Leicester City have started the season in a way that Spurs can only dream of. Two games, two wins. Five points ahead of a Tottenham side that are in so many ways look as if they are still in pre-season.

Once again Mauricio Pochettino is under pressure to pick a team that can win a competitive Premier League game while lacking options in key positions.

With only Andros Townsend injured, Pochettino at least has most of his squad to choose from. Hugo Lloris will start in goal, with Kyle Walker, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen in front of him. Ben Davies has played well enough at left-back but there is a major argument for the pacy Danny Rose to return.

In midfield there is another dilemma. Eric Dier is not the long term solution but played pretty well against Stoke, as did Ryan Mason before he was replaced by Nabil Bentaleb. Should Bentaleb be restored to the side? On current form Dier and Mason probably deserve the nod.

We’re not convinced by Mousa Dembele on the right of the attacking midfield, but with Townsend injured and Erik Lamela having played terribly last week, he will probably line up with Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli, with Alex Pritchard reading and waiting among the substitutes.

As we saw against Stoke, there is also no alternative for Harry Kane up front, though Clinton Njie is likely to be given a place on the bench.



    • Thank god someone else sees the desperate need for trippier to replace walker. He is at fault for every single mistake and goal against. How no one mentions his constant positioning mistakes and lack of service to Kane is beyond my understanding. If speed was everything then Yedlin would start. I may only suggest Pritchard over Clinton this week with Clinton coming off the bench in his first outing.

      • Also, Mason played great last week, but his inability to finish chances has to give way to Dele soon. The kid is the real deal

  1. Lloris
    Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertongen, Rose
    Dembele (tough defense but no creation), Mason
    Pritchard, Eriksen, Chadli

  2. we should give harry winks a game. he looks better than chadli and lamella. we should without doubt try to sign yarmolenko. right now on paper and on the pitch we are a poor team. boring players with no leader or skills that make you want to go over there and pay pots of money to watch these over paid show ponys. get real Daniel levy. because if you don’t your new 60’000 stadium will have no fans sitting in your over priced seats. enough of buying cheap and young we need proven players not 21 year old show ponys.

  3. Daniel levy and enic have taken Tottenham hotspur away from my life. enough is enough. joke of a football club. top 4 really lol. jokers

  4. Loris
    Trippier, Toby, verts,rose
    Dembele, alli,
    Njie, Erickson, Pritchard

    I would love to see spurs get in Yarmelenko and a bloody good defensive midfielder.

  5. Same as last week but swap bentaleb for Mason and Rose for Davies.

    Missing Rose those two games was rough.

    Enic IN. Because who remembers the times immediately before them.

  6. ……………….loris……………….




    Im a big eriksen fan but I feel he is massively underperformance of late warrant a change… And chadli scores goals. The

    Need Eriksen deeper more vision than the others dembele takes to long on the ball could do better up the field get the ball into his feet they will have to foul him to stop him .
