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

Middlesbrough is the destination tomorrow for Mauricio Pochettino’s Harry Kane-less  side as they look to continue their unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign.

An encouraging 5-0 win for Pochettino’s young players against Gillingham has gone a long way to instil extra confidence in the likes of Harry Winks and Marcus Edwards – however, neither are expected to feature at the Riverside Stadium.

The likes of Mousa Dembele, Heung-min Son and Toby Alderweireld (among others) who were rested in midweek are expected to come back into the starting line up.

If you were Mauricio Pochettino, what would your Spurs starting line-up be?  Leave your team selection by posting a comment below.

Here’s what we have come up with:-


Walker Alderweireld Vertonghen Rose

Dier Wanyama

Alli Eriksen Son


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I know with Dier and Wanyama we are a stronger outfit, and it is a good idea when playing away from home. However I find it really hard to leave Lamela out of our starting line up. Likewise SON has been brilliant this season. I would go Lloris, Walker, Rose (if available) Toby, Jan, Dier, Dele, Lamela, Erikson, SON, Janssen

  2. I'd hold back Rose Dier and Dembele for Tuesday and use Sissoko v Middlesboro as he and Sonny have the pace to hurt them on the break.

    Walker Alderweirald Vertonghen Davies
    Wanyama Dele
    Sissoko, Eriksen, Son
