Tottenham XI vs Sporting Lisbon: Predicted line-ups, confirmed squad news and latest Champions League injuries

Brazilian striker Richarlison has recently hit scorching form after starting most of the season on the bench, scoring twice against Marseille last week.

This forced Conte to consider splitting his front three from last season – Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min – who proved so effective.

Kulusevski was the man to miss last week against Marseille and Conte has more dilemmas ahead of Tuesday’s game in Lisbon.

“Of course, I think all managers like this kind of problem,” he said. “That means up front we have four players for three places.

“We are on the right track because to face four competitions, especially if you play the Champions League, you need to have a deep squad.

“At the moment we have four players and everyone deserves to play. We started with Sonny, Harry and Deky, then the last games which I preferred to give Richy the opportunity to play.

“Of course I have the possibility of signing three important players and I know that I have another player on the bench who is ready to come and help us, like in the last game against Marseille.”

Spurs have only one injury concern ahead of the game, with Lucas Moura still out injured.

Tottenham probably XI (3-4-3): Loris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Royal, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Perisic; Richarlison, Kane, Son.

Injured: Moura (leg)
