Tottenham heads to Crystal Palace on Saturday to maintain their 100% start to the new Premier League season.

With new injury concerns after a difficult international break, Nuno Espirito Santo has to make a number of decisions regarding his team selection.

The Spurs boss was asked about the fitness of several players during his press conference on Friday – he appeared to be ruling out Son Heung-min (Wade) and voicing doubts about the availability of Oliver Skipp, Steven Bergwijn and Ryan Sessegnon.

However, a video of player training on Friday showed Skipp doing exercises with his teammates so we think the midfielder will keep his place alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Dele Alli.

Tanguy Ndombele is also in the running but it may be too early for him so the Frenchman should be on the bench.

If Bergwijn and Son are definitely out, Bryan Gil will likely make his first Premier League start, accompanying Lucas Moura and Harry Kane in the top three.

Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez are training in Croatia after the South American mayhem last week, which means Eric Dier needs a new partner as a center-back.

That will likely be Joe Rodon, with Japhet Tanganga keeping his place as right-back for now – Emerson Royal may have to wait for his debut on the day of the due date.

Hugo Lloris and Sergio Reguilon will also be at the start. Here is our predicted XI to face Palace – what’s yours? Let us know in the comment section below.
