Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Tottenham Hotspur could line up for Sunday's North London derby with Arsenal in the Premier League.
Since this article was published, the derby has been called off due to a lack of players in the Arsenal squad. A new date for the game will be confirmed in due course.
Tottenham Hotspur will be without a few key names for Sunday's North London derby with Arsenal in the Premier League.
Antonio Conte is already coping with the absences of Son Heung-min and Cristian Romero, and Eric Dier will not recover from a muscular problem in time to feature either.
It remains to be seen if Sergio Reguilon will be passed fit to start on the left, but Conte is hopeful of having Steven Bergwijn back on the substitutes' bench.
Pierluigi Gollini was at fault for Chelsea's winner in midweek and will certainly make way for Hugo Lloris here, with Japhet Tanganga earning another start in defence alongside Ben Davies and Davinson Sanchez.
Emerson Royal will be fit to take his place on the right-hand side, but it would not be surprising to see Ryan Sessegnon feature on the opposite flank ahead of the uncertain Reguilon and the wantaway Matt Doherty.
Giovani Lo Celso earned an unexpected start in the EFL Cup semi-final second leg, but Oliver Skipp could be reintroduced alongside Harry Winks and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to beef up the midfield.
With Bergwijn not yet ready to return to the starting lineup, Harry Kane and Lucas Moura are set to continue their partnership in the final third.
Tottenham possible starting lineup: Lloris; Tanganga, Sanchez, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Winks, Sessegnon; Lucas, Kane
