Predicted Tottenham XI to face Arsenal in the Premier League

Tottenham will resume Premier League duties as they welcome Arsenal for a London Derby. The Lilywhites have been a bit underwhelming in their recent games as they struggled to win their last two but won the three before those.

Arsenal, meanwhile, aren’t having the best of times as they have lost 2 of their last 5 winning only 2. Spurs will be expected to edge this one out based on form.

A major question remains regarding Harry Kane’s fitness but Mourinho is confident that he will be fit for the game. Alderweireld could be involved in the game but doubts still remain. Reguilon is expected to return to action.

Another forward, Carlos Vinicius is also a minor doubt for the game. Erik Lamela continues his recovery and could be an absentee for this one. Other than that, Mourinho will have most of his squad to choose from.

Probable Tottenham XI vs Arsenal

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Hugo Lloris (GK)

The French custodian will no doubt return for this all-important clash with the neighbours.

Sergio Reguilon (LB)

While he might be a doubt after missing the last game, he is expected to displace Davies at left-back.

Japhet Tanganga (CB)

Alderweireld still remains a doubt and might not be risked for this one. Tanganga continues in his stead.

Eric Dier (CB)

The makeshift centre-back has done rather well playing in central defence and will look to continue in the same vein.

Serge Aurier (RB)

The explosive right-back might just be given the nod over Doherty given his form.

Moussa Sissoko (DM)

No one provides as much dynamism and energy to the midfield as Sissoko does. Should be restored in the starting lineup.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (DM)

Spurs’ best buy this season, the midfield destroyer has slotted seamlessly into the side.

Tanguy Ndombele (CAM)

Keeps his place from the last game. Has been in good form this season.

Heung-Min Son (LW)

Son starting this game is a no-brainer. Should move back to his preferred left-wing role though.

Steven Bergwijn (RW)

The Dutchman will be hoping for a start and not just another substitute appearance.

Harry Kane (ST)

Doubts remain over his availability but he could well make it to the starting XI if he indeed regains full fitness.
