Tottenham Hotspur will face Everton in the FA Cup fifth-round at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.
With the game against Manchester City coming just three days later, Jose Mourinho must look to balance his side for this game.
Mourinho has confirmed today that he doesn’t think Serge Aurier will be playing tomorrow. Giovani Lo Celso remains out for much of this month, while the Portuguese boss has confirmed that Sergio Reguilon has no chance of playing.
Dele Alli trained on Monday with the team but Mourinho is not confident that he can start the game. However, the England international could get some minutes from the bench.
Harry Kane returned against West Brom and got his name on the scoresheet as well. Mourinho has confirmed today that he looked after the game, but at the same time, he could be tempted to rest him keeping in mind the big clash against City coming up.
The likes of Matt Doherty and Eric Dier are likely to return in place of Davinson Sanchez and Aurier in defence.
Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura both impressed against the Baggies, but Mourinho probably won’t risk them just days later after their first Premier League start in months.
Lamela, the £80k-per-week winger, is likely to be replaced by Steven Bergwijn while Harry Winks, 25, is set to come in midfield.
Predicted Tottenham starting line-up vs Everton: Lloris; Doherty, Alderweireld, Dier, Davies; Winks, Hojbjerg; Bergwijn, Ndombele; Son; Kane.
