Sanchez and Bergwijn to start, Mourinho favourite dropped – Possible Spurs XI vs Bournemouth –


    Tottenham travel to strugglers Bournemouth on Thursday for the second of three crucial Premier League matches this week.

    Jose Mourinho’s side picked up a much-needed three points against Everton on Monday and will be looking to climb above rivals Arsenal ahead of Sunday’s north London derby with what would be only their fourth away league victory of the campaign and first since February.

    However, the Portuguese has some defensive problems – with Japhet Tanganga (back), Juan Foyth (knee) and now Eric Dier (suspended), who earlier today was handed a four-match ban for jumping into the crowd against Norwich City in March, all unavailable for Spurs.

    Dele Alli also remains sidelined with the same hamstring injured that saw him miss the 1-0 win over the Toffees.

    Dier’s absence means we expect to see one defensive change, with Davinson Sanchez, who was dropped for the Everton game, starting alongside Toby Alderweireld.

    In midfield, Moussa Sissoko could be given his first rest since the restart – with Giovani Lo Celso likely to partner Harry Winks, meaning Tanguy Ndombele is once more expected to be named amongst the substitutes.

    Moving forward, with Sunday’s game against Arsenal in mind, Mourinho could recall Steven Bergwijn in place of Lucas Moura – and also give a first start in four matches to Erik Lamela, who’ll join the familiar faces in Heung Min Son and Harry Kane in the front-four.

    Here’s our predicted XI to face Bournemouth: Lloris, Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies, Winks, Lo Celso, Son, Lamela, Bergwijn, Kane.
