Picking the Best Potential Tottenham Lineup to Face Watford on Monday

​Tottenham Hotspur face ​Watford at Wembley on Monday evening, as they look to put their FA Cup semi final exit behind them and push for a UEFA Champions League spot.

Following that defeat, a lot of focus around Spurs was on Mauricio Pochettino's future, after the manager briefly alluded to his position at the club in the post-match interview. 

But, for the time being, it appears that the Argentinian is staying put and is determined to finish the season on a high.

Here's who the manager could pick:


  • Lloris

Hugo Lloris' exclusion in the FA Cup semi final came as ​a surprise to many, but Michel Vorm was Spurs' cup competition keeper this campaign. So, for this league game, we expect Lloris to be back in his normal role.


  • Trippier
  • Sánchez
  • Vertonghen
  • Davies

In the full back positions, it is likely to be two British players in Kieran Trippier and Ben Davies. The latter remarkably transforming from an often rotated player into a first team regular this season, having put in some tremendous performances for the Spurs faithful.

In the centre of defence, it's likely that we will see Davinson Sánchez and Jan Vertonghen. The pair are arguably the strongest defence partnership possible for the team and Pochettino should be playing his best XI.


  • Dier
  • Dembélé
  • Lucas
  • Eriksen
  • Alli

Eric Dier and Mousa Dembélé ​will likely sit in the centre of midfield in the more defensive positions. Dembélé's future has caused much speculation in recent weeks, but we think he'll be played in this one. 

In front of them, it can be expected that Christian Eriksen will join up with Dele Alli and Lucas Moura. 

Brazilian Moura hasn't seen much game time but when he has, there's certainly been shades of a top talent. He is skilful and great with the ball at his feet, always looking to beat a man and move things forward.


  • Kane

Harry Kane has continued to take a lot of stick for his goal-claiming debacle. And, it might've affected him, with his recent performances not up to their usual high quality. 

But, we all know just how deadly he can be. Despite what's been thrown at him, whether it's the label of one-season wonder or even two, he's often always proved everyone wrong. 

And, I'm sure he'd like to do it again and add some more to his already impressive 26-goal season. So, he should start in this one.
