Tottenham predicted lineup: Gil and Ndombele to star after Carabao Cup performances

Ndombele and Gil should start for Tottenham vs Arsenal.

The flair duo were both exceptional vs Wolves in midweek and they’re expected to start vs Arsenal.

The predicted lineup we’ve gone with makes three changes from the Lilywhites last Premier League outing vs Chelsea.

That game finished 3-0 owing to a second half collapse.

This was a second consecutive 3-0 Premier League defeat.

However, Arsenal provide much less of a threat than the Blues.

We expect to see Nuno make just one change from the defensive line that he opted for last Sunday.

We predict a change at right-back, with Emerson Royal coming out for Japhet Tanganga as the latter returns from suspension.

Despite losing 3-0, Eric Dier and Cristian Romero paired up well last week in defence whilst Sergio Reguilon is the clear first choice left-back.

In midfield is where things get interesting.

Tanguy Ndombele starred vs Wolves on Wednesday night and simply has to keep his place in the midfield three.

He’s the perfect foil for the more sturdy duo of Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg too.

Then, in the front three, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son are absolutely nailed on to start.

The final piece of the puzzle alongside the star duo, though, is another of Wednesday’s finest performers.

Bryan Gil was a thorn in the side of the Molineux faithful all night with his dribbling and ability to find space.

He’s one of the Premier League’s brightest young talents and he has fully earned a start here.

It helps his case that both Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura are injured.

However, he still has to take his chance and can do so with a strong performance against Arsenal on Sunday.
