Manager Antonio Conte has largely stuck with the same formula and players since mid-February, only very occasionally making tweaks, and he will surely pick the same side that started Saturday’s hard-earned 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield for the biggest game of the club’s season.
Only an injury between now and the derby would force Conte’s hand, although he will be wary of fatigue after a gruelling 90 minutes against Liverpool and with Sunday’s match against Burnley a 12pm kick-off.
Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura, Davinson Sanchez and Harry Winks can therefore be hopeful of minutes from the bench, although their chances of starting are remote.
Sergio Reguilon (groin), Matt Doherty (knee), Japhet Tanganga (knee) and Oliver Skipp (pelvis) are all sidelined for the rest of the campaign. Spurs have no fresh injury concerns, however.
Predicted Tottenham XI (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Kulusevski, Son, Kane.
Injured: Skipp, Tanganga, Doherty
