Mauricio Pochettino to make 3 changes – Strongest 3-1-4-2 Tottenham XI to face Inter Milan

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

Tottenham were unable to get out of second gear against Liverpool who ultimately clinched a 2-1 win, ending their recent woes at Wembley. Spurs were largely outplayed in every aspect and manager Mauricio Pochettino will be aiming for a bigger performance when they travel to Italy to face Inter Milan in the Champions League.

Inter are currently languishing in 15th place after picking up just 4 points from their first 4 games of the season. They were beaten 1-0 by Parma this weekend and will be aiming to make amends soon.

Team News

Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli are still expected to be sidelined after the pair missed out on the Liverpool clash. Apart from long-term absentee Vincent Janssen, Spurs have no other injury concerns to worry about.

Pochettino can also opt to start with Heung-Min Son, who has returned from national duty. He is fit enough to start this game.

Probable Tottenham XI

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino 

Formation: 3-1-4-2

Michel Vorm (GK)

Despite conceding 2 against Liverpool, Vorm looked confident in goal and if not for the Dutchman, Liverpool would have scored more.

Toby Alderweireld (RCB)

The Belgian was not in full throttle against the Reds but a strong performance is expected from him in Europe.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez was rested for the game against Liverpool and should return to the fold for this one.

Jan Vertonghen (LCB)

There’s no way Vertonghen will sit out a game of this magnitude. He will complete the three-man backline.

Mousa Dembele (CDM)

Wijnaldum was no match for Dembele this weekend but the Belgian is one of the most dogged midfielders to come up against. He could terrorise Inter in the middle of the park.

Kieran Trippier (RWB)

Trippier was unable to exert his influence in the game against Liverpool. The England defender’s set-pieces and deliveries will be crucial in this game.

Christian Eriksen (RCM)

Eriksen’s range of passing and ability to create chances out of nothing will be a massive asset for Spurs in this game.

Erik Lamela (LCM)

Lamela was a second-half substitute and Spurs’ sole goalscorer against Liverpool. He should start this game.

Ben Davies (LWB)

Davies’ presence down the left flank was missed during the weekend. Rose didn’t seem to match his intensity and work rate.

Heung-Min Son (SS)

The South Korean should be deployed alongside Kane as the second striker.

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane will be the focal point for Spurs in this game and will be aiming to shut his critics with another goal fest.
