Tottenham Hotspur host Everton on Monday hoping to bounce back to winning form. The Lilywhites have looked dismal since the restart, notably receiving a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Sheffield United in their last game. With Arsenal and Sheffield, both pushing ahead on the league table, securing a win could be critical for Jose Mourinho’s men this weekend.
Predicted Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Everton
Mourinho doesn’t have any fresh injury concerns ahead of this fixture. However, he could be coaxed to make a few changes to the backline that conceded there goals against the Blades.
Eric Dier’s calamity in the last game, in particular, should pave the way for Toby Alderweireld to return to the starting lineup. The Belgian is set to rejoin Davinson Sanchez, at the heart of Spurs’ four-man backline.
There could be further changes at left-back, with Jan Vertonghen potentially replacing Ben Davies, who has been absolutely awful under Mourinho. Vertonghen’s experience and aerial prowess could be useful, especially if Spurs do employ a more compact defensive shape.
Meanwhile, Serge Aurier and Hugo Lloris are both expected to retain their places in the starting lineup despite a mediocre display against Sheffield.
Harry Winks is perhaps a guaranteed starter in this fixture following Moussa Sissoko’s atrocious performance in midweek. The Englishman could, therefore, assume the role in central midfield alongside Giovani Lo Celso.
However, Tanguy Ndombele is also pushing for a start and could be a potential alternative to Lo Celso in the double-pivot. Same can be said for Gedson Fernandes, who has not exactly been utilised by Mourinho so far this campaign.
Nevertheless, Lo Celso once again operating in the number eight slot means Dele Alli might finally receive a starting berth, at the likely expense of Steven Bergwijn. The English international will be key in Spurs’ chance creation and production as the Lilywhites look to breach the Everton backline this weekend.
Lucas Moura has consistently started under Mourinho despite his lack of consistency, and the Brazilian is once again likely to get the nod ahead of Bergwijn at right-wing, with Son Heung-Min being a guaranteed starter on the opposite flank. These two must improve their performances, however, having appeared very ineffective since the restart.
And finally, the Tottenham Hotspur attack would be spearheaded by none other than Harry Kane, who was one of the bright spots for the Lilywhites in the last game.
