Predicted 4-2-3-1 Tottenham XI to face Chelsea in the Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur have been in fine form in the Premier League in recent weeks and the Lilywhites are flying high with back-to-back victories over Wolves and Crystal Palace.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men sit 4th in the Premier League standings, just a point behind London rivals Chelsea and they will be looking for their first victory against a top six side this season, having lost to Liverpool and Manchester City earlier in the season.

However, they will face stiff competition from Chelsea who are unbeaten across all competitions this season and the Blues will hold the slight edge in Saturday’s top of the table clash at Wembley.

Team News

Mauricio Pochettino has a lot of injuries to contend with for the all-important game on Saturday. Centre-backs Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez are ruled out with thigh injuries while Kieran Trippier is doubtful to feature in the starting eleven as he continues to regain full fitness from a groin injury.

Mousa Dembele has also been ruled out due to an ankle injury and Danny Rose is yet to recover fully from his groin strain.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Predicted XI

1. Hugo Lloris (GK)

The Frenchman has blown hot and cold between the sticks this season and Pochettino will be expecting him to rise to the occasion on Saturday.

2. Serge Aurier (RB)

Trippier’s injury is likely to open the door for the Ivorian to get a start but he will have his work cut out against Eden Hazard.

3. Juan Foyth (CB)

He scored the winner in the previous game and that should give the youngster a lot of confidence heading into the game against Chelsea.

4. Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The Belgian hasn’t really been at the top of his game this season and will have to be at the top of his game against a potent attacking force on Saturday.

5. Ben Davies (LB)

He delivered a beautiful cross to set up Harry Kane in the Champions League and Pochettino will be hoping that he can come up with something similar.

6. Eric Dier (CDM)

He played for England in the UEFA Nations League, which means that he should be fit and ready to go against Chelsea.

7. Harry Winks (CDM)

The youngster has really impressed with his calmness and composure in central midfield and Pochettino should continue to rely on him.

8. Erik Lamela (RW)

He has been one of the standout performers for the Lilywhites since making a comeback from an injury earlier in the season.

9. Lucas Moura (LW)

The Brazilian has been a lively presence in the final third and has always troubled the opposition with his pace and dribbling.

10. Christian Eriksen (CAM)

Pochettino will be banking heavily on the Danish playmaker to come up with a fantastic performance on Saturday.
