Tottenham Hotspur will be looking for their first Premier League win of 2020 when they play hosts to Norwich City on Wednesday. The Lilywhites have a rough start to the year, securing just one win in all competitions, which came in the FA Cup third-round replay against Championship side Middlesbrough. Hence, a win could be critical as Jose Mourinho’s men look to remain in the fight for the top four places this season.
Meanwhile, here is how Spurs could line-up against the Canaries this midweek.
Predicted 4-2-2-2 Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Norwich City
Mourinho utilised Japhet Tanganga at left-back against Watford, and he could do the same thing this midweek, especially with Ben Davies injured while Danny Rose is a doubt heading into this game. Tanganga starting at left-back means Serge Aurier is a guaranteed starter on the opposite flank.
In central defence, Davinson Sanchez may once again have to settle for a place on the bench, allowing Jan Vertonghen to retain his place in the starting eleven. The veteran Belgian defender is expected to partner his compatriot Toby Alderweireld at the heart of Tottenham’s four-man backline.
Hugo Lloris is finally back in training after remaining on the sidelines for a majority of the campaign. However, Wednesday’s clash against Norwich might come a bit too soon for the Frenchman, meaning Paulo Gazzaniga is likely to retain his place in goal.
Moussa Sissoko will continue his spell on the sidelines while Tanguy Ndombele is a doubt. This should allow Gedson Fernandes to make his starting debut in the Premier League. The young Portuguese, who arrived on loan from SL Benfica in January, did feature as a substitute in the draw with Watford last time out.
He is expected to partner Harry Winks at the base of Tottenham’s 4-2-2-2. It would be interesting to see how these two young midfielders fare alongside each other.
Moving forward, Giovani Lo Celso is likely to get the nod ahead of Christian Eriksen, having impressed Mourinho in recent weeks. The Argentine could operate in the attacking midfield slot, alongside Dele Alli, who is a guaranteed starter. These two will be tasked with the responsibility of providing the creative essence in the final third.
And finally, Spurs will be led by the offensive duo of Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min, both of whom will be keen on making an impression after failing to find the back of the net in recent weeks.
