Tottenham travel to Leicester City for a Premier League clash on Saturday night, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection with a crunch Champions League match against Barcelona just around the corner.
Kieran Trippier is unavailable after limping off with a groin injury towards the end of Wednedsay’s victory over Southampton. Serge Aurier will come in at right-back and Ben Davies is likely to replace Danny Rose on the left.
Moussa Sissoko was rested against Southampton so he will almost certainly return to the team this weekend. Harry Winks will probably drop out for Sissoko, who will make up a three-man midfield with Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen.
Erik Lamela is still sidelined through injury, but Pochettino still has a selection headache in the attacking positions. We think the in-form Heung-Min Son will be on the bench to ensure he is fresh for Barcelona, with Dele Alli and Lucas Moura joining Harry Kane in attack.
Here’s our predicted line-up to face Leicester – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
This is an important match for us to win to stay ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea. So, we should field a strong team and if we do have a comfortable win over Leicester at some time in the game, then we could substitute a few good players in order to rest them for the Barcelona match..
