The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to the return of the Premier League…
It has been a solid few weeks for the Lilywhites, and in truth the international break came at a bad time. Mauricio Pochettino’s team were in a good run of form, and the supporters in the pub are hoping that their fine performances will continue despite the short break.
Tottenham’s opponents this weekend are Bournemouth, and given that they have struggled somewhat this season, the Lilywhites should really be looking to win comfortably.
Pochettino can’t take the game lightly, though, and so his team selection needs to be spot on. One dilemma that he has to deal with is who he is going to pick at right-back. Kieran Trippier deputised well for Serge Aurier in the last game, but with the Frenchman in contention this week, should he come straight back in?
We couldn’t come to a decision in the Transfer Tavern, and it doesn’t appear as though the Tottenham faithful have been able to either. We recently polled supporters on who Poch should pick, and it was a very close result. Just 4% separates each side, with 52% calling on Aurier to play, whilst 48% want Kieran Trippier to continue in the role.
It’s certainly a tough decision for Pochettino, and the Tottenham fans have been no help. In truth, both are decent options, and so Pochettino won’t be worried either way. One thing is for sure, though – a big group of fans will be disappointed whatever the choice.
