Opinion: Predicted Tottenham XI to take on Burnley

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

After a 2-1 defeat at the hands of his old club Manchester United in mid-week, Jose Mourinho will now have to bounce back for the first time in his Tottenham career.

Before Old Trafford, Jose had won his first three Spurs game, scoring ten goals in the process.

I believe that the defeat will bring with it some changes in the starting line-up:

Paulo Gazzaniga retains his spot in the first team, as do Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez. However, Danny Rose and Kyle Walker-Peters come in to replace Jan Vertonghen and Serge Aurier in the full-back positions.

After a woeful display in mid-week in the centre of midfield, Tanguy Ndombele comes in to change things up, partnering Eric Dier.

The front four remains unchanged, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Heung-min Son, and Lucas Moura trying their luck against the Burnley defence.

Moura may be a little lucky to retain his spot after his performance away to Man United.
