Predicted Tottenham line-up to face Inter Milan in the Champions League

Tottenham Hotspur pulled off a massive 3-1 win against Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend to further cement their place in the top four. Spurs were sublime and completely outplayed the Blues, who were handed their first defeat of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino now turns his attention to more pressing matters in hand, facing Inter Milan in the Champions League. Spurs are currently placed third in their group and have to win this game to have any hopes of qualifying for the next round.

Team News

Mousa Dembele, Davinson Sanchez and Kieran Trippier are all out for this game. Danny Rose and Vincent Janssen are long-term absentees and are still not ready to return to training. Pochettino has to make a few changes against the Italian outfit.

Probable Tottenham Hotspur XI

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Hugo Lloris (GK)

The Frenchman didn’t have much to do against Chelsea this weekend but that won’t be the case against Inter Milan.

Serge Aurier (RB)

Aurier will continue down the right flank with Kieran Trippier still out injured. The former PSG defender did well against Chelsea in the league.

Serge Aurier

Jan Vertonghen (CB)

Vertonghen was on the bench against Chelsea after marking his return from injury. He should get to start this game given Spurs’ shortage of centre-halves right now.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The Belgian will definitely keep his place at the back. He is their most consistent player at the moment.

Ben Davies (LB)

After making a slow start, the full-back has now looked good in the last few weeks. He will continue down the left flank.

Eric Dier (RCM)

Dier still needs a bit more improvement in his displays but he should keep his place for this game.

Harry Winks (LCM)

Winks should return to the squad for this game as he looks to spray the passes and keep the ball moving swiftly.

Lucas Moura (RAM)

The Brazilian was rested against Chelsea and will return to the line-up for this clash. He can cause all sorts of problems with his pace and trickery.

Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

Eriksen was brilliant against the Blues as he pulled the strings in the final third. Pochettino will want more of the same from the Dane in this must-win game.

Dele Alli (LAM)

Alli is always a menace for the defenders and will constantly trouble them at the back. He should keep his place for this game on the left-hand side of the advanced midfield.

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane scored a good goal against Chelsea but he may have been fortunate to see it go in. Things won’t be so easy against Inter Milan though.
