Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Stoke City In The Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur travel to face Premier League strugglers Stoke City at the Bet365 Stadium this Saturday. Spurs come into this game on a high after beating defending champions Chelsea 3-1 in their previous encounter. A win in this game could see the club leapfrog Liverpool into the third spot and with a few matches left, every point matters for the club.
Their opponents for the weekend have not endured the greatest of seasons and are likely to get relegated but that should not stop them from looking to cause an upset.
Probable Tottenham XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Hugo Lloris (GK)
Lloris continues to be a force to reckon with for Spurs and he is likely to retain his spot.
Ben Davies (LB)
Davies has been reliable and solid on the left-hand side in terms of defending. He can also contribute to the attack.
Jan Vertonghen (CB)
Vertonghen has been one of Tottenham’s most influential players throughout the season and is a sure starter against Stoke.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
Sanchez has been an excellent partner for Vertonghen at the heart of the defence and he is expected to continue in that role.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
Trippier is expected to complete the defence by slotting in at right-back.
Mousa Dembele (CM)
Dembele has been an effective player for the club in the midfield area and he is likely to start against Stoke this weekend.
Eric Dier (DM)
Dier and Dembele have been through several ups and downs for Spurs this season and the Englishman is likely to partner him in this role for the upcoming match.
Heung-min Son (LW)
Son has been a standout performer for the club and has excelled in a variety of attacking roles. However, he is likely to be deployed in his preferred left-wing role.
Dele Alli (CAM)
Alli silenced the haters with a sensational display against Chelsea and the player is likely to find his name in the starting line-up for the game against Stoke as well.
Christian Eriksen (RW)
Eriksen’s influence from the right-wing area has been excellent and he is likely to start this Saturday.
Harry Kane (CF)
Kane is expected to lead the line for Spurs and there is no doubt that he will be looking to get on the scoresheet after a spell on the sidelines.
