Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho will be hoping his side can carry on their impressive run of form with all three points against Fulham in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

The London club have won four of their last five games ahead of the clash and Mourinho should have something close to a fully fit and healthy squad to pick from.

In defence the Portuguese manager will almost certainly stick with Hugo Lloris between the sticks, while a number of first-choice defenders return to the back line.

Toby Alderweireld will keep his spot at the heart of defence, but is likely to be joined by the returning Eric Dier at centre back, with Serge Aurier on the right and Sergio Reguilon at left-back.

Despite picking up a nasty shin injury against Brentford last week, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg should return to his favoured role in central midfield. There he’ll most likely be joined by Harry Winks as well as Tanguy Ndombele.

Despite scoring three goals against Marine, Carlos Vinicius will almost certainly drop back to the bench for this clash against Fulham as Harry Kane retakes his place up front. Heung-Min Son should start on the left and then Steven Bergwijn will join him on the right.
