Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Sheffield United


When selecting his first team tomorrow at home against Sheffield United, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino faces a couple interesting decisions. Now that summer signing Giovani Lo Celso has registered his first goal in a Spurs shirt this week, does that now warrant his first start in Premier League competition?

How about Son, who left the pitch last weekend in tears and his head in his hands, should be out there now that he’s available again, having his red card revoked? Does Eric Dier get in the team? Juan Foyth or Serge Aurier?


There are no right or wrong answers here, and feel free to post your own starting XI prediction in the comments section. Ours is below; along with all the other requisite team and game information.

I think the projectionists, prognosticators and bookies are misreading this match, sizing it up poorly. I really think the Blades got this one.
