Spurs Web Opinion:
No surprise for Kane. Winks has played well this season and deserves his place. Rose has been decent at best, but his experience is valuable. Dier isn’t shocking, as other than the start versus Colchester City, he has just one substitute appearance on the year. Dele is the most interesting choice. He has played on and off for Tottenham, but has contributed little in terms of end product.
