Hugo Lloris will operate between the sticks for the upcoming fixture. The France shot-stopper will hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Monday.
Cristian Romero will form the centre-half partnership with Eric Dier, Ben Davies at the heart of Spurs’ backline.
Sergio Reguilon is a guaranteed starter at the left-back position, whereas Emerson Royal will fill in on the other flank as the right-back. The full-backs will be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing, respectively.
Harry Kane will lead the line for Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. The England international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the Everton defence that has conceded six goals in their last five matches across all competitions.
Lucas Moura could come off the bench to make a cameo appearance in the second forty-five minutes of the match if needed.
