4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Everton: Son And Dier To Start?

Tottenham Hotspur have not been able to find consistency this season but they are closing in on a place in the top-4 of the points table, standing just three points below Liverpool, in the 4th place. They have picked up some momentum in recent games but managed to pick up just a point from their clash against West Ham United in the previous round.

They will look to get back to winning ways when they welcome Everton to Wembley. The Toffees crashed out of the 3rd round of the League Cup against Liverpool last weekend and lost to Manchester United in the previous round. They do have some fresh faces to field but Mauricio Pochettino will be confident of landing all three points. Here is the predicted lineup he might field for this tie:

Team News:

The Argentine manager is still without the services of defenders Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose, both of whom are ruled out for this game. Young midfielder Harry Winks is close to a return from an ankle injury but is expected to play a role this weekend.

Expected lineup (4-2-3-1):

Defense:

The manager has stuck with French international Hugo Lloris on goal for years now and he will hope to have an easy game, against a mis-firing Everton side. With Alderweireld absent, Davinson Sanchez, a summer recruit will start yet another game for Spurs, alongside Belgian ace Jan Vertonghen, who will be responsible to act as the senior CB in this game.

Danny Rose’s injury will mean that Ben Davies is the only choice at left-back for Pochettino but he might go with Serge Aurier at left-back, leaving Kieran Trippier on the bench.

Midfield:

The manager does not have too many options in this role, thanks to injuries to key players. This might see Pochettino stick with a midfield partnership of Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele. It has a good mix of solidity and stability and if both players come out with their A-game, Spurs can easily walk away with all three points.

Attack:

Record-breaking striker Harry Kane has been in sensational form this season and will be the danger man for the Toffees. Young Holgate and Ashley Williams will both be tested, not just by the English striker but by the playmaking abilities of Dele Alli, who is also slowly finding some form.

He should be accompanied by Christian Eriksen on the right flank and Heung Min-Son, who will add some width to the attack, on the left flank.

Here is how they might line up:
