How Tottenham Hotspur could line up against Manchester City

Sports Mole predicts how Tottenham Hotspur will line up for their Premier League clash with Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur are going in search of a fifth successive top-flight win when they play host to Manchester City on Monday evening.

The Lilywhites may have struggled in Europe, while off-field issues continue to plague them, but domestically they have made their best start to a Premier League campaign.

On the back of the 2-2 European draw with PSV Eindhoven, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino may have some big calls to make in terms of his team selection.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the home side could line up at Wembley Stadium.

Possible TOT XI vs. MCI

Out: Vincent Janssen (foot), Jan Vertonghen (hamstring)
Doubtful: Dele Alli (hamstring), Danny Rose (groin)

Tottenham could welcome back Alli and Rose for Monday night's showdown, with the duo missing the last month through a hamstring and groin injury respectively.

Pochettino is already well stocked in the attacking midfield department, though, where he can call upon three of Son Heung-min, Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura.

With two games in quick succession next week, Pochettino will have to rotate his squad, though this clash with Man City will take priority over the trip to West Ham United in the EFL Cup.

Kieran Trippier is therefore expected to start at right-back, with Serge Aurier providing back-up, while Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez will continue to link up in the heart of defence in Vertonghen's prolonged absence.
