You’re the Boss: Pick your Spurs team vs Man Utd

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

So it returns.  Saturday sees the return of the Premier League and the expectation of Tottenham fans to get a result at Old Trafford seems to be modest.

Manchester United have been splashing the cash during the summer like it has been going out of fashion by bringing in Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Memphis Depay, Sergio Romero Matteo Darmian whilst managing to hold onto David De Gea, which has been good news for Tottenham’s hopes of keeping Hugo Lloris at the Lane.

So who should feature for Tottenham in the Premier League opener?  Below we have selected our team that we would like to see play.  Leave your own team selections and comments below.


Walker Vertonghen Alderweireld Rose

Bentaleb Alli

Chadli Eriksen Lamela


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Nearly identical for me… But trippier was more impressive that walker in pre-season for me.

    And vertonghen is better LCB closer to Rose.


    Trippier, Alderweireld, vertonghen, Rose;

    Alli, Bentaleb;

    Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli;


  2. Agree with most but don't think Lamela has done anything special pre-season and would try and bring ion dembele to add a bit more muscle!

  3. Vorm
    Trippier, Alderwireld, Verthongen, Rose
    Bentaleb, Dembele
    Carrol, Lamela, Chadli

    bench.. Dier, Eriksen, Soldado, Davies, Walker, Vimmer, McGee.

  4. Trippier had a better pre-season that Walker and looks VERY good although I expect Walker to start. I think we will start with Alderweild & Vertonghen and have been surprised how well Ben Davies has done pre-season and think he is better defensively than Danny but expect Rose to start. I would probably start with Mason & Bentaleb as the holding midfielders but do think that Eric Dier should be perfect for that role. Chadli and Eriksen would be definite starters for me and I would prefer to see Trippier or Yeldin or Alli start ahead of Lamela and of course Kane up front. I would love for us to buy Berahino and Charlie Austin as both have proven they can score goals in this league with relatively poor service and would also love to see Timo join us but right now would be happy to see at least one join us and to see Adebayor and Soldado gone and sad to say that I think Lennon and possibly Townsend should go as well to give more opportunities to the very exciting youngsters we have coming through. COYS.
