Reports: Irons face vastly changed Spurs team

Spurs are set to make a host of changes to their starting XI for tonight’s derby against the Hammers.

A number of Spurs journalists on Twitter appear to have been briefed on the starting XI, and it’s good news for the Irons!

Star striker Harry Kane, in-form winger Erik Lamela and key defender Toby Alderweireld are set to be rested, per Matt Law.

Eric Dier is injured, while Kieran Trippier and Ben Davies are set to be rotated, as is Mauricio Pochettino’s belief in freshening his full-backs. Kyle Walker-Peters is set to start in Trippier’s stead, says Ian Ladyman, while Danny Rose is likely to step in for Davies.

Paulo Gazzaniga is poised to start in goal, ahead of error-prone captain Hugo Lloris, while Juan Foyth is set to replace Alderweireld.

The likes of Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko could also feature, while Fernando Llorente is set to lead the line, with no other viable alternative to Kane up front for Spurs.
