Tottenham get back to Premier League matters on Monday night when they host Everton.

Antonio Conte's men will need to bounce back hard from a hugely disappointing FA Cup exit in midweek, having lost 1-0 to an extra-time goal at Middlesbrough. Spurs have to find some consistency, having won three and lost four of their previous seven Premier League outings.

Victory away at Manchester City and the thrashing of Leeds at Elland Road in their last league fixture, however, should give them the basis to kick on, starting with the visit of a relegation-threatened Everton side. Here's how Spurs could line up.

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) - Hasn't missed a Premier League game this campaign and will skipper the side once more here.

Cristian Romero (CB) - Should be in line for a sixth consecutive start since returning from a hamstring injury.

Eric Dier (CB) - Only injury has kept him out of the side since Conte's arrival.

Ben Davies (CB) - The preferred option on the left of the back three, Davies is set for a tenth successive league start for this one.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Rodrigo Bentancur

Matt Doherty (RWB) - Put in a very good performance at Leeds last time out and, after getting a goal and an assist in that one, deserves to retain his place.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - Very much a key figure in the Spurs side, the Dane is set for a 24th Premier League appearance this term.

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) - Should come back into the fold following his ankle injury, having started three straight league games prior to his absence.

Ryan Sessegnon (LWB) - Has sometimes looked tentative in his Spurs career but, considering his showing at Elland Road, there's no questioning Conte's trust in him.

3. Forwards

Dejan Kulusevski (RF) - Lucas Moura is back in contention after recovering from injury, but Kulusevski has earned his place in the side.

Harry Kane (ST) - Has hit some top form recently, boasting six goals and two assists in his previous nine appearances across all competitions.

Son Heung-min (LF) -
Having just broken the Premier League goal partnership record with Kane, Son will inevitably start alongside his partner in crime.
