How Spurs are likely to lineup against Forest.
Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to start their Capital One Cup campaign with an encounter at White Hart Lane with Championship outfit Nottingham Forest.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino is expected to continue his rotation policy and there are a few names in line for their Spurs debut.
Here’s how CaughtOffside thinks the North London side will lineup.
GK – Michel Vorm
It’s a chance for the goalkeeper to make his Tottenham debut following a summer transfer from Swansea City, although usurping Hugo Lloris on a permanent basis is a difficult task.
RB – Kyle Naughton
The full-back is likely to be given another chance with Pochettino using the opportunity to rest usual right-back Eric Dier, although Naughton still has much to prove.
CB – Younes Kaboul
The captain gets a spot in our team to add some grit and experience, although there is every chance Jan Vertonghen could feature having done so infrequently so far this term.
CB – Federico Fazio
The new signing from Sevilla is likely to get another game to try and bed into English football and Pochettino certainly has a plethora of central defensive talent at his disposal now.
LB – Ben Davies
The improved form of Danny Rose has seen this new signing struggling for game time, although like against Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League this could well be another chance for the Welshman.
