After the disappointing 3-0 loss to Manchester United there was plenty of debate as to whether Mauricio Pochettino had got his team selection right.

Eric Dier had a particularly difficult game and there is a strong argument that Federico Fazio should have played at Old Trafford, with his physicality more suited to dealing with Marouane Fellaini.

So should Fazio start over Dier against Leicester? Not in our opinion. Dier is a young player and as such he’s bound to make mistakes. So is Fazio on this season’s performances, only he doesn’t have youth as an excuse.

We’d go with an unchanged line-up from the side that lost at Old Trafford and not just because the players in reserve are not particularly inspiring. It would also be a show of faith in this inexperienced side.

Here’s our Spurs side to face Leicester. What’s yours?



  1. think bentaleb needs a rest and our course the tealady townsend who is an absolute nightmare why oohh why did poo not send townsend to everton lennon has more appeal spurs to win 3 1 on saturday or next week levy to play right back

  2. I’ve been supporting Spurs for over 40 years and am not a fan who immediately knee jerks on one bad result. Spurs have not played well since beating Arsenal convincingly, we have played poorly since. I would play exactly the same team that thrashed Chelsea 5-3, if it’s not broken why fix it? The jury is out by many Spurs fans regarding the chairman, board, manager and team. If the board do not support the manager with marquee signings, how can we expect marquee performances? We will see many departures this summer, of the some 13 new players signed the last 2 summers, only Eriksen and maybe Chadli are starting regularly, what terrible transfer dealings! They’d better get it right this summer…..

  3. Ever since Fiorentina came out for the second half of the first leg pushing us tighter against our own defense showed the premier league teams how to play against us. We where completely restricted from playing and highlighted Poch has no plan B. From this time we haven’t been able to play creative football. If he used the FBs to overlap more which would support the wide men would give us the chance to be more creative with Ericsson

  4. I think Hodgson is losing it. Picking Townsend and Walker [ and Walcott, Gibbs with Shaw who have not been fit and or out of form] and not put in Danny Rose was ridiculous!!

  5. Use Rose on the wing , good going forward and can help Davies out in defence if need be
    Bit like we did with Bale as he was not a good lb either. Chiriches a no go as prone to mistakes!
