Tottenham predicted lineup vs West Ham today - Premier League

  • Tottenham returned to winning ways on Saturday as they beat Luton Town 2-1
  • Spurs have few injury concerns for the run-in
  • Micky van de Ven likely to return to starting XI against West Ham

Despite consistently failing to turn up for the opening 45 minutes of contests, Tottenham have often found ways of producing the desired result.

A turnaround victory over Luton Town on Saturday meant they kept pace with fourth-place Aston Villa while extending their lead over Manchester United in sixth. With the Premier League destined to have five Champions League participants in 2023/24, Ange Postecoglou is on track to return the Lilywhites to Europe's premier club competition ahead of schedule.

As he prepares for the run-in, Postecoglou has close to a full complement of players to choose from with Spurs getting healthier on the injury front after the March break.

They're next in action on Tuesday night away at West Ham and here's what their starting lineup could be for the London derby.

GK: Guglielmo Vicario - The Italian doesn't get much protection from Postecoglou's gung-ho approach, but Vicario has enjoyed a superb season and will remain between the sticks on Tuesday night.

RB: Pedro Porro - A model of consistency this term, Porro's playmaking abilities may come in handy against what's poised to be a deep West Ham backline.

CB: Cristian Romero - The Argentine's header in the reverse fixture was in vain as the Hammers overturned a 1-0 deficit to win 2-1 in N17 on 7 December.

CB: Micky van de Ven - The Dutchman nursed a knee injury during the break and wasn't risked on Saturday with Postecoglou hoping to have Van de Ven back for this game. His recovery speed will be crucial in denying the Hammers in transition.

LB: Destiny Udogie - Udogie certainly didn't produce his finest display in the reverse fixture, so he'll be keen to impress at London Stadium. He'll relish the battle with Jarrod Bowen.

CM: Rodrigo Bentancur - The Yves Bissouma from the opening ten games of the season has faded away miserably and Postecoglou should make a change at the base of midfield. Bentancur has been playing with a broken toe in recent weeks but was excellent off the bench against Luton.

CM: Pape Matar Sarr - A lynchpin in Spurs' midfield, Sarr's legs will be key in shunning the Hammers in midweek.

CM: James Maddison - The English creator hasn't quite fired on all cylinders since returning from an ankle injury and Giovani Lo Celso helped change the game at the weekend. However, Maddison's place in the team isn't under threat just yet.

RW: Brennan Johnson - The spritely wide man was imperious for 45 minutes on Saturday, helping Spurs overturn their 1-0 deficit. With Dejan Kulusevski struggling, Johnson has to start.

ST: Son Heung-min - Son recorded his 15th Premier League goal of the season against Luton. He won't appreciate this quick turnaround having played plenty over the international break.

LW: Timo Werner - The German has serious cult hero potential in N17. Werner may not be clinical, but the boy makes things happen.
