You’re the Boss: Pick your Tottenham team vs Stoke

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Dom Le Roy

Attentions turn to White Hart Lane tomorrow for the first home match of the new Premier League season. The visitors are Stoke City who did the double over us last term.

November’s 2-1 defeat to Stoke at the Lane was one of the low points and it’s a chance for Pochettino and co to get revenge against the Potters who have been very active during the transfer window after Mark Hughes this summer brought in the likes of Marco van Ginkel, Ibrahim Afellay and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Pochettino has already reported that Danny Rose, Andros Townsend, Alex Pritchard and Hugo Lloris are all back from injury and will be looking to put the defeat to Manchester United behind us.

If you were the Tottenham boss, what would your starting eleven be? Leave your selections by posting your comment below.

Here’s what we would go with:-


Trippier Vertonghen Alderwiereld Rose

Bentaleb Alli

Chadli Dembele Eriksen


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. For me, Walker starts after a strong performance last week, I'd go with:
    Lloris/Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose/Bentaleb, Mason, Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli/Kane – bring on Alli/Pritchard/possibly N'Jie if we need to attack, Dier for reinforcement

    • I think that's the obvious choice. Walker can't be dropped after being MOM against Man Utd, and I expect that to be the line-up Poch chooses with some of the youngsters available to come on for impact. Will be tricky for Poch to decide between some of these for the bench – Lamela, Townsend, Pritchard. If N'Jie signs who out of those three does he leave out of the squad? As much as it pains to say it, I'd leave Lamela out, as he has proved to be ineffective time after time. Having said that I would love him to prove me wrong this season!

      • what is wrong with you people! bentaleb is a liability but he is only young and can only improve! Walker on the other hand only gets worse. Bentaleb gave the ball away , but the rest was all walkers fault ! totally out of position and had so much ground to make up he could only fail! saying that he still messed up going in with totally the wrong foot and knocking it in! why do you think we got Trippier ? he aint no back up mate!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • strong performance? you need to learn the game mate, he was a total shambles. bombing forward without a thought about his position. if we want to ever do well this clown needs to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Get rid of Bentaleb, he's a liability. Always gives the ball away in key areas, against Man U wasn't the 1st time, or 2nd come to that.

  3. Lloris

    Trippier Vertonghen Alderwiereld Rose

    Bentaleb Alli

    Chadli Dembele Eriksen


    I will make a chose to all of them playing toghter as a team improving for there levels be apart of felde like kane upfront with lond side him the new player we brought for 15.m from lyion will so play as siker
