Predicted Spurs starting XI vs Burnley

Spurs will be looking to build on their impressive performance in the Europa League in midweek with a win against Burnley at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Jose Mourinho’s side have been poor form in the Premier League of late and have dropped to 9th into the top-flight as a result, which has led to some speculation about the Portuguese manager’s future with the North London club.

However, he can ease those fears with a win against Sean Dyche’s side on Sunday, and having beaten the same opposition 5-0 at home last season, he will be confident that his players can earn the three points.

Here’s how Football FanCast expects Mourinho to line his side up on Sunday, with eight changes from the team that beat Wolfsberger 4-0 on Wednesday…

Hugo Lloris is likely to come back in for Joe Hart in between the sticks, although the Frenchman has been suspect on a few occasions this season.

Do you think Alli will start?

Yes

There are two changes in defence, as Davinson Sanchez replaces Eric Dier to partner Toby Alderweireld at centre-back, whilst Sergio Reguilon provides more of an attacking threat than Ben Davies at left-back.

Tanguy Ndombele and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are both likely to return to the side in midfield, meaning Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks drop to the bench.

Dele Alli deserves to keep his place after his excellent performance in midweek, whilst Gareth Bale also earns a start after some promising recent displays.

Okay, we'll start with an easy one... How much did Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg cost last summer?

Unsurprisingly, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son start against the Clarets, although Carlos Vinicius is perhaps unlucky to be dropped after his brace on Wednesday.

And, in other news… Spurs can sign ideal Ndombele partner in Nicolo Barella
