Guglielmo Vicario is an automatic pick between the sticks, with Tottenham lining up in a 4-2-3-1 formation in front of him. And the backline should feature Pedro Porro, Cristian Romero, Micky van de Ven, and Destiny Udogie.

As for the midfield unit, Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma have forged a solid partnership in the double pivot. The duo will aim to keep things tight in the middle of the park while initiating quick transitions. James Maddison will link up with those two midfielders, looking to release the three attackers, Richarlison, Dejan Kulusevski and Son Heung-min.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Vicario; Porro, Romero, van de Ven, Udogie; Sarr, Bissouma; Kulusevski, Maddison, Richarlison; Son
