Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to return to winning ways when they play hosts to Norwich City in the 5th round of the FA Cup on Wednesday. The Lilywhites have lost their last three matches in all competitions, and a win could be critical with the club due to play RB Leipzig in less than two weeks.
Here is how Spurs could line up against the Canaries this midweek.
Predicted 4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Norwich City
Against Wolves, Jose Mourinho made a questionable decision of opting for a back-three that consisted of Eric Dier, Japhet Tanganga and Davinson Sanchez. All of them struggled to keep up with the likes of Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez, which could force the Portuguese mastermind into a rethink going into this midweek.
In fact, a back-four could be on the cards with Toby Alderweireld likely to return to the squad. Sanchez could partner the Belgian at the heart of the four-man backline.
Serge Aurier is set to retain his place at right-back. He was one of the better performers against Wolves, and his presence out wide could be critical for Spurs. Ben Davies looks like the only option at left-back, with Ryan Sessegnon out injured while Tanganga had a miserable game against Wolves.
Hugo Lloris missed the last game with a groin injury. He is unlikely to feature in this one either, with Paulo Gazzaniga set to retain his place in goal.
Tanguy Ndombele could return to the side, having made a late substitute appearance against Wolves. His presence in the team should offer additional support to Harry Winks, who was completely isolated in the last game.
Giovani Lo Celso, meanwhile, should start in a more advanced role, thanks to Ndombele’s potential inclusion to the lineup. The Argentine will look to spark up things in the final third, though he must get the necessary support from his teammates.
Lucas Moura could be replaced by Erik Lamela this midweek as the Brazilian has often been criticised for his lack of end product in the final third. Lamela, in contrast, is capable of making an impact with his aggression and work-rate.
Steven Bergwijn, on the other hand, is a guaranteed starter at left-wing, especially with Son Heung-Min out injured. The Dutchman has made quite an impact since joining from PSV in January. His pace and tenacity out wide could cause real problems for the Norwich City defence this midweek.
And finally, the Tottenham attack could once again be led by Dele Alli. With Son and Harry Kane out injured, the English international is the best option for Mourinho in the false nine slot.
