Tottenham XI Mauricio Pochettino should pick vs Brighton

Tottenham Hotspur will look to bounce back from their humiliating midweek result when they travel to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

Spurs were thrashed 7-2 by Bayern Munich on their own patch on Tuesday night, as their underwhelming start to the 2019/20 season continued.

While they did beat Southampton 2-1 last weekend with 10 men, it certainly won’t be an easy task to pick up another three points on the south coast – especially given you would expect their confidence to have been knocked, as well as the fact they are without an away win in the Premier League since January 20.

So what XI should Mauricio Pochettino select at the Amex?

Here is what we think the Argentine should do to deliver their first top flight win on the road in nine months…

Hugo Lloris keeps his place between the sticks, but there are two changes in the backline – one of which is enforced – from the heavy Champions League defeat.

Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen retain their spots at the heart of the defence, with the suspended Serge Aurier replaced by Moussa Sissoko – who filled in there so admirably against Southampton – while Ben Davies comes in for Danny Rose following the latter’s disappointing display on Tuesday.

Ahead of them, Eric Dier comes into the midfield alongside Harry Winks to provide the defence with some much needed protection following the seven goals conceded against the Bundesliga giants.

Reverting back to a 4-2-3-1, Tanguy Ndombele takes up the Christian Eriksen/Dele Alli role slightly further forward following an impressive attacking display in the opening 45 minutes against Bayern – his through-ball to Son Heung-min was particularly memorable – with Lucas Moura and the South Korean either side of the Frenchman.

Of course, talisman Harry Kane once again starts up top, and he will be keen to get the goals so Spurs pick up a confidence-boosting victory they look to desperately need.
