Predicted starting XI for Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge against West Ham

Tottenham Hotspur take on West Ham United away from home in the Premier League this weekend, with both sides struggling for form in the 2019/20 season.

While a London derby between the Hammers and the Lilywhites is always a standout fixture in the Premier League calendar, that rings even truer this year.

This weekend will be Mourinho’s first game as Tottenham manager, although it has not been confirmed as to whether he will be leading the team out yet.

Some clubs like to wait a week if the manager comes in at the last minute, but perhaps Levy and Spurs will be satisfied if Mourinho gets a couple of training sessions under his belt.

It’s a tough one to predict, but I believe Paulo Gazzaniga will start between the sticks, with Danny Rose, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, and Juan Foyth in defence.

A strong midfield three of Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, and Tanguy Ndombele line up behind Heung Min Son, Harry Kane, and Dele Alli up top. Lo Celso is rested after his trips with Argentina.
