Strong 4-2-3-1 line-up: Predicted Tottenham side to play Stoke

Here is how we predict Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur will line up this weekend:

To be played on Monday 18th April 2016 at 19:00. Venue: Britannia Stadium, Stoke

Odds: Stoke 10/3, Draw 13/5, Tottenham 5/6

Tottenham Hotspur travel to the Britannia Stadium on Monday evening to take on Stoke City in their latest huge Premier League clash.

With leaders Leicester City facing West Ham United the previous day, Tottenham could again have a 10-point gap to close before they kick off; although alternatively, if the Foxes slip up, Spurs could close the gap to just four points with four games remaining.

Tottenham are flying high in the league this season but Stoke have also had a campaign to remember for the right reasons and their manager Mark Hughes has built a solid side full of exciting talent from across Europe.

The Potters are currently ninth in the table but they will not have completely given up hope of qualifying for Europe if they can string a run of wins together.

In early team news, Tottenham are without Nabil Bentaleb while Clinton N’Jie is unlikely to feature due to a lack of match fitness.

Stoke cannot call on Jack Butland, Glen Johnson, Erik Pieters, Marc Wilson or Jon Walters while Marko Arnautovic and Glenn Whelan are rated only 50/50 to be fit.
