In what could possibly be the one moment Spurs fans remember at the end of the season, the Capital One Cup match this Sunday could prove vital to how this season ends. If we win this game and (hopefully) finish fourth, then the season will have been a success.
However, if we lose on Sunday and are subjected to yet another year in the Europa League, then who knows? But coming off the back of a rather disappointing performance in mid-week against Fiorentina, the boys will want to bounce back in the best way possible. With a more or less fully fit team, Mauricio Pochettino has a array of talent to choose from, but these are just my opinions who is likely to start.
Goalkeeper: Michel Vorm
Whilst Hugo is clearly number one, Vorm is the cup goalkeeper and it would be rather unfair to him to miss out on the final, so starting spot goes to him.
Defence: Kyle Walker, Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Ben Davies
With the defence being solid for the majority of the games they’ve played together, there’s no need to change much. Originally, I thought Fazio might have had a chance of starting against Costa, after his performance in the 5-3 thriller at The Lane earlier in the season. However, after his performance in the Fiorentina match, I doubt highly he will push Dier out of the Squad.
Midfield: Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb, Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, Nacer Chadli
The midfield pretty much writes itself. Mason, Bentaleb and Eriksen are certain to play, provided they don’t get injured, but the only issue would be the wide areas. Pochettino has a habit of picking Lamela, as Erik does have a lot of running in his expensive legs, so Lamela seems to be a certain to play, but After the 5-3 win in January, Chadli might be put in to replicate his form that day.
Striker: Harry Kane
There’s no way in God’s Lilywhite world that this man doesn’t play. Simply because he’s Harry Kane. I’ve managed to convince myself that even if he is injured, he’s still going to pull on the Spurs shirt underneath the Wembley arch this Sunday.
