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

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

So it’s back to the Premier League this weekend after a flurry of international football and time for Tottenham to finally register a win – one can wish.

Mauricio Pochettino and his men will travel north to face Sunderland in a lunch-time kick-off on Sunday against the Black Cats who are also in dissaray.

Jermain Defoe will be looking to get one over his former employers, whilst we have finally received international clearance for Heung-Min Son to oficially become a Spurs player.

As for the team selection, if you were Spurs boss – what would your starting eleven be? Leave your team selections below.

Here’s what we would go with:-


Walker Alderweireld Vertonghen Rose

Dier Bentaleb

Chadli Alli Son


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. If Eriksen is fit he replaces Alli. Personally I would like to see Trippier instead of Walker and Mason instead of Benteleb as he gives us more going forward. Good to see no Lamela!!!!

    • And he isn’t quite as quick as young Yedlin!

      He has played fairly well to be fair to him. Even the OG against United was just unfortunate as most people wouldn’t have been able to get back across and try to cover/get a tackle in… But walker, like Townsend… Need some serious crossing practice if they want to be seriously considered for the first team…

      Otherwise their wastefulness should be confined to the early round cup and group stage games this season!

      I don’t write any player off… And think anyone can earn their place back… But only by upping their game!

  2. This is if Eriksen is fit.


    Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, rose;

    Alli, Dier;

    Son, Eriksen, Chadli;


    With subs of N’jie, Mason and maybe Pritchard, depending on how the game is going…

  3. My team: Lloris, Walker Dier Alderweireld Verthongen Rose, Eriksen Ali, Son Townsend, Kane. I would start with 3 at the back with 2 wing backs, 2 central Son and Townsend out wide and Kane up front, it will give us more movement,

  4. Lloris;




    son,kane (4-1-3-2)


    GK n defender same(4-3-2-1)




    if njie & eriksen not fit than chadli & alli respectively.

  5. Lloris

    Walker Alderweirld Vertonghen Rose

    Dier Dembele

    Njie Mason Chadli


    Putting mason in that position as he had a great game against everton made the pass for kanes one on one and had about 2 or 3 good chances, gets behond kane.

    • Your team I agree with.

      I don’t know why everyone keeps picking Chadli in their team. He is so damn lazy. He trots around so nonchalantly.

      If he doesn’t score he is anonymous
