Tottenham are looking to secure their first Premier League win of the Antonio Conte era when Leeds travel to north London on Sunday.
Conte’s tenure began in slightly underwhelming circumstances last time out with Spurs stuttering to a 0-0 draw against Everton.
With Tottenham six points off fourth spot, the Italian will be hoping for better from his side this weekend. Here is the starting XI he is most likely to select…
Hugo Lloris (GK) – Only seven goalkeepers have had more saves to make than Hugo Lloris this season, which says a lot about Spurs’ season so far.
Davinson Sanchez (CB) – With Cristian Romero injured on international duty, Davinson Sanchez should get his first Premier League start under Conte.
Eric Dier (CB) – Capable of the sublime and the ridiculous, Spurs fans will be hoping for more of the former from Dier on Sunday.
Ben Davies (CB) – Davies is done as a left-back in a back four, but he could feasibly be a useful asset as part of Conte’s new back three.
Emerson Royal (RWB) – One of the principal beneficiaries of Conte’s arrival in north London. Emerson loves to bomb forward and will be encouraged to do exactly that in this system.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) – Ever-present in the Spurs side since joining the club he should shake off an injury sustained in the international break to start.
Tanguy Ndombele (CM) – Oliver Skipp is suspended and Giovani Lo Celso is a doubt following the international break, leaving the Frenchman as one of his side’s only options. Not a bad option to have, though.
Sergio Reguilon (LWB) – Much like his colleague on the opposite flank, Reguilon will be ecstatic about his increased attacking freedom.
Lucas Moura (RW) – With several players breathing down his neck and the January transfer window imminent, Lucas needs to perform well over the coming weeks to keep his place in the side.
Harry Kane (ST) – After netting seven goals in the international break, could it finally be time for Kane to kick on? I bloody hope so, I’ve just put him in my FPL team.
Son Heung-min (LW) – Yet to properly get going this season, Spurs will be hoping some positive displays for South Korea can be the catalyst to ignite Son’s season.
