Jose Mourinho faces his first game as Tottenham manager against West Ham in a much-anticipated London derby this Saturday lunchtime. 

This fixture is usually a grudge match between two London clubs, but the inclusion of Jose Mourinho certainly gives it an extra edge.

After the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino last Tuesday, there has been much speculation surrounding Mourinho and the changes he is going to make to the Spurs side.

The North London men are currently sat in 14th position in the Premier League, following a disastrous start to the season, seeing just three Premier League wins.

We predict that Mourinho will bring back Toby Alderweireld into the fold at Spurs, as the Portuguese manager is a big fan of experienced players at the back.

Eric Dier could be a Tottenham regular under Mourinho.

Down the years, Mourinho has also been a big fan of a strong English base and there has been heavy speculation the Dier could become a regular under the new boss.

Due to West Ham’s poor form, we think Mourinho is going to go for the jugular with all three of Son Lucas Moura and Kane starring in attack at the London Stadium.

Predicted XI: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies, Dier, Winks, Eriksen, Son, Lucas Moura, Kane
