Projecting Spurs Forwards

Tottenham will have one of their traditional starting three available for Motherwell, and we are excited to see that one.

Left-forward – Bryan Gil

A player many fans would like to see starting garnering minutes or go out on loan, Bryan Gil should begin on the left with both Son and Richarlison unavailable from the World Cup. In limited minutes this season, Gil has demonstrated the kind of drive and aggression that we want to see; hopefully, he can do that for an hour or more on Friday.

Center-forward – Lucas Moura

This is not his position, but the options are limited for Conte, so we expect Lucas Moura will start as the central striker on Friday versus the Well. Given the game is behind closed doors, Conte could opt for youth and bring on Dane Scarlett, but more likely, Moura gets some much-needed minutes, even if the position is not his own.

Right-forward – Dejan Kulusevski

Maybe the one play Tottenham fans are most excited to see is our ginger from Sweden, Dejan Kulusevski. Dekki is a budding superstar, and the team sorely missed him when he was out with an injury early this year. Expect Kulusevski to see a lot of the ball early and often against the Well.
