Spurs hoodoo-breakers set to go again

Tottenham Hotspur

Mauricio Pochettino can keep faith with the side that ended Spurs' supposed Wembley hoodoo when Swansea visit the stadium on Saturday.

The Tottenham boss has no fresh injury or suspension concerns, although Jan Vertonghen will miss the next Champions League game after he was sent off in Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund.

Pochettino made three changes in midweek from last weekend’s superb victory at Everton, switching to a back four which included Serge Aurier at the expense of Kieran Trippier.

The Ivory Coast international could keep his place while fellow new signing Davinson Sanchez will only return if Pochettino reverts to a back three.

Mousa Dembele appears to be back in favour after dropping to the bench for the win at Goodison Park, which could see Moussa Sissoko remain as a substitute.

Erik Lamela is not yet ready to return after a long injury lay-off.
