lloris will make a trip to his country and will look to leave a good impression. He has been an example of consistency and Spurs will need him to be on top form. Kyle Walker and Danny Rose will be the two fullbacks as usual and their marauding runs aligned with the defensive nous will certainly give Tottenham a chance. With Toby Alderweireld injured, Eric Dier is once again expected to partner Jan Vertonghen in the centre of defence.

MIDFIELD

Poch might revert to a double pivot after a few experimental formations in recent weeks. In that case, Dembele and Wanyama will be the candidates for the job. Dembele will be vital if Spurs are to dominate the midfield battle with his physique and ability to retain the ball in addition to his dribbling skills makes the player an asset. Dele Alli can earn a recall in the No.10 position after a stint on the bench.

ATTACK

Eriksen is nailed on the left-wing while Lamela’s injury opens up the right-wing for Son to get back to life once again. Harry Kane is likely to lead the line again.
