A sweet victory in front of a buzzing White Hart Lane lifted Mauricio Pochettino’s side to the 5th place in the points table 12 games into the Premier League season. But with European duties calling, Spurs will have to turn their attention to their trip to the Stade Louis in their Group B encounter against AS Monaco. The French outfit are top of the table in their group and are almost certain to qualify while Spurs need a positive result to keep their hopes in the competition alive for another round. Both teams are expected to play strong sides in search of all three points and here is the predicted lineup that Pochettino might field for this game:

Team News:

Pochettino will still be without his defensive duo Ben Davis and Toby Alderweireld for this game. Erik Lamela will also miss out but there are no other injuries to worry about ahead of this trip to France.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Hugo Lloris:

The first choice shot-stopper for Spurs, Lloris had a decent outing against West Ham and he will start in-between the sticks against Monaco.

Kyle Walker:

Had a rather nervy night against West Ham but he should keep his place and should be back to his best if the visitors are to get anything from this game.

Eric Dier:

The versatile English international has done a superb job at the back for the team recently and he should keep his place in the side for this game.

Jan Vertonghen:

The martial of the back-line for the Spurs, Vertonghen will have to play an important role to keep the home side away from goal for 90 long minutes in France.

Danny Rose:

Had a decent outing against West Ham but Rose will have to be more disciplined against Monaco in this crunch Champions League encounter.

Victor Wanyama:

The former Southampton man was busy against West Ham and he will have to play a similar role against the French side on Wednesday.

Mousa Dembele:

The Belgian had a rather sedate night against the Hammers but he is a quality player who can spring to life under pressure in France.

Moussa Sissoko:

The former Newcastle man was an unused substitute in the super victory at the weekend and he could be back in the starting lineup on the wing for this clash.

Dele Alli:

Though not in the starting lineup against West, Alli is an important player for Spurs and that showed as much in his substitute appearance on the night. He should be back in the starting XI for this game against AS Monaco.

Heung Min-Son:

The South Korean was a superb influence late in the game in the victory against the Hammers and he should start this game on the wing for Pochettino’s side.

Harry Kane:

Though not yet at his best, the English international changed the entire course of the game with a late brace and he will hope to have a similar influence on this game against Monaco.
