The Spurs XI to beat Hull City

Tottenham’s season seems to have taken a turn for the worse after Mauricio Pochettino’s side slumped to their second defeat in three Premier League games against Manchester United at the weekend.

The only goal of the game came from United’s in-form summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who ran in behind the Spurs defence before slamming the ball into the roof of the net past Hugo Lloris.

After remaining undefeated in the league up until their defeat at Chelsea the previous weekend, Spurs’ title challenge has now turned into a contest for the top four, unless they can rediscover their form ahead of Christmas and into the new year.

Next up for the Lilywhites is Hull, as they welcome the Tigers to White Hart Lane on Wednesday night in search of a vital three points.

Hull themselves has proven a difficult side to beat recently, drawing two and winning one of the last five, so while many expect three points for the hosts, it certainly won’t be a walk in the park.

This is the starting XI Mauricio Pochettino must pick to claim victory over Hull.
