Predicted Spurs XI to face Middlesbrough in the FA Cup replay

Tottenham Hotspur take on Middlesbrough in the FA Cup third-round replay this week, as they look to book a place against Southampton in the next stage.

Spurs and Boro played out a 1-1 draw at the Riverside earlier this month, forcing a replay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday night.

I believe that Gazzaniga will retain his place in goal, as will Davinson Sanchez, Japhet Tanganga, and Serge Aurier in defence. Jan Vertonghen comes in to replace Danny Rose.

Harry Winks lines up in central midfield for the second match in a row, partnered again by  Christian Eriksen. Dele Alli lines up just in front, playing a more attacking role than we have seen recently.

Erik Lamela and Heung Min Son occupy the wings, while Lucas Moura plays up front, able to interchange with an advancing Dele Alli in attack. Lo Celso makes the bench again.

What changes would you make to the team?
