— Manchester United (@ManUtd) August 18, 2018
In Goal, we have David De Gea. We could’ve gone with Hugo Lloris but De Gea has been more consistent in terms of Clean sheets than a Frenchman.

Shaw has started the Season well and the England International will be looking to put in a good performance against Tottenham.
CB- Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur)
— Jan Vertonghen (@JanVertonghen) August 18, 2018
Vertonghen has as usual looked rock solid for Tottenham. The Belgian International has been one of the most consistent Centre-Backs in the League.
CB- Davinson Sanchez (Tottenham Hotspur)
Record signing 💸
43 appearances ⚽️

Davinson Sanchez has been pretty impressive for Spurs. Definitely better than Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof.
RB- Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur)
— Kieran Trippier (@trippier2) August 18, 2018
Trippier had an amazing World Cup and has carried that form into the Premier League. The Right-Back scored a gem of a free-kick and deserves his spot in this team.
CDM- Mousa Dembele (Tottenham Hotspur)
Mousa Dembele is that one mate who can't do the Dele Alli celebration 👌🤣 pic.twitter.com/fdtR7hxuBg
— Soccer AM (@SoccerAM) August 17, 2018
The Belgian is a workhorse. Dembele puts in a good shift and makes the team ahead of Nemanja Matic who was out Injured.
CM- Paul Pogba (Manchester United)
Which Paul Pogba will we see tomorrow night?
— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) August 26, 2018
Pogba has been in the news for all the wrong reasons but expects the Frenchman to step up against Tottenham and maybe shut some of his critics up.
CAM- Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur)
Eriksen is one of the best Playmakers in the League and has interested the likes of PSG and Barcelona in the past. The Dane is an extremely influential player for Tottenham.
CF(Number 10)- Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur)
Did anybody watch that "Phenoms: Dele Alli" ??
Really shows a side of Alli that none of us really see, shows how committed he is to football, not just Spurs or England the sport itself!
The lad gets a lot of stick but you have to give it to him he's a class player. pic.twitter.com/obTdtHif76
— Footy Accumulators (@FootyAccums) August 27, 2018
Dele Alli has taken social media by a storm with his infamous challenges, but the Tottenham player has been impressive since returning from the World Cup.
ST- Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

— Squawka Football (@Squawka) August 18, 2018
Kane has finally scored in August and will be looking to hit the ground running against Manchester United tonight.
ST- Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United)
Romelu Lukaku: "Every time we miss the target during training, we have to do push ups."

Lukaku has looked a little off colour for United, but if the Belgian can bring his World Cup form to the fore, he’ll be a force to be reckoned with.
