Ben Davies is still unavailable due to injury, while Serge Aurier is back in contention. Japhet Tanganga was stretchered off midweek against Villa and is unlikely to play a part. Ryan Mason has a decision to make between Aurier and Matt Doherty. Though he shouldn’t spend too long deliberating, as Aurier is expected to leave the club — for either Real Madrid or PSG — at season’s end. That should leave Mason with a relatively easy decision to start Doherty.
The Irishman has been training well and deserves to get a game in before the lads break for the summer.
Sergio Reguilon endured his worst performance in a Spurs shirt against Villa and will be looking to rebound from that humiliating first half. He doesn’t really have anyone to compete with and will retain his position at left back. This could also be the Spaniard’s last match for Spurs, though his future is unclear at this moment. Earlier rumours suggested that Madrid will recall their on-loan left back, but there’s nothing new to report on that front.
Mason is steadfast on starting Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld together in the middle of the park, though I have no idea why Joe Rodon hasn’t been given another shot, particularly when considering Dier’s consistent inept performances. Davinson Sanchez hasn’t gotten a sniff since Mason took charge. Expect a continuation of that theme. I have an inkling, while I want to believe Rodon will get a chance, that Mason won’t alter the same defensive pair he’s choses since replacing Jose.
