Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to extend their winning run to three games in all competitions when they lock horns with RB Leipzig on Wednesday. It will be the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 stage fixture and a win at home could give the Lilywhites an excellent chance of advancing to the next round.
Predicted 4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs RB Leipzig
Jose Mourinho is not expected to make any alternations to the side that secured a stunning late victory against Aston Villa in the last game. Hugo Lloris had a bad game but is likely to get the nod ahead of Paulo Gazzaniga in goal.
Serge Aurier, it seems, has made himself a reliable option at right-back under Mourinho. He is almost a guaranteed starter while Ben Davies is also likely to retain his place on the opposite flank, ahead of Japhet Tanganga.
In central defence, Toby Alderweireld will be keen on making a comeback after a rusty performance against Aston Villa. He will lead the Tottenham backline, with additional backup from Davinson Sanchez. The Colombian has performed well and will be keen on maintaining his consistency.
Moussa Sissoko is apparently the only Tottenham midfielder out with a long-term injury. The Frenchman is seeking to return to training in early April.
Nevertheless, Harry Winks should be tipped to start ahead of Eric Dier in the holding midfield role. The young midfielder is steadily improving under Mourinho, but it will be interesting to see how he fares against a much more dynamic RB Leipzig press.
Winks is expected to be partnered by Tanguy Ndombele and Dele Alli in a slightly more advanced role. The technical prowess of these two players will be important as Tottenham Hotspur look to impose their dominance on the proceedings.
Son Heung-Min has scored in each of his last five games for Spurs. He is set to lead the attack this midweek and coming up against a decimated Leipzig defence; the South Korean international will have an excellent chance of continuing his impressive scoring run.
Son will likely be partnered by the wide attacking duo of Lucas Moura and new signing Steven Bergwijn, who has made quite an impact with his performances. Giovani Lo Celso is also an option for Mourinho. However, we expect the Argentine to be used as a super-sub in the second half, perhaps at the expense of Ndombele.
