Confirmed Tottenham line up v Manchester United: 26-year-old axed in one change
By Matt Farr
Mauricio Pochettino has named one change to his Tottenham starting eleven to face Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.
Kieran Trippier returns to the line-up as Tottenham bid farewell to White Hart Lane with their final home game at their north London home, with a move to Wembley confirmed ahead of next season.
Out-of-sorts full-back Kyle Walker, 26, meanwhile, drops out of the side after the surprise 1-0 defeat to West Ham a week ago.
Tottenham announced their confirmed line-up on their official Twitter account ahead of kick-off.

Despite the recent defeat, Pochettino retains the basis of his Tottenham side for their latest encounter, meaning 10 players retain their places.

Eric Dier therefore continues in the midfield alongside Victor Wanyama, which sees the impressive Mousa Dembele reduced to a role on the bench for the second week running.
Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-Min, Dele Alli and Harry Kane are also named in the starting eleven.
But Danny Rose, who has returned to first-team training and is recovering well from a knee injury, is still short of match fitness and is not risked in the matchday squad.
With the Premier League title race done and dusted, Tottenham are left playing to secure second place at the end of the campaign.
They currently hold a five point advantage over third-placed Manchester City, and a win over Manchester United could ensure it is not possible for them to be overtaken.
