Alli Dropped, No Son: Tottenham Team News And Predicted Line-Up To Face Burnley

CM: Harry Winks

Winks has looked extremely strong this season, and thankfully he added a little bit of pace to the Spurs passing when he came on against Hull. He almost scored an excellent goal near the end, and I think he deserves a start here.

CM: Victor Wanyama

Wanyama will be glad to have got on the scoresheet against Hull after missing a glorious chance against Manchester United for a point. He was solid in midweek, but needs to cut out the occasional misplaced pass.

RAM: Moussa Sissoko

I thought Sissoko was ok on Wednesday. And ok at best. He had some good moments, but some awful ones. We are still waiting to see why Spurs forked out £30m, and he might get another chance to prove his worth again here.

LAM: Christian Eriksen

I though Eriksen played well adopting some deeper positions in the midfield, but I don’t think this is the game for him to be playing there. Burnley are a lot more physical than Hull, and I fear Eriksen would lose some of the midfield battles. He would be better off playing higher up the pitch here.

ST: Harry Kane

Wasn’t at his usual best up front against Hull and was well marshalled and marked. If you give him any space, he will take full advantage. He will lead the line for sure.
