Buoyed by their 5-0 thrashing of Everton, Tottenham travel to face Man Utd at Old Trafford in a crucial top four battle in the Premier League.

Spurs responded to their disappointing FA Cup exit to Championship outfit Middlesbrough by dismantling the sorry Toffees, with Harry Kane moving clear of Thierry Henry in the all-time Premier League goalscoring charts with his brace.

The victory moved Tottenham to within three points of the Champions League positions and Conte will hope the victory is the beginning of a sustained run of results for the Lilywhites.

Here's how Conte could line his side up this weekend.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) - Chucked in a few goals against Wolves last month, although his performances since have been solid.

Cristian Romero (CB) - Has been booked in half of his Premier League appearances in 2022.

Eric Dier (CB) - His return from injury has been key for Spurs, which is a remarkable statement when you consider his inconsistent form over the last few years.

Ben Davies (CB) - Offers an excellent range of passes from defence given his history as a conventional left back.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Matt Doherty (RWB) - Grabbed a pair of assists last time out against Everton, highlighting his improvement in recent weeks.

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) - Very comfortable carrying the ball from deep, which is perfectly suited to Conte's style of play.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - Becoming more attuned to Conte's drilled patterns of play, forming a dynamic partnership with Bentancur.

Sergio Reguilon (LWB) - Could be a chance to impress for the Spaniard with Ryan Sessegnon an injury doubt.

3. Forwards

Dejan Kulusevski (RW) - His pair of assists in the 5-0 rout of Everton took him to five goal contributions in just six starts for Spurs.

Harry Kane (ST) - Very much looks to have rediscovered his hunger under Conte.

Son Heung-min (LW) - Four goal contributions in his last five starts, underlining his importance to Spurs.
