Predicted Tottenham XI to face Burnley – Oliver Skipp starts at left-back

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Burnley to N17 for their penultimate home match of the season this weekend, as they look to finally bounce back from those four straight defeats.

We believe that Guglielmo Vicario will start between the sticks for the Lilywhites, despite looking a little nervous in recent weeks, particularly from set-pieces.

Pedro Porro starts at right-back but there is a new name filling the left-back position – Oliver Skipp! After impressing against Mo Salah during a cameo there against Liverpool, the Spurs academy graduate nets the nod over the struggling Emerson Royal.

While Skipp may not have the height or experience in a back line, he will be more than familiar with those inverted midfield positions when he gets forward.

In midfield, Yves Bissouma serves as the pivot once more, with Pape Matar Sarr to his right and the creativity of James Maddison to his left, with the number 10 recalled to the starting XI.

Up front, Richarlison leads the line with Heung-min Son attacking from the left and Brennan Johnson from the right side.
