Tottenham Hotspur roster set to start against Sheffield United
Jose Mourinho takes his side from Tottenham Hotspur to Bramall Lane on Sunday afternoon to face Sheffield United in the Premier League.
The hosts enter the tie with their heads held high after finally claiming a league victory in the 18th moment they claimed this campaign, as they beat Newcastle 1-0 last time around.
Spurs are undefeated in six games in all competitions, but were recently held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by Fulham. Mourinho’s men also failed to win a league game away from home in their last away win at West Brom in early November.
Hoping to end their hoodoo away, here is the Spurs squad set to start against Sheffield United.
Hugo Lloris (GK) – The Frenchman has played in every league game so far, keeping six clean sheets in the process. Guaranteed to feature between the sticks against Sheffield United.
Serge Aurier (RB) – Came for Doherty in the last Premier League outing against Fulham and did pretty well. Waited to keep his place.
Toby Alderweireld (CB) – Missed Spurs’ last game but is likely to fire the starting XI in place of Davinson Sanchez.
Eric Dier (CB) – The England international has become an integral part of the Spurs system under Mourinho and has only missed one league game this season.
Sergio Reguilon (LB) – Provided phenomenal help for Tottenham’s goal against Fulham and had a good start to their career with Spurs overall. Should keep Ben Davies again.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) – The Dane has been exceptional since his summer arrival and has played more minutes than any other Spurs player (1530).
Moussa Sissoko (CM) – Mourinho is expected to go with his favorite XI against the Blades, which means Sissoko will return to the center of the park after playing midweek.
Tanguy Ndombele (AM) – Has reached another level this campaign and appears to be a threat in Spurs midfield, having completed more dribbles than any other Tottenham player with Harry Kane (40).
Lucas Moura (RW) – The Brazilian was not in midweek, but is expected to return to the starting XI. He has only scored one Premier League goal so far this season.
Harry Kane (ST) – Scored his 11th league goal of the season against the Cottagers to reach 22 goals so far. A guaranteed starter.
Son Heung-min (LW) – Had the misfortune not to score on Wednesday because Alphonse Areola beat him on several occasions. Will be looking to add to his 13 goals for the season.
