How Tottenham could line up under Graham Potter including Yves Bissouma with Nuno facing sack after Man Utd nightmare

TOTTENHAM could be set for a new look line-up following the January transfer window should Graham Potter replace Nuno Espirito Santo.

The Spurs gaffer is facing an uncertain future in North London following the 3-0 defeat against Manchester United on Saturday.

This is how Tottenham could start under Graham Potter should Nuno Espirito Santo be sacked

Daniel Levy is understood to be considering sacking the Portuguese gaffer, with Spurs losing five out of their ten Premier League games this term.

Nuno admitted that Spurs are ‘not on the right track’ after their dismal display against the Red Devils after his side were booed off the pitch.

Brighton manager Potter is the favourite to succeed Nuno should he be relieved of his duties, and he could bring some members of his Seagulls squad to Tottenham.

Here SunSport takes a look at how the club could line-up under the tutelage of Potter come February.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is in the final year of his contract, and it remains to be seen whether he will be offered a new deal.

Should the club decide against extending his stay, or if the Frenchman is unwilling to commit his future to Spurs, he could be sold in a cut-price transfer in the New Year.


If Lloris moves on in January, Tottenham could target Brighton shot-stopper Robert Sanchez, with the Spaniard becoming the club’s No1 under Potter last season.

Summer arrival Emerson Royal could start at right-back ahead of Tanguy Ndombele, with Sergio Reguilon to slot in on the opposite flank.

And Eric Dier could partner Sergio Romero in the heart of defence, with Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rodon to be left on the bench.

Potter could opt for three midfielders in the middle of the pitch, including Tanguy Ndombele and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

They could start alongside Brighton ace Yves Bissouma, who is believed to be available for around £40million.

South Korea international Son Heung-min could the feature on the left flank, with Lucas Moura appearing on the opposite side.

Harry Kane is also facing an uncertain future at Tottenham following his failed switch to Manchester City in the recent transfer window.

And having failed to impress this term, Daniel Levy could decide to offload the centre-forward, who has scored just one top-flight goal from his nine top-flight outings.

Spurs could bring in Torino marksman Andrea Belotti in his place should Kane depart, with the Italian refusing to extend his stay in Turin.
