Tottenham Hotspur looks to make it three from three in the Premier League under Nuno Espirito Santo, when Watford comes to north London, here, are the XI Spurs will start.

Tottenham Hotspur has been developing some real chemistry over the early part of the season. That chemistry has come from a real consistency in the starting XI that began in the preseason and has continued into the Premier League campaign. However, that consistency we have seen is likely to get a little tweak on Sunday, as Harry Kane is back in the side and likely back in the starting XI, so who will drop out of the top line-up.

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris

It is really no surprise that Hugo Lloris is starting between the sticks for Tottenham on Sunday. Pierluigi Gollini did get a shutout midweek against Pacos but was not really tested. Further Gollini had a couple of shaky moments with the ball at his feet early in the match.

After logging his club-record 300th appearance in the Premier League last week, along with two straight shutouts, Hugo Lloris is likely ready to go. Lloris has been steady all season and has been particularly effective with his distribution. Always known as a sweeper-keeper, Lloris has struggled with his distribution the last couple of seasons. The earlier releases on the more line-drive style punts have been a nice addition to the teams’ attacking repertoire.

So who is going to protect Lloris and who is going to be in the attack, read on to find out.
