How Tottenham are expected to line-up against Fulham


ntonio Conte can be expected to rotate his squad for Saturday’s derby against Fulham, with Tottenham’s Champions League campaign getting under way at home to Marseille just four days later.

Cristian Romero and Rodrigo Bentancur could return to the side after missing the midweek draw at West Ham through injury, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg likely to be rested after picking up a knock in east London.

Ben Davies could also drop out, with Clement Lenglet making his full debut, while Matt Doherty and Ryan Sessegnon may come in at wing-back for Emerson Royal and Ivan Perisic.

Perhaps Conte’s biggest decision is whether to continue with the out-of-form Son Heung-min or try to play his forward into some form against the newly promoted side.

Summer signing Richarlison has earned a start with a series of lively displays from the bench, with either Son or Dejan Kulusevski likely to make way.

Tottenham predicted XI (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Doherty, Bissouma, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Richarlison, Kane, Son.
