Predicted XI to start against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to put their Carabao Cup heartbreak behind them this weekend, as they aim to mount another charge for domestic silverware.

Spurs didn’t have to wait long for another chance at a cup run, as they take on Crystal Palace tomorrow in the FA Cup.

We believe that Gazzaniga will retain his cup position between the sticks as normal for this game.

Kieran Trippier is recalled at right back, with Kyle Walker-Peters covering at left back after Ben Davies’ injury and Danny Rose’s Chelsea exploits.

Alderweireld partners Juan Foyth in the centre of defence, with Dier and Winks remaining in midfield.

It is likely a little too early for Victor Wanyama’s return to the starting line up, and Pochettino surely won’t risk Sissoko.

Christian Eriksen sits just in front of the central two, with Lucas Moura and young Kazaiah Sterling beyond him.

This would be Sterling’s full debut for the club, supporting Fernando Llorente up top.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We can’t afford to lose any more ground in the top 4 race. So as much as a nice cup run would be to eventually come up short again, going off past seasons and this (?). We desperately need to prioritise the league, that being said I’d say we still have a decent 2nd string team that could beat them:


    Aurier Foyth Sanchez KWP

    Skipp Winks

    Lamela Sterling N’Koudou


  2. Surely Sanchez will play. It’s the right game to bring Victor back. Can’t understand why Hugo is not playing. We’d be in the League Cup Final if he’d played on Thursday
