Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Danny Rose will miss the home meeting with Manchester City due to a calf complaint. With Spurs facing City a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday before their FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United, the Spurs boss is expected to name his strongest starting XI to possibly rotate in midweek. So Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier will likely occupy the full-back positions, with Serge Aurier perhaps more likely to feature at the Amex Stadium. Eric Dier should partner Mousa Dembele at the base of midfield in the usual 4-2-3-1 formation, with Victor Wanyama dropping to the bench. Similarly, Erik Lamela is likely to miss out to Son Heung-min in the attacking midfield spots. Harry Winks (ankle) remains sidelined.
Trippier – Sanchez – Vertonghen – Davies
Dier – Dembele
Eriksen – Alli – Son
