Tottenham take on Liverpool in the Champions League final in Madrid in under two weeks, with both clubs looking to be crowned the Champions of Europe.

Both sides also deserve the trophy above all others after their sensational semi-final comebacks against Ajax and Barcelona.

But how will Spurs line up against the Reds on June 1, will Harry Kane make the team, what about Harry Winks?

Here is our predicted starting XI for the match:

We believe that Hugo Lloris will retain his spot between the sticks, with a flat back four of Danny Rose, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, and Kieran Trippier.

Harry Winks comes back into the side after recovering from surgery to fill the defensive midfield spot.

Moussa Sissoko will be utilised on the right to help cover Kieran Trippier, while Eriksen can help cover the left and drift infield with the ball at his feet.

Dele Alli slots in as a centre forward/attacking midfielder, just behind Lucas Moura and Heung Min Son on the wings.

This will allow Alli to get on the ball in forward positions and slot passes in behind, as he did against Ajax in the semis.

We have chosen to leave Kane on the bench as an impact substitute for the second half, seeing as the striker has just come back from injury, and Moura is in such good form.

What do you think? Would you change anything?

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. If winks is fit then defo in. Trippier is done…Aurier in better defensive positioning.

    Alderweireld has to pick up VvD from corners.
