Expected starting XI vs Manchester United

Tottenham will travel to Old Trafford on Monday night where they will be looking to make it three wins from three games in the Premier League.

A 3-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday made it six points from a possible six for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Pochettino surprised everyone by bringing back the back five with Toby Alderweireld making his long-awaited return to the starting XI.

However, a slow start to the second-half which saw Fulham draw level forced Pochettino into making a change in formation as Davinson Sanchez made way for Mousa Dembele as Spurs resorted back to a flat defensive four.

Although the change was the main catalyst for the victory, it would be expected Poch will rely on a back five again to hold out a Manchester United side in desperate need for the win after a turbulent week.

After such a dominant first-half performance, we would expect Pochettino to field the same starting XI which started on Saturday.

Also, we would all like to see Harry Winks continue to make a comeback to the side after his long-term injury.

With that, this is the team we expect to see start on Monday night.
