Goalkeeper – Vicario
It is unlikely Fraser Forster or Hugo Lloris will take Guglielmo Vicario’s beginning place between the sticks. The Italian has had a good begin to life on the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium since becoming a member of from Empoli this summer season for £17.2million with two clear sheets in his first 4 video games – and appears at house as Spurs’ new No 1.
Defenders – Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie
Postecoglou is prone to stick together with his favoured again 4 of Pedro Porro, Cristian Romero, Micky van de Ven and Future Udogie towards Sheffield United. This backline has began three out of Spurs’ 4 opening Premier League fixtures and it is not anticipated to alter.
The one change that Postecoglou could ponder is the potential for switching Emerson Royal for Porro so as to add much more of an attacking risk down their right-hand facet.
Midfielders – Sarr, Bissouma, Maddison
Postecoglou can also be prone to follow a midfield trio of Pape Matar Sarr, Yves Bissouma and James Maddison. Maddison will play increased up the pitch whereas Sarr and Bissouma sit deep to permit the Englishman to play with full attacking freedom.
Rodrigo Bentacur returned to first-team coaching on Thursday for the primary time since rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his knee in February. Nevertheless, he was solely capable of be a part of the squad for a couple of warm-up drills and is not absolutely match simply but.
Forwards – Kulusevski, Solomon, Son
It is unlikely Richarlison will get a glance in given his poor current type, and so Heung-min Son, who scored a hat-trick towards Burnley final outing, is prone to begin down the center. In the meantime, Manor Solomon and Dejan Kulusevski are anticipated to assist him on the wings after operating riot at Turf Moor.
Predicted Spurs beginning XI in full: Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Sarr, Bissouma, Maddison; Kulusevski, Solomon, Son
