Mauricio Pochettino has a decision to make ahead of today’s match with Manchester City, as Jan Vertonghen faces six weeks on the sidelines.

Pochettino named the same starting XI for the matches against Chelsea and West Brom, but Vertonghen was substituted in the second-half in the 4-0 win over the Baggies.

Ben Davies was his replacement that day and is a contender to continue in the role that he regularly plays in for Wales. Yet this would be a major snub for our left-sided central defender Kevin Wimmer, who deputised for Vertonghen so effectively last season.

A change to a back four is another option, but the 3-4-2-1 formation has been working so well it seems likely to be retained.

Here’s our Tottenham side to face Manchester City, what’s yours?



  1. Good team one that makes sense as I believe Wimmer deserves the start as well. I would only change the formation if we go to a 4-1-4-1 as that would allow Sissoko and Son to start as wingers and allow Alli and Ericksen to remain CAMs

  2. On the Lamela injury is it real and how do you fancy playing Edwards when fit in Lamela’s role? Should we sell EL back to Roma?

  3. Agree with that team ,but if Davies plays instead of Wimmer ,just as good ,because he is a natural
    left back and will have the speed to cover if Rose is caught out of position I.e .to far forward.
