Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns with Sporting Lisbon at Jose Alvalade Stadium on Tuesday night, hoping to pick up all three points away from home. The hosts will be coming into the match on the back of a narrow 3-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt, whereas the Lilywhites recorded a 2-0 win against Marseille.
Antonio Conte will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation in midweek; however, he might keep changes to a minimum for the upcoming encounter.
3-4-3 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup Vs Sporting Lisbon
Hugo Lloris will operate between the sticks for the upcoming fixture. The France shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Tuesday.
Cristian Romero will form the centre-half partnership with Eric Dier, Ben Davies at the heart of Spurs’ backline.
Ivan Perisic should start at the left wing-back position, whereas Emerson Royal will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back. The full-backs will be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Son Heung-min and Richarlison will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right wing, respectively.
Harry Kane will lead the line for Tottenham Hotspur in midweek. The England international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the Sporting defence.
Dejan Kulusevski could come off the bench to make a cameo appearance in the second forty-five minutes of the match if needed.
