We believe that Fraser Forster will keep the Spurs gloves with Hugo Lloris still out injured, and it will also be an unchanged backline after the success against Crystal Palace.

Having kept a clean sheet as a trio, Clement Lenglet, Cristian Romero, and Emerson Royal start for Tottenham again, with Ben Davies and Pedro Porro playing as wing-backs.

Davies will be able to drop into a back four when Tottenham do not have the ball, before charging forward as a left-wing-back in attack.

In midfield, a lack of options sees Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp start again, although Pape Matar Sarr may consider himself unlucky not to be rotated in.

Dejan Kulusevski returns to the right side of the Spurs attack, with Richarlison dropping down to the bench. The in-form Harry Kane and Heung-min Son lead the line for Spurs as usual.
