How we predict Tottenham to line-up against Crystal Palace

The right-back recovered from a knock to face Arsenal last weekend but did not play in Thursday’s Europa League win over Royal Antwerp.

Matt Doherty deputised, but Aurier should be fit. Meanwhile, Erik Lamela is on the comeback trail after an Achilles injury but is unlikely to be involved.

Giovani Lo Celso played the full 90 minutes in a man-of-the-match display against Antwerp, so could drop to the bench, with both Tanguy Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko coming off the bench and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg rested entirely.

Harry Kane and Heung-min Son are expected to start, with Steven Bergwijn currently Jose Mourinho’s favourite to complete the front three. Gareth Bale and Dele Alli will be hoping reduced minutes – or no minutes at all – could see them given another opportunity.

Expect Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld to come back in, with Sergio Reguilon taken off at half-time in midweek for tactical reasons.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg, Ndombele; Bergwijn, Kane, Son
