In-form Tottenham travel to Everton  looking for a ninth win in their last 11 Premier League games. 

Christian Eriksen’s last gasp winner against Burnley moved Mauricio Pochettino’s side to within five points of Liverpool at the summit, though the Reds have subsequently increased that gap after a victory at Wolves on Friday night.

Spurs have been boosted by the return of Davinson Sanchez following a two month absence, but they will be without Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen until the New Year as their injury problems mount.

Here’s how Pochettino’s side could line up.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) – Recording an outstanding 80th clean sheet in 219 appearances last time out, the shot-stopper will be chasing a seventh shut-out this term.

Keiran Trippier (RB) – Returning in midweek, the 28-year-old will be praying for a run of games following a spate of injuries that saw him miss the majority of November. 

Toby Alderweireld (CB) – Spurs’ most experienced defender, the Belgium international must martial the back-line against talented Brazilian duo Richarlison and Bernard. 

Juan Foyth (CB) – Filling in for the injured Vertonghen, Pochettino will hope that his young Argentine defender can put in another composed performance.

Ben Davies (LB) – The recent return to form of Danny Rose has raised question marks about Davies’ long-term place in the side, but the Welshman may get the nod due to rotation.

2. Midfielders

Harry Winks (CM) – Two shy of equalling his Premier League appearance tally for the whole of last term, the England international is a solid defensive option in front of the back four.

Moussa Sissoko (CM) – Possessing speed and strength, the Frenchman has answered critics with several impressive performances this season.

Dele Alli (CAM) – Recently surpassing greats Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard in reaching more goals and assists combined after 100 top flight games, it’s fair to say Alli has already cemented his name in Tottenham folkore. 

Christian Eriksen (CAM) – Pivotal to Spurs’ chance creation, the Danish playmaker has been nothing short of sensational since his return from injury. 

3. Forwards

Christian Eriksen (RW) – Pivotal to Spurs’ chance creation, the Danish playmaker has been nothing short of sensational since his return from injury.

Harry Kane (ST) – Bagging a double to become the club’s all time top scorer in the reverse win over Everton, Kane has continued where he left off last season – netting nine goals in 17 appearances this campaign. 

 

Lucas Moura (LW) – Should Pochettino choose the Brazilian over influential Son Heung-min, Moura will look to register a sixth league goal this term.
