Tottenham Hotspur VS Middlesbrough
Saturday (04/02/2017)
17:30 (WAT)

Tottenham will be expected to get back to winning ways when they host Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Mauricio Pochettino's side produced a lacklustre performance against Sunderland in midweek, which proved to be costly as the majority of the top six also dropped Premier League points.

Spurs can ill-afford a repeat against Aitor Karanka's men as they look to keep up the pressure on pacesetters Chelsea.

Boro have not won on their travels since the opening day of the season and the north Londoners, who are unbeaten on home turf, will be keen to lay down a marker following back-to-back draws.

Danny Rose will miss the game having picked up a knee problem in midweek, and will see a specialist on Monday to determine the extent of the problem.

Ben Davies is set to deputise at left wing-back, though fellow full-back Kieran Trippier is also out along with Georges-Kevin Nkoudou. Hugo Lloris is expcted to return after illness, though Jan Vertonghen is sidelined with ankle ligament damage,

Harry Kane will lead the line while Heung-min Son is likely to have done enough to reclaim his place on the left flank.

Meanwhile, Daniel Ayala is set to return from suspension for the visitors, but George Friend, Calum Chambers and Gaston Ramirez are all out.

Alvaro Negredo is likely to be named in attack but the Spaniard could be joined up top by either Rudy Gestede or Patrick Bamford.

Adlene Guedioura is in contention after signing from Watford.

Spurs starting XI: Lloris; Walker, Dier, Alderweireld, Davies; Wanyama, Dembele; Eriksen, Alli, Son; Kane

Middlesbrough starting XI: Valdes; Barragan, Bernardo, Gibson, Fabio; De Roon, Clayton, Forshaw; Traore, Negredo, Stuani
