Pedro Porro and Arnaut Danjuma start but Heung-Min Son and Richarlison are absent
Antonio Conte has made it his mission to improve his Tottenham squad in January and Arnaut Danjuma and Pedro Porro will do just that.
Dutch striker Danjuma has been loaned out until the end of the season by Villarreal, with Spurs having the option of signing him permanently.
And the North London outfit are also set to announce the arrival of right-back Porro.
Spurs have identified the Sporting Lisbon defender, who has a £40m release clause, as their No.1 target in the winter window.
Conte is determined to bring in a new winger, with the Italian having question marks over Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty.
Djed Spence was brought in from Middlesbrough last summer but is not in Conte’s plans and will be allowed to leave on loan.
It remains to be seen whether Porro will be registered in time to face Preston in the FA Cup on Saturday, with his debut likely to come against Manchester City the following week.
But how could Tottenham start with their new signings in Conte’s favorite 5-2-3 formation?

Although he has made many mistakes since the World Cup, Hugo Lloris will probably keep his place between the sticks until the summer.
Spurs are reportedly keen to replace the Frenchman at the end of the campaign, with Jordan Pickford, David Raya and Robert Sanchez all being possible targets.
The right-back would be Porro, with Ivan Perisic on the other side of the defence.
Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Ben Davies would then be the three centre-backs, with Clement Lenglet ruled out due to his poor performances lately.
A central midfield duo would then consist of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur.
Kulusevski would then slot in on the right wing, with Danjuma – who can also function as a centre-forward – deployed on the opposite flank.
This would see Heung-Min Son fall to the bench, with the South Korea international struggling to impress this season.
Son has scored in just two Premier League games after winning the Golden Boot last season.
At the head of the queue would be Harry Kane, with Brazilian striker Richarlison once again having to settle for a place in the dugout.
