Tottenham’s Best XI vs Southampton
After losing against both Chelsea and Manchester United, Tottenham are slowly but steadily picking up form once again in their attempt to compete for the top honours this season.
This week, the Lilly whites will pay a visit to Saint Mary’s to play against Southampton, and despite what most of the people think, Pochettino isn’t really likely to make lots of changes, but we can expect few minor changes in the starting XI.
So, here is our best possible predicted lineup for the North London side this week.
Hugo Lloris: Lloris signed his contract extension early this week, and this means Spurs net will be very safe for at least 4 more years. It is not a secret that Lloris has saved Tottenham a lot of times this season. He is one of the best sweeper keepers in the world.
Kyle Walker: arguably the best English player in his position, Walker has confirmed this along this season. He played very well against Burnley, just like he’s been doing it throughout this campaign.
Toby Alderweireld: Toby missed a part of the season due to injuries, but since he came back, Tottenham are looking very solid in back once again. So, unless he gets injured again, Alderweireld will play every important Tottenham game this season.
Jan Vertonghen: Vertonghen’s case is similar to Alderweireld’s, as Jan is irremovable for Pochettino, and this next game won’t be the exception.
Danny Rose: Danny was definitely the best player on Pochettino’s side against Burnley, and there’s no doubt that Tottenham has the best attacking English full-backs at this moment in Walker and Rose.
Victor Wanyama: Wanyama started the season with doubts but now they’re gone. His presence in the midfield will give the required steel to counter Southampton’s pressing gameplay.
Harry Winks: However we’ve seen Eric Dier playing in midfield lately, it won’t be a surprise if Pochettino decides to use Winks instead. Kevin has shown that he has the talent and the desire to become a very important player for this side.
Christian Eriksen: Eriksen has had huge performances in recent games. He is the brain of the team. Tottenham clicks as a team when the Danish star has a good game, shows how important he is for the North London side.
Dele Alli: Dele is a great partner for both Eriksen and Harry Kane. Even though he is yet to reach the last season level of form, we can clearly see that he is getting his attacking touch back.
Moussa Sissoko: Sissoko has found his place in this team again. This will be a crucial period for the Euro finalist. If he fails to perform on a consistent level, he will be labelled as one of the transfer flops of the season, which may severely damage his confidence. Comeonnn Sisso, prove us wrong.
Harry Kane: The spearhead of this Tottenham team. The scoring machine will definitely start and he will try his best to end his goalless run in two league games against the Saints.
