Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI: We predict Spurs manager Jose Mourinho’s starting XI for Sunday’s London derby against West Ham United.
After losing their opening match at home against Everton, Tottenham have kick started their season with two big wins and a draw in their last three matches.
After thrashing Southampton 5-2 at St Mary’s, Mourinho’s men went goal-crazy on the road once again as they defeated Manchester United 6-1 last time out.
However, a draw at home against Newcastle between those standout results means that Spurs are still searching for their first Premier League victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season.
Visiting them on Sunday are London rivals West Ham United who will be entering the game full of confidence after impressive back-to-back victories against Wolves and Leicester respectively.
With the players having returned from an international break and the Europa League group stage kicking off on Thursday, Mourinho will have to utilise his squad in order to keep the performances at the level shown at Old Trafford.
So which players will the Portuguese boss task with the challenge of beating the Hammers?
Here we predict Mourinho’s XI…
Goalkeeper: Despite Joe Hart’s arrival, Hugo Lloris is the undisputed number 1 and the club captain. The Frenchman will therefore start once again in the Premier League and will be hoping to claim his first clean sheet of the season on what will be his 332nd appearances for the club.
