It might seem an odd suggestion to say that Pochettino should drop one of the best right-backs in world football on current form but loyalty and sentiment could come into consideration here.

Deputy full-back Kieran Trippier has played 90 minutes in each of Spurs’ four FA Cup games prior to the semi-final and that could be enough to earn him the chance to start against Chelsea.

One Spurs fan is sat tucking into a bacon butty and a pint of cider here in the Tavern and he agrees that he wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Trippier get the nod this afternoon.
