With the Premier League title seemingly out of reach, the next three games will give us the chance to see which competition Mauricio Pochettino will prioritise for the remainder of the season.

Tottenham play Belgian side Gent in the Europa League either side of a tricky FA Cup tie at Fulham.

We start with a trip to Belgium. With no indication of the kind of team Pochettino will select, we can only speculate that he will go with a mix of first team favourites, fringe players and youngsters in order to pick up some momentum while giving certain squad members some much needed game time.

Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela are all still out injured. Here’s the XI we think he could go with. What do you think?

Spurs XI vs Gent







  1. Jansen Son
    Sissoko Winks Wanyama Nkodou
    Davies Wimmer Toby Trippier

    Son able to move anywhere across the front line or run beyond Jansen and stretch their defence.
    Sissoko able to protect Davies a bit more than others have in recent weeks. Wimmer given another chance to prove he can step up.
    Nkodou can make space for Trippier’s crosses to find Jansen and play to his strengths, instead of having to come back all the time and use his muscle to hold up play

    • The next 3 games are all Cup games and gives us a vital chance to rest some players.

      Lloris, I’d only play in tonight’s game, providing we earn a lead to take with us to Wembley. Fulham I’d give Lopez a chance and maybe him or Vorm next Thurs. Toby the same.
      Nkodou and Jansen need a chance, I’d start them in all 3 games, give them confidence and give Kane a rest.
      Hopefully over the next week one or more of Jan, Rose or Lamela will be able to get some minutes again and we can start another decent run and keep ourselves in the hunt for Champions League again next year or hopefully more if Cheatski stumble
