Pochettino to make 2 key changes- Strongest 3-4-2-1 Tottenham XI to face Watford

Predicted Tottenham line-up to face Watford in the Premier League

Spurs will be brimming with confidence after picking up an enthralling 3-0 win against Manchester United last weekend. Mauricio Pochettino’s men were not up to their best in the first half but showed their quality in the second.

The Lilywhites will be aiming to keep pace with the early leaders by claiming another win against Watford this weekend. The Hornets are also on par with Spurs on the table and come into the game in good form.

Team News

Barring Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen, Mauricio Pochettino can pick from a fully-fit squad this weekend.

Probable Tottenham Hotspur XI

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Formation: 3-4-1-2

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris was brilliant against Manchester United and made a couple of fine saves to keep the Red Devils at bay.

Hugo Lloris

Toby Alderweireld (RCB)

The Belgian was flawless against Manchester United and was arguably their best player on the night.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez was benched in the game against Manchester United. He should return this week.

Jan Vertonghen (LCB)

Vertonghen is the leader at the back and will play a crucial role this season as well.

Kieran Trippier (RWB)

Trippier’s set-pieces and deliveries are unrivaled. He is one of their main sources of supply in the final third.

Kieran Trippier

Christian Eriksen (RCM)

Eriksen is yet to pick up a goal this season. Nevertheless, the Dane is the showrunner for Tottenham in the middle of the park.

Eric Dier (LCM)

Dier covers the defence whenever required and charge to support the attack. He hasn’t started the season well but should come good in no time.

Ben Davies (LWB)

The wing-back will maraud down the flank and pose all sorts of problems to the Watford defence.

Dele Alli (CAM)

Alli had a lacklustre game against the Red Devils last week and scuppered a couple of chances. But he is still a vital member of Pochettino’s squad.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane has now shown that he is capable of scoring in August and will be aiming to up his tally this season.

Lucas Moura (ST)
