Tottenham Hotspur will welcome Eintracht Frankfurt at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Wednesday night as they try to secure a win in front of their home fans in the UEFA Champions League. Spurs managed to earn a narrow 1-0 victory away at Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend. Hence, the North London club would be confident about their chances of picking up a positive result in this midweek European clash versus Frankfurt.
Antonio Conte will opt for a 3-5-2 formation once again and could make some changes to his starting XI for this game. Clement Lenglet could get a chance to play from the start while Ben Davies drops to the bench for Spurs this week.
3-5-2 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Eintracht Frankfurt
Hugo Lloris will function in goal for the London giants after he kept back-to-back clean sheets in his last two appearances. Conte could name a back three of Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Clement Lenglet as they try to keep the Frankfurt attackers frustrated throughout the game.
As mentioned earlier, Ben Davies will provide cover for the centre-half spots on the bench.
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur will operate as the holding midfielders as they hope to keep things tidy at the back and control the flow of the game at the centre of the park.
Ivan Perisic might get a chance to catch the eye on the left flank while Matt Doherty hopes to give a good account of himself as the right-sided wide player. Both of them will have to make a few well-timed runs out on the wide areas so that they can create enough chances for their teammates inside the Frankfurt penalty box.
Ryan Sessegnon and Oliver Skipp will be available for selection on Conte’s bench as they await their chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.
Harry Kane is a major doubt for this game but is expected to recover in time from his ankle injury. The English forward will get the opportunity to spearhead Tottenham’s attack along with Heung-min Son in the final third.
Kane managed to score the only goal of the game versus Brighton last weekend, so we can expect him to be a constant menace in front of the Frankfurt goal this Wednesday night.
Richarlison will have to be content with a place on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if Spurs are in need of a goal by then.
