Picking the Best Potential Tottenham Lineup to Face Swansea on Saturday

​Tottenham host Swansea on Saturday as Mauricio Pochettino's men look to notch their first home win in the league this season.


Here's how Spurs could line up.

Goalkeeper

  • Lloris

​Spurs' number one, Hugo Lloris, will reprise his starting role in goal.

Defence

  • Alderweireld

  • Sánchez

  • Vertonghen

​The central back three of Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and new-boy Davinson Sanchez will be Pochettino's go-to back line for the season. In the aforementioned trio, Spurs have arguably the best defence in the league, with new recruit Sanchez adding an extra degree of stability to an already impressive defence.

Midfield

  • Aurier

  • Dier

  • Eriksen

  • Sissoko

  • Davies

​A very defensive minded midfield with Serge Aurier and Ben Davies utilised as wing backs, thwarting any of Swansea's attacks down the wings, while also being able to offer an extra degree of width to Spurs' attacks. 


Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko start in Victor Wanyama's absence as deep-lying midfielders, starting attacks from the defensive third and sitting deep while the likes of Aurier, Davies and Christian Eriksen are given the freedom to contribute on the attack.

  • Kane

​With 47 goals between them in the league last season, the attacking threat that England duo Dele Alli and Harry Kane can offer cannot be understated. Both have notched two goals each in the league so far, with Kane adding to his overall goal tally with a brace against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday. 


When these two are firing on all cylinders, even the best defence in the world would have a torrid time keeping them from scoring.
