Tottenham Hotspur face Eintracht Frankfurt in their Champions League trip to Deutsche Bank Park on Tuesday. Spurs come into the match on the back of a 3-1 defeat against Arsenal in the North London Derby, so they will be looking to bounce back and grab a win against the German outfit.
Antonio Conte could opt for the 3-4-3 formation and is expected to make a few changes as Yves Bissouma gets the nod over Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg while Richarlison continues in the right-wing position.
3-4-3 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI Vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Hugo Lloris will operate in between the sticks for the visitors. Conte will probably go with a back three of Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez as the latter gets the nod over Clement Lenglet. The trio will need to give a strong performance as they try to keep Frankfurt’s attackers at bay throughout the game.
Lenglet will take a spot on the bench while providing cover for the centre-back positions as Ben Davies is likely to sit out with his fitness in doubt.
Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur will anchor the midfield for Spurs as they try to distribute possession to their teammates efficiently. They will be tasked with making some decisive passes down the final third to create enough opportunities in front of the goal.
Ivan Perisic will function as the left-sided wide player while Ryan Sessegnon looks to give a good account of himself on the right flank. Conte will ask both his full-backs to get forward and stretch the opposition while remaining compact.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Emerson Royal will be available for selection on the bench as they wait for their opportunity to impress in the second half if needed.
Heung-min Son will function as the left-sided winger while Richarlison will hope to catch the eye on the right flank.
Harry Kane will lead the line for Tottenham in the final third. The English striker will have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden for Spurs on his own up top.
Dejan Kulusevski and Lucas Moura remain doubtful due to injury concerns, so the North London club will have no other option on the bench to provide cover for the front three.
