Predicted Tottenham line-up for Man United: One change from Pochettino

White Hart Lane 4

We look at who could start for both sides in Spurs' must-win visit of Manchester United.

To be played on Sunday 10th April 2016 at 16:00. Venue: White Hart Lane, London

Odds: Tottenham 1/1, Draw 5/2, Man Utd 11/4

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino needs to get his starting lineup spot-on for Sunday's visit of Manchester United.

It is arguably their biggest game in a season which could yet see them end a 55-year wait to win an English top-flight league title - their last coming in 1961.

If Premier League leaders Leicester City win at Sunderland in the day's earlier kickoff, Spurs, currently seven points adrift, would know that dropping points to United would most probably spell the end of that dream, though.

Either way, victory is vitally important for Pochettino as the Argentine bids to become the first manager since Bill Nicholson to cement Tottenham as the best team in England.

In early team news, Erik Lamela, who missed the 1-1 draw at Liverpool last Saturday through injury, trained this week, but it remains to be seen if he is fully fit after picking up a calf problem on international duty with Argentina.

If not, Nacer Chadli might come in after Son Heung-min - who started last week - seemed to lack something of a cutting edge at Anfield.

Jan Vertonghen, absent from first-team duties since January with a knee injury, might also return to the squad, but Kevin Wimmer will surely continue alongside Toby Alderweireld in central defence.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are still without Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones and Luke Shaw, while Timothy Fosu-Mensah might start at the expense of Marcos Rojo after the Dutchman replaced his Argentine team-mate at half time the 1-0 win over Everton.
