He will spearhead the attack while Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung Min are likely to be tucked behind him. Mousa Dembele is a doubt with a hip problem, Eric Dier is expcted to be rested or to replace Davinson Sanchez in defense. As a result, Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks will probably anchor the midfield with Erik Lamela viable alternative.
