Tottenham Hotspur will welcome Olympique Marseille at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Wednesday night as they try to kick off this UEFA Champions League campaign with a win at home. Spurs managed to earn a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Fulham in the London derby last weekend. Hence, their confidence would be quite high ahead of this game. However, the London giants simply cannot afford to get complacent with his Champions League encounter at home.

Antonio Conte will probably set his side up in a 3-4-2-1 formation and could play Ivan Perisic from the start in this game. Otherwise, Tottenham are expected to keep changes to a minimum for this home clash versus Marseille.

3-4-2-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Marseille

Defence

Hugo Lloris will play in between the sticks for the North London club after shipping in one goal in the London derby last weekend. Conte could name a back three of Eric Dier, Clement Lenglet and Cristian Romero for this game. All three Spurs centre-backs need to work together collectively to stop Marseille from scoring in midweek.

Davinson Sanchez will offer cover for the centre-back positions on the bench.

Midfield

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur will operate as the holding midfielders for Spurs as they focus on enjoying more possession of the ball at the centre of the park.

Ivan Perisic will fill in as a left-sided wide player while Emerson Royal hopes to impress as the right wing-back.

Both Heung-min Son and Richarlison will function as the free-flowing, attacking midfielders in the Marseille half as they look to offer adequate support to Harry Kane up top.

Dejan Kulusevski and Yves Bissouma will have to be content with a place on the bench but could come on to influence the game in the latter stages of the contest if required.

Attack

Harry Kane will spearhead Conte’s attack in the final third. He has been amongst the goals of late and will fancy his chances of finding the back of the net when he laces up to face off against the Marseille centre-backs in this midweek game in the English capital.

Lucas Moura will be sidelined for this game due to injury. Hence, Conte will be a little short on options on the attacking end of the field. Still, Spurs should have a strong squad on paper to get the job done at home versus the French side this Wednesday night.
