Tottenham FC news: Mauricio Pochettino expected 4-2-3-1 v AFC Bournemouth

Tottenham Hotspurs 0 Comment 28

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is expected to make two changes to his side that face Bournemouth in the lunchtime kick off this Saturday.

In their last match, the Spurs thrashed Watford 4-0 as Son Heung-min scored a brace, while Eric Dier and Dele Alli also found the net.

England international Harry Kane made his return from injury to the team as a late substitute in the game, so Kane is expected to start ahead of Vincent Janssen versus Eddie Howe’s side.

Also, Victor Wanyam has also returned from a lay-off, and is likely to replace Moussa Dembele in the centre of the park.

Other than the duo, Kane and Wanyama is the only expected changes to be made in the team and Pochettino is expected to line up same he used for his last match.

Hugo Lloris will almost definitely remain between the sticks, while Ben Davies, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are likely to remain in defence.

Kyle Walker is also available to start, but it is expected that Kieron Trippier will retain his starting spot after a fine performance against Watford where he provided an assist.

Dier has two goals in two games now so his likely to start against the Cherries.

Son Heung-min, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen have all been in red-hot form in recent weeks, and it is assumed they will line up in a fluid trio behind Kane.

A win for Spurs will see them cut the gap to league leaders Chelsea to just four points, although it may be for just a day, as Antonio Conte’s men face Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

A win for Bournemouth will lift them away from the drop zone and, if results go their way, they could go to 10th.

In the latest Tottenham news, reports are claiming Dion Dublin reveals why Vincent Janssen has flopped at Spurs.
