The team Spurs should pick to beat Watford

Tottenham Hotspur face Watford tomorrow night at Wembley, looking to renew their five point advantage over fifth-placed Chelsea.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are looking to bounce back from disappointing ‘home’ defeats to Manchester City and Manchester United.

Tottenham have lost their last two home games in all competitions, as many as they had in their previous 42 combined. They’ve not lost three in a row at home in the same season since November 2004 (a run of four).

Goals should be on the cards with Spurs having scored in each of their last 22 Premier League games – they last had a longer run of scoring in the top-flight in April 1987 (26 games).

If you were Mauricio Pochettino, what would your Spurs starting eleven be that faces Watford?  This is the team we would like to see start the match.

Lloris (C)

Trippier Alderweireld Vertonghen Davies

Dembele Wanyama

Lucas Dele Eriksen


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Personally I’d like to see us revert to a back 5 and use the pace of Aurier and Rose down the flanks. I don’t think these two have been successfully this season as they been mostly played in a back 4.

    Kane has been abject, personally I hope he doesn’t start tomorrow and we have a front 3 that can interchange (Like against Chelsea)
    Moura deserves to start and will cover Rose well when he attacks down the left, as will Lamela for Aurier.
    Both Moura and Lamela will move central too, meaning Dele can drift out wide to stretch play


    Alderweireld Sanchez Jan
    Aurier Eriksen Dembele Rose
    Lamela Dele Moura

  2. Lloris
    Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen
    Trippier, Eriksen, Dier, Dele, Davies
    Kane, Moura

    Everyone and their dog wants Toby in but no way will MP pick him. Would rather cut his nose to spite his face than have to play him again. Hope I’m wrong but our manager has become so pig headed, Kermit is his only fan !!!

  3. Lloris
    Sanchez Alderweireld Vertonghen
    Trippier Eriksen Dier Davies
    Moura Deli
    We need the win and Kane needs the goals

  4. @Phil: I thought Rose was unavailable through injury/fitness. Any problem with Son playing? I don’t see him mentioned here. I agree that Kane has not been himself recently and for me could have sat out the semi-final leaving him time to recover for league duty and his (unlikely) golden boot push. Would like to see Moura get a chance here against a team who concede a lot of goals. It goes without saying that we must win after lucky Chelsea squeak through again by the odd goal.
