Spurs XI vs Burnley predicted: Alderweireld and Aurier to start, Ndombele returns
Tottenham return to Premier League action when they travel to Burnley on Monday night.
Jose Mourinho’s side were comfortable winners in their Europa League Group J opener against Austrian outfit LASK on Thursday and will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to ten matches since losing to Everton on the opening day.
Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga missed both the West Ham and LASK games through injury and once again remain doubtful for the trip to Turf Moor.
We think that Serge Aurier and Toby Alderweireld will return to the starting XI – meaning an unchanged back-four from last Sunday, despite the late collapse.
In midfield, it’s likely to be a familiar trio the inform Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele, who was rested entirely in midweek.
Heung Min Son and Harry Kane will obviously be recalled – with the final attacking place going to Lucas Moura after his impressive showing against LASK, in which he scored on his third consecutive start for Tottenham.
Here’s the side that we think Mourinho will go with against the Clarets.
Predicted XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Regulion, Sissoko, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Son, Lucas, Kane.
