Tottenham Hotspur have the opportunity to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 11 games on Sunday, after beating their north London rivals Arsenal last weekend.
Spurs’ last league defeat was a 1-0 loss at home to Everton way back on September 13 and since then, Jose Mourinho’s side have gone on an incredible run as some fans dare to dream about a first Premier League title.
Tottenham have taken advantage of the average early season form of some of the Premier League’s big hitters, such as Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal as they occupy the top spot of a wide open league.
The test for Mourinho’s men will now be the longevity of their success. If one or two injuries were to affect the thinner areas of the Spurs squad, it would be interesting to see how the side cope.
Here we predict Mourinho’s starting XI to face Roy Hodgson’s side…
Hugo Lloris will keep his place in the starting XI, as he does for all league games this season. Last week there was talk of Spurs’ number two, Joe Hart coming into the side, due to an injury sustained by the World Cup winner. But Lloris made the team and kept yet another clean sheet.
