Tottenham projected XI to face Sheffield United in FA Cup

On Wednesday evening, Spurs continue their FA Cup journey by visiting Sheffield United with a trip to the quarterfinals on the line; this is how Tottenham should lineup.

Despite winning their last two games in relatively convincing shutouts, Cristian Stellini and Tottenham Hotspur should look to rotate their squad with a big run over the next two weeks. If Spurs are going to finish in the top four and maybe even win some silverware, that means contributions will have to come from many places, and that should be the case on Wednesday.

Tottenham projected forwards to cut the Blades

Although Spurs have had success the last two weeks with the Richarlison, Harry Kane, and Dejan Kulusevski line, we should expect changes on Wednesday.

Left-forward – Heung-min Son

After playing only about 30 minutes in two weeks, South Korean superstar Heung-min Son should be rip-roaring and ready to go on Wednesday. Sheffield is no pushover. However, the Blades have conceded three goals in three of their last seven matches, meaning Son may have the chance to get right after struggling for a lot of the season as a starter.

Center-forward – Richarlison

It may be nearly blasphemous not to start Harry Kane; however, Richarlison was added to the team for precisely this situation. While Kane will be on the bench and available for the team if the need arises, ideally, Harry spends the entire evening in the warm embrace of his warm-up kit while Richarlison leads the line. Richarlison has been working hard instead of Son in the Premier League 11, and he should be rewarded for that work with a start in his more natural position.

Right-forward – Dejan Kulusevski

Although we’d like to see and expect some rotation in the front three, that will not likely be in all three positions, Kulusevski has been playing well but not great over the last few weeks. Having him on the pitch to continue progressing after an extended period out injured as well will be good for him and the team. While Arnaut Danjuma could use some minutes, we expect to see Kulusevski from the start.
