Line Up: Spurs v West Ham – Gil drops down to bench

Spurs head coach Ange Postecoglou has named his side which will take to the field in this evening’s Premier League clash against West Ham United on a cold night in North London.

Tottenham are without a victory in their previous four league games (D1, L3), despite scoring the opening goal in all four of those matches and are at risk of losing three home league matches in a row for the first time since 2008, something they will want to avoid against their bitter rivals.

Postecoglou is boosted by thee return of Cristian Romero who slots straight back into the heart of the Tottenham defence after serving his three-match ban following his red card against Chelsea last month.
