DC) Vlad Chiriches
The Romanian has been one of Spurs’ better summer signings, and is extremely composed in possession, and capable of carrying the ball from the back into midfield. With Vertonghen and Kaboul out, he’s practically a guaranteed starter.
DC) Michael Dawson
As was just mentioned, Vertonghen and Kaboul are still injured, so the club captain should partner Romanian Chriches in defence.
