Tottenham Forward Projections at West Ham
With changes across the other two lines for Tottenham,, it seems fitting that there are changes to the front three for Spurs as well.
Left-forward – Richarlison
Son Heung-min has not been firing on all cylinders thus far this season, and Richarlison is hot. After providing the pressure and the pass to set up Spurs’ second goal against Forest, Richarlison is knocking on the door for a start. Likewise, Son has been struggling a bit. Combining the two makes it almost impossible to ignore the Brazilian taking some major minutes soon.
Center-forward – Harry Kane
It is not inconceivable that Harry Kane gets to start the game from the bench after putting in a long 90-minute shift on Sunday. However, the reality is that Kane is undroppable right now, and Tottenham needs him, so he continues to start and hopefully thrives in another London derby.
Right-forward – Dejan Kulusevski
Another player who could be in line for a few minutes of rest is Dejan Kulusevski. The Swedish attacker played his butt off against Forest, consistently driving the team forward from deep and providing a solid outlet. Dekki did play more minutes than Son, so he could be in line for a rest, but with Moura out and no other clear second right forward, Kulusevski continues to start.
