Tottenham Hotspur are hoping to advance to the final of the Carabao Cup when they lock horns with Brentford on Tuesday. Although the Lilywhites were lucky to not face either of the two Manchester clubs, they could be in for a tricky affair against a Brentford side who have beaten four Premier League clubs on their way to the semi-final.
Predicted Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Brentford
Jose Mourinho could ring in a few changes from the side that beat Leeds United in the last game. Toby Alderweireld, in particular, could be given a breather, with Davinson Sanchez expected to come back into the starting eleven.
The Colombian international should partner Eric Dier at the heart of the four-man backline this midweek. As for the fullback slot, Ben Davies may have to opt for a place on the bench, thus paving the way for Sergio Reguilon to start at left-back.
As far as the right-back is concerned, Matt Doherty faces suspension after accumulating two yellows cards against Leeds United. His absence guarantees a place for Serge Aurier in the starting lineup while Hugo Lloris should retain his place in goal ahead of Joe Hart.
Mourinho could make one little change in central midfield this week. Harry Winks has started the last two games for the Lilywhites, so he might make way for Moussa Sissoko this time. The Frenchman should thus renew his partnership with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg at the base of Tottenham’s 4-3-3.
As for the attacking midfield slot, Tanguy Ndombele is the obvious option, although Dele Alli is also hoping to make a substitute appearance. The Englishman seems almost destined to start in the upcoming FA Cup game against Marine as well.
Mourinho has no reason to bench any of his two top strikers in Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, knowing he’ll have the opportunity to rest them both in the coming weeks. We could thus expect them to spearhead the Tottenham attack against Brentford.
Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura, on the other hand, are competing for the additional attacking slot. Lucas is the favourite considering the fact that Bergwijn had started in the recent win over Leeds United on the weekend. Mourinho also has the option of deploying Reguilon on the left flank, should he opt for a more defensive approach.
