It seems like Mauricio Pochettino has decided that Spurs have reached the part of the season where he will experiment a little.
Paulinho has started in the last two away games and made a decent showing against Newcastle. The same can not be said for Erik Lamela but with relatively little to play for it might be worth persevering with him. This could be the final chance for he and Paulinho to prove that they can be of some use to Tottenham.
We’d also give an opportunity to a defender, albeit one in a very different position to Paulinho and Lamela. With Kyle Walker injured, why not through in DeAndre Yedlin at the deep end rather than player Vlad Chiriches or Eric Dier out of position?
Here’s our Spurs side to face Southampton. What’s yours?
