Predicted Tottenham XI to start against Fulham in the Carabao Cup

Tottenham Hotspur set out on their Carabao Cup journey this evening, a little earlier than usual due to their lack of European football this season.

We believe that Guglielmo Vicario will continue between the sticks as Ange Postecoglou looks to get him as acclimatised to British football as possible.

At right-back, Emerson Royal comes in for Pedro Porro, and Ben Davies gives Destiny Udogie a rest at left-back following the youngster’s knock against Bournemouth.

We predict that Postecoglou will keep his pairing of Micky Van de Ven and Cristian Romero in order to allow them to forge a stronger partnership.

In midfield, James Maddison drops down to the bench to give some minutes to Giovani Lo Celso, while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp replace Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr.

Up front, Heung-min Son and Richarlison both start as Postecoglou will likely want to get them off the mark this season, while Manor Solomon comes in for Dejan Kulusevski who scored at the weekend.
