Following a 5-0 triumph over non-league Marine in the FA Cup, Tottenham Hotspur restart their Premier League campaign on Wednesday as they take on Fulham at home. The Lilywhites were initially supposed to play Aston Villa at Villa Park, but the game had to be rescheduled amid Covid-19 spikes. Nonetheless, Jose Mourinho’s men will be eyeing their fourth successive wins in all competitions this midweek.
Predicted Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Fulham
Mourinho is expected to revert a lot of the changes he made on the weekend fixture against Marine FC. Starting in goal, Hugo Lloris may return to the side, at the expense of Joe Hart.
Eric Dier is another player to be recalled to the eleven. The Englishman should partner Toby Alderweireld, who was hooked off at half-time in the last game. It will be interesting to see whether these two can retain their solidity at the heart of the Spurs backline this midweek.
Elsewhere, Serge Aurier is likely to return to the side ahead of Matt Doherty at right-back while Sergio Reguilon should also replace Ben Davies on the opposite flank as Mourinho returns to his strongest possible defensive unit in search of a win.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had picked up a late knock against Brentford. But, the Dane was rested against Marine, and it remains unlikely that he will miss out on this fixture.
The former Bayern Munich man could thus continue at central midfield alongside Moussa Sissoko, who is likely to get the nod ahead of Harry Winks at the base of Tottenham’s 4-3-3.
The two midfielders will be hoping to provide additional coverage for the attacking midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. Although Dele Alli made a good impression against Marine, it remains unlikely that he’ll stay at the club for long, while Giovani Lo Celso is out injured.
In the attacking department, Mourinho is guaranteed to recall two of his best forwards in Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane. It could mean Carlos Vinicius may have to settle for a place on the bench, along with Lucas Moura.
In the additional attacking slot, Steven Bergwijn has the upper hand over Lucas and Gareth Bale, although the latter could potentially make a substitute appearance in the second half. Vinicius, too, could be an option should Jose prefer additional firepower going forward.
