The north London club are chasing leaders Chelsea for the title and will need to overturn a seven-point deficit to win the crown.
Alli and Harry Kane are both in the running for individual PFA awards, while Barton has also selected three Spurs defenders in his team.
Goalkeeper Lloris has become recognised as one of the best shot stoppers in the division and he has played a huge role in Spurs conceding just 22 league goals this season.
Meanwhile, Walker has continued to impress at right-back and Belgian centre-back Alderweireld is the rock in the defence.
In other Tottenham news, Rio Ferdinand has made a huge claim about the club’s ace.
