How Tottenham Hotspur could line up against Burnley

Sports Mole looks at how Tottenham Hotspur could line up for their Premier League clash with Burnley on Saturday.

A big week for Tottenham Hotspur begins with a trip to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

Jose Mourinho's men enter the game at Turf Moor on the back of four successive defeats in all competitions.

As well as exiting the FA Cup to Norwich City, Spurs have also lost a couple of league games and trail RB Leipzig 1-0 ahead of Tuesday's last-16 return leg in Germany.

Before that trip to the Red Bull Arena, the Lilywhites must first attempt to get their top-flight campaign back on track when heading to Burnley.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Mourinho may set out his side.

Possible TOTXI v BUR

Out: Harry Kane (hamstring), Son Heung-min (arm), Moussa Sissoko (knee)
Doubtful: Juan Foyth (groin), Hugo Lloris (groin), Ryan Sessegnon (hip), Erik Lamela (fitness)

Mourinho has admitted to being "really worried" about his side's quick turnaround in fixtures, with the trip to Leipzig coming three days after this showdown at Burnley.

Rotation can be expected between the two matches, though a lack of other options could see the Portuguese revert back to the same front three used in the 3-2 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

That would mean academy product Troy Parrott, given a chance in the cup exit to Norwich, dropping back out of the side.

Hugo Lloris has missed Spurs' last two games with a groin problem and is not expected to return this weekend, while Ryan Sessegnon and Erik Lamela are also fitness doubts.

Elsewhere, Japhet Tanganga is in contention to start at right-back, though Mourinho may instead rest him ahead of the Leipzig clash and go with Serge Aurier here.
