Spurs will be desperate for three points against the top flight’s bottom side…
Here’s the side we think Tim Sherwood will select to face Sunderland tonight in the Premier League…
GK) Hugo Lloris
An automatic starter for Spurs, Lloris acts a sweeper keeper, able to rush out of his goal and clear through-balls played in behind his defence.
DR) Kyle Naughton
First-choice right-back Kyle Walker is still rated as doubtful, meaning Naughton will almost definitely get the nod to start on the right of the back four.
DC) Michael Dawson
With Jan Vertonghen definitely out, and Vlad Chiriches not 100%, the club captain should start in the centre of defence next to Kaboul.
DC) Younes Kaboul
The powerful Frenchman had a shocker against Liverpool last time out, conceding an own goal – but he’ll hope for an easier afternoon against the Premier League’s bottom side.
DL) Danny Rose
Rose provides constant running and work-rate up the left flank, and will be facing the club where he spent last season on loan.
