Tottenham travel to Selhurst Park to play Crystal Palace in the Premier League this Saturday. Palace are six games without a win and will be hoping to claim all three points in the London derby to edge away from the relegation zone, currently sitting two points above.
In contrast, Tottenham are coming off the back of a nervy 3-2 win against Wolves at Molineux and will be buoyed by their last gasp 2-1 victory against PSV in the week.
Spurs will be looking to pick up three more points in what is already their best ever start to a Premier League campaign.
With all that in mind, here’s how Spurs could potentially look on Saturday night.
1. Goalkeeper & Defenders
Hugo Lloris (GK) – The Frenchman will likely return in goal after he served a suspension midweek. Paulo Gazzaniga will be pushing to remain in goal following a good display against PSV.
Kieran Tripper (RB) – Appeared as a late substitute against PSV and will be looking to come back into the team and put in a good display.
Davinson Sanchez (CB) – A rock at the back. Arguably the number one centre back at the club currently and a reliable performer this campaign.
Toby Alderweireld (CB) – The Dutchman hasn’t quite been himself this season following speculation about a summer transfer but will need to be at his best to keep Zaha quiet.
Ben Davies (LB) – Cementing his place in the absence of Danny Rose, Davies is a reliable player without ever doing anything remarkable.
Christian Eriksen (CM) – Will likely continue in a deeper role following Mousa Dembele’s injury. He is good enough to create chances wherever he is playing.
Harry Winks (CM) – Really caught the eye midweek against PSV, the young Englishman is starting to shine at Spurs.
Son Heung-min (LM) – The South Korean is a reliable performer for the north London side and someone Pochettino can trust to cause Crystal Palace some problems.
Erik Lamela (CAM) – Likely to get the nod over Dele Alli, who played midweek after returning from injury. Has performed well this season when selected and will be looking to add to his goal tally this season.
Lucas Moura (RM) – One of Spurs’ best players this season, the £25m paid to prise him away from PSG in January is looking like a bit of a steal.
Harry Kane (ST) – Who else but Harry Kane? Buoyed by his two goals in midweek, the striker looks to have found his mojo again. With six league goals to his name this season, he will want to continue his good form and put the ‘Harry Kane looks tired’ debate to bed.
