Tottenham Hotspur travel to Nottingham Forest’s City Ground in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Dean Saunders was the last player to score a Premier League goal for Forest against Spurs when the Welshman beat Ian Walker in 1997. Tottenham went through the entirety of the 2021/22 campaign without conceding a goal to any of the newly promoted cabal.

Here’s the lineup Antonio Conte may deploy to preserve that parsimonious edge.

Defence

Hugo Lloris will operate in between the sticks for the Lilywhites as the French shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure another clean sheet this weekend.

Davinson Sanchez will form the centre-half partnership with Eric Dier and Ben Davies at the heart of Spurs’ backline as Cristian Romero takes to the treatment room.

Ivan Perisic could be given the nod over Ryan Sessegnon on the left wing-back again, whereas Emerson Royal will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back. The full-backs will be expected to stretch the opposition backline creating opportunities from the wide areas.

Midfield

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg might start in the holding midfield position and could be assigned more of a defensive role to shield the back three.

Rodrigo Bentancur will slot into the central midfield role looking to distribute possession efficiently in the centre of the park.

Attack

Harry Kane will lead the line for Tottenham this weekend as the England international will hope to find the back of the net and put his name on the scoresheet against the opposition.

Son Heung-Min and Dejan Kulusevki would take up the wing positions looking to create some clear-cut goal-scoring chances in front of the goal.
