How Tottenham Hotspur could line up against Fulham

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte could be handed a couple of fitness boosts for Saturday’s Premier League London derby with Fulham.

The Italian – who witnessed his side draw 1-1 with West Ham United in midweek – will hope to welcome Rodrigo Bentancur and Cristian Romero back to the fold as the pair work their way back from a concussion and groin injury respectively.

Oliver Skipp was fit enough for a place on the bench at the London Stadium, but Conte still has concerns over Bryan Gil and Lucas Moura, the latter of whom will definitely miss out with a tendon issue.

Conte may elect to keep Romero in reserve for the imminent Champions League clash with Marseille, allowing Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies to link up in front of Hugo Lloris.

Clement Lenglet and Japhet Tanganga are options for change in the heart of the backline, and it would be a surprise to see the pairing of Yves Bissouma and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg broken up.

Emerson Royal was a standout performer in midweek and should hold his spot on the right, but Ryan Sessegnon should be in with a strong chance of displacing Ivan Perisic given the latter’s fitness woes earlier in the summer.

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are highly unlikely to lose their spots in the final third, but Conte does possess the option to start Richarlison over Dejan Kulusevski and may consider such a move here.

Tottenham possible starting lineup: Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Sessegnon; Richarlison, Kane, Son
