Tottenham host Brighton in the FA Cup fourth round this weekend, and Antonio Conte has a number of decisions to make about his team selection.
Spurs will be according to Oliver Skipp (groin) and Japhet Tanganga (knee) reportsbut Son Heung-min and Cristian Romero are back from injury retrenchments, while new contracts Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski are available for selection.
In sy press conference Conte confirmed on Friday that Bentancur and Kulusevski will not start with the rest of the team due to their lack of training sessions, so the two will be on the bench.
With all of the above in mind, we think Hugo Lloris will be protected by a back three from Romero, Eric Dier and Ben Davies, with Emerson Royal and Sergio Reguilon starting on the flanks.
The midfield partnership will likely consist of Harry Winks and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, while the top three should consist of Lucas Moura, Harry Kane and Son.
Hopefully at some point in the second half we will get to see at least a few minutes of the new boys.
Here’s our predicted XI to confront Brighton – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
