Mourinho To Make A Lot Of Changes | 4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup Vs Norwich City

Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to continue their winning momentum when they lock horns with Norwich City at Carrow Road tomorrow evening. The Lilywhites are coming into this game on the back of a narrow 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, and a win could potentially help them overtake Chelsea, though the Blues must also lose their game against Arsenal.

Here is how Jose Mourinho’s men could line up against the Canaries this weekend.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Defence

Mourinho could make a few much-needed changes to the backline in order to tackle this hectic holiday schedule. Serge Aurier, in particular, is tipped to make way for Juan Foyth at right-back. The Ivorian is currently the only reliable option available in that position, so it’s probably safe to give him a breather this weekend.

Jan Vertonghen could also return to the bench, with Danny Rose likely to operate as the left-back as Mourinho seeks to revert to a four-man backline. The central defensive partnership of Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez, however, is likely to remain the same. Foyth is also an option, but that would force Mourinho to unleash Kyle Walker-Peters at right-back.

Hugo Lloris, meanwhile, is set to continue his spell on the sidelines, paving the way for Paulo Gazzaniga to once again retain his role in between the sticks for Spurs.

Midfield

Tanguy Ndombele is a doubt heading into this clash after Mourinho confirmed that the midfielder wasn’t feeling well after the win against Brighton. As for Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks, both players will miss the clash due to suspension, having picked up five yellow cards this season.

This will enable Mourinho to give youngster Olivier Skipp a rare start in central midfield. The 19-year-old could start alongside Eric Dier at the base of Spurs’ 4-2-3-1 formation.

Attack

Giovani Lo Celso is a favourite to start, at the expense of Dele Alli. The Argentine made quite an impression after coming on as a substitute in midweek. He is expected to operate as the lone number ten, ahead of Christian Eriksen and Alli, who is set to receive a breather.

Elsewhere in the attack, Erik Lamela is unlikely to get a starting berth, having just returned from injury. Therefore, Lucas Moura is expected to retain his place at right-wing while Ryan Sessegnon could also continue on the opposite flank, with Son Heung-Min serving a three-game suspension.

And finally, the Tottenham attack will be spearheaded by Harry Kane. The English international scored in the win over Brighton and will be full of confidence heading into this fixture.
