The Tottenham Lineup That Should Start Against West Brom

It's been an eventful start to the season for Tottenham, to say the least. From the disappointment of an opening day defeat to Everton and their 3-3 collapse at home to West Ham, to the jubilation of an emphatic 6-1 win away to Manchester United, you could never accuse Spurs of being boring.

That being said, they're unbeaten in the league since their early loss at the hands of the Toffees, and many Spurs fans are beginning to wonder - could Jose Mourinho's incredible knack of securing the title in his second season at a club be about to strike again?

If Spurs are to embark on a title tilt, fixtures like their trip to West Brom on Sunday are - realistically - must-win games. So, let's take a look at how Mourinho's team should lineup for their visit to the Hawthorns.

1. Goalkeeper and Defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK): Should be well rested having sat out the midweek win over Ludogorets in the Europa League. Has been solid if unspectacular this season, though after a number of shaky moments last campaign he'll be pleased to be avoiding the limelight.

Matt Doherty (RB): His summer signing was far from a marquee arrival, but he's started brightly. May not quite offer the attacking endeavour of Serge Aurier but looks much more astute defensively.

Toby Alderweireld (CB): Has been in and out of the side this season as Mourinho looks to establish his favoured centre-back partnership. Started the previous three Premier League games and is expected to be given the nod on Sunday.

Eric Dier (CB): Looked solid against Ludogorets and appears to be Mourinho's favoured centre-back.

Sergio Reguilon (LB): Whipped in a peach of a delivery for Gareth Bale to register his first goal since returning to the club against Brighton last weekend. Already looking like a quality acquisition.

2. Midfielders

Moussa Sissoko (CM): Appeared to have fallen out of favour early on this season but has played every minute of Spurs' previous four league games.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM): Settled into the starting XI very nicely since his summer arrival from Southampton. Offers bite and drive in the centre of the park and has played every minute of the league campaign so far.

Tanguy Ndombele (CM): Has shown glimpses of the player Spurs paid all that money for last summer - and he can't accuse Mourinho of not affording him his chance this season. Still guilty of silly mistakes from time to time but there's definitely a special player in there.

3. Forwards

Lucas Moura (RW): Produced a superb display in the week and so could retain his place having not to featured at home to Brighton.

Harry Kane (ST): Goes without saying really. The player of the season so far in all leagues, and his linkup play with Son Heung-min has been different class this year. Should be full of confidence after a brilliant start to the campaign and having notched his 200th goal for the club on Thursday.

Son Heung-min (LW): *Copy and paste the above* (minus the 200 goals - maybe one day). Top scorer in the Premier League and will be key to any success Tottenham have this season.
