Tottenham XI vs Nottingham Forest: Starting lineup and confirmed team news

New signings Richarlison and Yves Bissouma have to wait for their first starts again as they are selected on the bench once more at the City Ground.

Antonio Conte has competition for places at wing-back, with Emerson Royal holding off pressure from Matt Doherty on the right and Ryan Sessegnon behind Ivan Perisic, who made his first start in last weekend’s 1-0 win over Wolves.

Conte is still without Cristian Romero (adductor), with Davinson Sanchez deputising on the right of the back three again, while Oliver Skipp (heel) remains sidelined.

The pair are both set to resume training with the squad at the start of next week, raising the possibility they could be fit to face West Ham on Wednesday.

Bryan Gil and Lucas Moura sat out training on Friday and aren’t involved today, with former Nottingham Forest star Djed Spence and Pape Matar Sarr both coming onto the bench.

Tottenham starting XI (3-4-3): Lloris, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic, Kulusevski, Son, Kane

Subs: Doherty, Richarlison, Sessegnon, Forster, Spence, Tanganga, Sarr, Lenglet, Bissouma
