How Spurs will line up with Aurier and Llorente

Tottenham completed two key signings on transfer deadline day by hiring the services of Ivorian defender Serge Aurier and Spanish forward Fernando Llorente.

According to the Guardian, the duo cost the North Londoners a combined fee of 37 million pounds ($48million).

The 32-year-old center forward scored 15 goals in his debut Premier League season (33 appearances) for Swansea last term and Pochettino has lured him to provide effective cover for Harry Kane, something that Janssen failed to do in the last campaign.

Vincent is still with Spurs but we can expect Llorente to be preferred ahead of the Dutch striker.

As far as the 24-year-old right back is concerned, he joins the club as the direct replacement of England international Kyle Walker, who left the club to join Manchester City in the summer transfer window.

Therefore, the former Toulouse star should replace Trippier to get straight into the starting XI under the management of Mauricio.

The Argentine boss has mainly used the 3-4-2-1 formation and for now, we have predicted the lineup without Kane, because only in his absence, Llorente would get the nod to start.

Here is how Spurs will line up with Aurier and Llorente.
