Predicted Tottenham XI to take on Everton – Three changes from Postecoglou

Tottenham Hotspur face a trip to Merseyside this weekend as they take on Everton in the Premier League in search of another three points.

We believe that Guglielmo Vicario will remain between the sticks for the Lilywhites, as he has all season, with Fraser Forster continuing to deputise on the bench.

Despite his mistakes in mid-week, Destiny Udogie retains his place at left-back, while Pedro Porro continues to thrive on the right side of defence.

However, there is one change at the back as Micky Van de Ven is handed a rest to protect that recently recovered hamstring. Radu Dragusin comes in for his full Premier League debut.

In the centre of midfield, Pape Matar Sarr is back in time to start following Senegal’s early exit from the African Cup of Nations, replacing Rodrigo Bentancur who perhaps needs a rest after his long-term injuries.

Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg both played well against Brentford in their respective 45-minute stints, but it is the latter who starts against Everton.

James Maddison is trusted to start again in the creative role, but will surely only get 60 minutes or so following his cramp last time out.

Up front, Postecoglou keeps the same front three of Timo Werner, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski, although it would be no real surprise to see one rested in place of Brennan Johnson.
