‘He’s Available’: Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup vs Luton Town

Tottenham Hotspur vs Nottingham Forest Tactical Preview

Key Defender to Return: Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup as they Host Luton Town

How Tottenham Hotspur Have Recently Lined-up

Vicaro Guglielmo has been ever-present between the sticks for Spurs this season. But his defence has been chopped and changed around injuries and suspensions.

Most recently Micky van de Ven has suffered another injury, which has opened the door for the hard-working Radu Dragusin. Cristian Romero was his partner in centre-back, while Pedro Porro and Destiny Udogie seem to be Postecoglou’s favoured full-backs.

In midfield, Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr started their second match together and were both substituted at the 66-minute mark as Postecoglou tried his best to turn the Fulham fiasco around.

As usual, James Maddison is irreplaceable in his central attacking midfield role. He is vital for getting Spurs into those dangerous positions and executing the killer pass. These skills also come in handy for England, with him crucially assisting Jude Bellingham for the Three Lions’ last-gasp equaliser against Belgium.

On the wings, Dejan Kulusevski and Brennan Johnson have started the last two matches together, with Timo Werner preferred as an impact sub as of late.

Son has continued to lead the line for Spurs. The South Korean was disappointed with himself and his team-mates, labelling the Fulham defeat as “unacceptable” and apologising to the Spurs fans.

Tottenham Hotspur Recent Form and Tactics

After recovering from 1-0 deficits for much of the season, Spurs finally came unstuck against Fulham, unable to really get going or create any chances. It was a bit off-colour for the Lilywhites, who had previously scored in the last 39 Premier League matches, a record only beaten by Arsenal across 55 matches, May 2001 – December 2002.

Postecoglou’s Tottenham formation remains faithful to the 4-2-3-1 and until now it has been reasonably effective for the North London side. After running riot against Aston Villa, with a free-flowing attacking style of play, Spurs simply didn’t turn up against Fulham.

But despite that recent blip, Tottenham’s tactical set-up has improved since Postecoglou’s arrival. The manager has pushed Spurs three metres higher up the pitch on average, according to Opta – this is the biggest increase of any Premier League side. Only Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool set up higher. Moreover, Spurs are pressing higher and forcing the most high turnovers in the Premier League.

Tottenham’s form in the last five Premier League matches is three wins and two losses.

Tottenham Hotspur Injuries to Consider

Micky van de Ven left a massive hole with his recent absence. The good news for Postecoglou’s side is that he has trained in the last few days and is available for selection.

Postecoglou also confirmed that all Spurs players that were out on international duty returned “unscathed”.

After returning from injury against Fulham, Richarlison should again be ready for selection. Although the Brazilian is said to have a “bit of a knee niggle”, he has trained today and is also ready for selection.

The other injury news is that Rodrigo Bentacur has been playing with a broken toe for the past month. Postecoglou played it off rather cooly, “Yeah, broken small toe. He has got nine others. You know, I don’t think anyone could question Rodrigo’s courage with what he’s had to deal with recently.”
