Winks starts, Mourinho favourite dropped – Possible Spurs XI vs Everton

    Tottenham face Everton on Monday night knowing anything but a win will all but end their chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

    Thursday’s defeat at Sheffield United seriously hurt Spurs’ push for a top-five finish, so Jose Mourinho has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection to ensure victory over Everton.

    Juan Foyth and Japhet Tanganga are out with season-ending injuries, so we don’t expect there to be any changes at the back – unless Mourinho was concerned enough by the defending at Bramall Lane to recall Toby Alderweireld.

    In midfield, we think Harry Winks will be re-introduced to provide more of a base alongside Moussa Sissoko, freeing up Giovani Lo Celso to get forward more quickly and often.

    Dele Alli has a hamstring problem, and although he hasn’t been ruled out it’s unlikely he will be risked. That means either Steven Bergwijn or Lucas Moura will join Son Heung-min and Harry Kane in the front three.

    We really hope it’s Bergwijn, who was substituted just 10 minutes into the second half against Sheffield United while Lucas struggled to prove his worth as a starter. Perhaps Mourinho will drop Lucas despite the Brazilian clearly being one of his manager’s favourites.

    Here’s our predicted XI to face Everton – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
