Tottenham Hotspur will entertain Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening as they hope to beat their London rivals in front of their home supporters. Spurs have won their last four matches across all competitions since suffering a 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester City. Meanwhile, the Pensioners come into this clash at the back of a 0-0 draw at home to Everton.
Mauricio Pochettino might choose to start with a 4-2-3-1 formation and could name Harry Winks ahead of Eric Dier in his first-team.
4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Chelsea
Hugo Lloris will lace up for Spurs to face the Chelsea attackers on Saturday evening despite making some major errors in recent weeks. The Tottenham defence would be comprised of Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez who will operate as the centre-halves with Jan Vertonghen currently out injured.
Kieran Trippier is a significant doubt for this weekend’s clash at London, but he should recover in time to start at right-back. Ben Davies would look to work his socks off down the left side of Pochettino’s backline. Danny Rose is still out with an injury which should keep Davies in the Tottenham starting XI for now.
The Spurs defence has conceded four goals in their past four outings across all competitions, but they did manage to keep a clean sheet versus Crystal Palace before the international break. Pochettino would keep his fingers crossed that his defenders can do a decent job against the Pensioners on Saturday.
The Tottenham boss might opt to start with Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks in central midfield to add some more solidity to his team at the middle of the park. Eric Dier needs to be dropped as he has not been able to play his best football so far this season.
The talented trio of Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, and Lucas Moura might be deployed in the opposition half as they look to link up and cause some headaches for the Chelsea defenders.
Both Dele Alli and Heung-min Son will add more firepower for the North Londoners from the bench.
Harry Kane is a guaranteed starter for Spurs up top. The English centre-forward got a little bit of rest during the international break which will help him perform at his best in the coming weeks as fixtures come thick and fast in the Premier League.
