The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that their side will be able to beat West Brom later today. The Lilywhites are still yet to confirm their place in the top-four, though a win will go a long way to putting them in the driving seat as the season comes to a close.
Naturally, then, it’s important that Mauricio Pochettino picks the best team to get the job done later today, and one facet of the team that is certainly up for consideration is the midfield.
Spurs’ midfield is full to the brim with quality and talent, and that makes Pochettino’s decision a difficult one. Mousa Dembele’s creativity will be important, especially against a West Brom side that is likely to sit back and defend, but the position next to him is far less certain.
Pochettino is likely to choose between Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama, and that’s certainly not an easy duo to decide between.
We recently polled fans on that very topic, and the results – which can be seen below – were interesting to say the least.
It seems that for fans, Victor Wanyama is a more popular choice – with 65% of supporters voting in favour of the Kenyan. Contrastingly, just 35% of fans voted in favour of Eric Dier – with the Englishman clearly not impressing fans as much recently as he has in the past.
Wanyama is as solid as they come, and whilst he’s had to settle for more of a bit-part role this season, that shouldn’t take anything away from him. Dier, meanwhile, hasn’t been at his best this season, and so it’s not a huge surprise to see some fans turn on him.
In truth, neither player would do Tottenham any harm, though it will be interesting to see who Pochettino will go for.
