Stoke City has been a happy hunting ground for Tottenham Hotspur in recent seasons, having won there on six occasions in the Premier League era.

After the highs of beating Chelsea last weekend, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for his Spurs squad to maintain their unbeaten Premier League record in 2018 against Paul Lambert’s strugglers.

In terms of team news, only Harry Winks is sidelined through injury, while it remains to be seen whether Toby Alderweireld will be included in the matchday squad among rumours that he has been frozen out by Poch over his contract demands.

If you were Spurs boss, what would your starting eleven be for the match?  Here’s the team we would like to see:-

Lloris (C)

Trippier Vertonghen Sanchez Davies

Dier Dembele

Eriksen Dele Lucas


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. If Kane is fit, he plays. Give Sonny a break, he’ll be needed again, no doubt. And I’d have Lloris on the bench, too many mistakes now. Vorm was good at Swansea and quite honestly, this lot at Stoke look totally shot so a good game for him to play. I’d go for :
    Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies
    Dier Dembele
    Lucas, Eriksen, Alli
