Predicted Tottenham Hotspur line-up to face Sheffield United: Three changes for Pochettino

WH Lane

Here is the possible Tottenham Hotspur side for the League Cup semi-final against Sheffield United.

Tottenham Hotspur head into the first leg of their League Cup semi-final against Sheffield United full of confidence.

Spurs come off the back of a well fought 2-1 win against Sunderland in the Premier League and they should be determined to make the most of their favourite tag heading into the tie.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino may use the match to rotate is side, as he looks to keep everyone fresh but it’s a huge match considering the stakes and the realistic chances of silverware for Spurs in the competition.

The boss will also be keen for his side to get ahead in the tie and give themselves a lead, which gives them options ahead of the second leg.

Regardless of whether the boss makes changes, he’ll name a very strong side that shouldn’t be complacent and one that will be ready for the physical approach the Blades could take to knock Spurs off their game.

Here’s the side Pochettino could go with for the game.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Walker, Fazio, Vertonghen, Rose, Stambouli, Dembele, Paulinho, Eriksen, Townsend, Kane
