Tottenham predicted lineup against Sporting: Davies and Kulusevski start

Tottenham Hotspur look set to return to action on Tuesday with the Champions League tie against Sporting – and here is our predicted lineup for the clash in Portugal.

Spurs saw their Premier League game with Manchester City postponed ahead of the weekend. And it is currently unclear whether they will face Leicester City on Saturday.

But their trip to Portugal looks set to go ahead. And Tottenham will be hoping to make it two wins from two at the start of the group-stages.

They did ultimately overcome Marseille in North London. But they made hard work of the Ligue 1 side. And Sporting opened their account with an emphatic 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

In fact, Sporting have won their last three in all competitions, scoring nine and conceding none. So they will be no pushovers for Tottenham.

Antonio Conte’s side can put one foot in the knockout stages with a win on Tuesday. And with the international break on the horizon, the Spurs boss could go incredibly strong with his team selection.

We have predicted a couple of changes from the side which beat Marseille. Firstly, Dejan Kulusevski comes in. But we have taken a bit of a gamble and said that it will be Son Heung-min who drops down to the bench.

It is no secret that the £22 million star has struggled. So the game may present Conte with a good opportunity to have a look at a front three comprising of Harry Kane, Kulusevski and Richarlison.

The other change comes at centre-back, with Ben Davies replacing Clement Lenglet. There is not necessarily a need to rest the Welshman. So he may perhaps come back in.

But other than that, it could largely be the side which beat Marseille on matchday one.
