CM: Eric Dier
Dier will look to sit in front of the back three and provide that extra layer of protection. He has become brilliant at doing this recently and will play a similar role here.
CM: Mousa Dembele
Will be allowed to be a little more adventurous and will look to make some inroads with his powerful, surging runs through the midfield. He should keep his place from the game against Burnley.
CAM: Christian Eriksen
Wasn’t quite at his best against Burnley last time out, simply trying to pick out passes that weren’t quite there. He reamins a key man for Spurs in terms of creating chances and should keep his place for this one.
CAM: Dele Alli
Has been in the news recently for his ‘joke’ with Kyle Walker. This shouldn’t play on his mind and he will look to appear in pockets of space to create some chances for himself and others, and will be key for Spurs if they are to pick up all three points here.
ST: Harry Kane
No excuses now, Harry. August is over. With the seemingly unlucky month out of the way, Kane can now get back to goalscoring duties for Spurs, and a goal or two wouldn’t go amiss.
