GK – Marcus Bettinelli

With Djordje Petrovic having played a lot of football in Robert Sanchez’s absence over the past month, the Serbian may get a rest this weekend.

Bettinelli hasn’t made a single appearance this season but he has usually been selected in the early rounds of the domestic cups over the past couple of years.

The 31-year-old didn’t get a chance to play in the Carabao Cup fixtures against AFC Wimbledon, Brighton and Blackburn Rovers due to a knee injury.

However, Pochettino may decide to give him a game against Preston, when he should have a pretty quiet evening.
