Tottenham Hotspur welcome Everton to Wembley on Saturday as they look to carry their good from from the FA Cup into the Premier League, and Mauricio Pochettino is expected to make eight changes from the side who beat AFC Wimbledon 3-0.

A double from Harry Kane and a rare goal from Jan Vertonghen – his first since October 2013 – saw Spurs over the line against a stubborns Dons side, and secured their passage into the fourth round.

That result came after a damaging draw in the Premier League against West Ham, as Son Heung-Min cancelled out Pedro Obiang’s stunner with a brilliant strike of his own in a 1-1 draw.

That point left Spurs in a precarious position in the race for the Champions League, now lying three points behind Liverpool in fifth.

This weekend may be an opportunity to close that gap as the Reds welcome Manchester City to Anfield, with the leaders still unbeaten this season in the Premier League.

Pochettino rang in the changes for the FA Cup clash, handing starts to several fringe players, and is expected to revert to a full-strength team for Saturday’s match.

This is FutbolĀ have selected the expected starting XI, which sees all of Tottenham’s big guns return as they look to reignite their Champions League challenge.
