Predicted Spurs XI, latest team and injury news vs Burnley

Tottenham Hotspur go to battle with relegation-threatened Burnley in a huge game at either end of the Premier League table this lunchtime.

Antonio Conte’s side will be buoyed by their emphatic north London derby victory over arch-rivals Arsenal on Thursday night, though they still remain one point behind the Gunners heading into the final two matches of the 2021/22 campaign.

Their quest for a place in next season’s Champions League could be seriously bolstered with a victory over the struggling Clarets but it’ll be no easy task with them fighting for their lives at the foot of the standings.

The Italian head coach is without several first-team stars, including first-choice defenders Cristian Romero and Sergio Reguilon, so it’ll be interesting to see if he sticks or twists with his winning lineup.

Here’s the XI we could see at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this afternoon…

Between the sticks, skipper Hugo Lloris is a shoo-in to remain, whilst the back-three heralding him should also remain unchanged, even despite a late withdrawal for full-back Ben Davies.

He’ll line up alongside Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez with Ryan Sessegnon continuing his duties on the left and Emerson Royal keeping his place on the right.

The Colombian international isn’t the obvious replacement for Romero, given the £27m-rated defender has previously been lambasted as a “liability” to the team.

In midfield, we should see the tandem of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur, with Oliver Skipp one of many on the treatment table and Harry Winks hugely out of favour.

The former Juventus powerhouse has been an instant hit in N17, even catching the eye of Romero, who lauded the £74k-per-week as a “big animal” on social media recently.

Meanwhile, up top, Conte is surely going to stick with Heung-min Son and Dejan Kulusevski after the pair were withdrawn early against Arsenal, and they’ll pair up with Harry Kane, who leads the line once more following his midweek brace.
