Tottenham team news: Expected 4-3-3 line up vs Brentford as Mourinho makes six changes | Football | Sport


Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho can edge closer to delivering on his promise to win silverware in north London tonight. Spurs take on Championship high-flyers Brentford in the semi-final of the League Cup and will be looking to avoid a serious upset.

Brentford have already proven they’re not to be underestimated, having beaten four Premier League sides on their way to the final.

The Bees won at Southampton and West Brom before beating Fulham and Newcastle on home soil.

Spurs are expected to go strong despite several changes to their starting XI.

Hugo Lloris is expected to start between the sticks, keeping his place ahead of Joe Hart and Paulo Gazzaniga.

Sergio Reguilon could come back in, despite disappointing Mourinho by breaking lockdown regulation.

Moussa Sissoko should return in midfield after being dropped to the bench against Leeds.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is set to play alongside him with Harry Winks dropping out.

Dele Alli could be given a rare chance to make a statement ahead of the January transfer window too.

In attack, Lucas Moura could come back having barely featured in recent weeks.

Harry Kane and Heung-min Son complete the Spurs attack, as they bid to fire Tottenham to Wembley.

Gareth Bale remains a doubt for the clash with a calf problem.

Erik Lamela will miss the game after breaching lockdown regulations while Giovani Lo Celso is injured, despite being in attendance.

Expected Tottenham XI (4-3-3): Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg, Dele; Lucas, Son, Kane.
