You’re the Boss: Pick your Spurs team vs Burnley

So it’s time to turn out attentions to the FA Cup as we travel to Burnley with a place in the fourth round up for grabs.

It will be interesting to see what team Mauricio Pochettino decides to put out considering our recent good form and if he is looking for an extended run in this cup competition.

In terms of team news, Nabil Bentaleb is on international duty, while Ryan Mason and Erik Lamela are doubts. There is no doubt we have to have one eye on our Premier League visit to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

If you were Tottenham boss, what would your Tottenham team be to face Burnley? Leave your comments below.

Here’s what we have come up with:-


Naughton Kaboul Vertonghen Rose

Stambouli Capoue

Lennon Dembele Townsend


Have something to tell us about this article?


    • Come on lads we want to win everything and keep the winning mentality rolling:

      Vorm. Chirichres Fazio vertonghen Davies stambouli dembele Townsend Lennon soldado Paulinho. Bench: walker Fazio rose Kane eriksen lloris

  1. Yeah No Kane, Verts or Dembele as need them for upcoming prem games. Dier next to Kaboul, give Kane a rest and play Soldado up front and Paulinho instead of Dembele.

  2. I'd go along with most of that but not Kane and Vertonghen – both have had a busy fortnight and could do with a few days off ahead of the Palace match. Would start Soldado and Chiriches instead personally – maybe have Kane and Chadli on the bench as striking options if needed, but ideally I'd leave Kane in London.

    I want to win this game as I like to see us take all competitions seriously but with a CC two-legged semi final coming up and with a winnable tie in the Europa, if we were to go out it might be a blessing in disguise. The very last thing we want is a draw and a replay.

  3. Agree with the writers selection, except Davies for Rose and Soldado for Kane. Kane needs to be fresh for the game vs. Palace. Some may say that he is young and would recover in time, but as a former sportsman I fully appreciate that muscles get tired without even realizing and very prone to injury.

  4. Vorm
    Naughton – Dier – Chiriches – Davies
    Capoue – Stambouli
    Lennon – Paulinho – Townsend

    The obvious faces (Hugo, Kyle, Jan, Christian, Harry) are likely to be dropped, so the team pretty much picks itself. Wouldn't mind seeing the likes of Naughton, Dier, Capoue, Paulinho and Adebayor before they're ostracised – we either sell them or play them, in my eye. We can't leave them out in cup fixtures unless he wants to have two groups divided.

  5. Not entirely sure of the starting 11 but I would rest as many of the players who played over the Christmas period as possible. Give them more rest before the Palace game, and play who ever is left

  6. Vorm
    Lennon Paulinho…..Dembele

    Subs: Manny, Brad and 5 boys from the Under 21s !!!

  7. Vorm
    Yedlin, Kaboul, Dier, Rose
    Lennon. Dembele, Capoue, Lamela
    Soldado, Adebayor
    Bench: Lloris, Naughton, Vertonghen, Paulinho, Eriksen, Townsend, Kane
