Anthony Gordon started for just the second time since arriving from Everton last weekend, but did very little to suggest he’ll be handed another start anytime soon.
So, with Allan Saint-Maximin edging back to fitness, Joelinton could be back out-wide with Sean Longstaff returning to midfield.
One the other side, Miguel Almirón came off the bench at Villa Park, so could displace Jacob Ramsey.
Callum Wilson scored in the 2-1 victory at Spurs in October, but Alexander Isak is set to lead the line here.
