Pochettino must start Sissoko and Aurier against Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur shocked everyone by beating Chelsea with ease last weekend as they’ve now clawed themselves back into the Premier League title race.

Spurs may not have been too impressive in the Champions League this season, but they’re certainly making up for this in domestic competitions as they continue to assert their dominance.

Tottenham Hotspur will travel to the Emirates to face Arsenal in what will be the first North London derby of the current Premier League campaign later on today. The Gunners managed to secure an impressive victory against Bournemouth last weekend, so it won’t be easy for the Lilywhites.

Therefore, Pochettino must get his team selection right by selecting these TWO Tottenham players…

MOUSSA SISSOKO

The midfielder was everywhere against Chelsea, winning the ball back over and over again to put the Blues on the back foot and Spurs on the attack. He managed to put the ball on a plate for Kane to score Spurs’ fourth in the second half but the striker wasn’t able to finish as he scooped it over.

So, Mauricio Pochettino has no choice but to gift him a place in the starting lineup after witnessing one of this best performances in a Tottenham shirt last time out.

SERGE AURIER

The Ivorian put in another impressive display against Chelsea. He dealt well with the Blues’ raids down his flank and managed to keep things tight, despite being at fault slightly for Olivier Giroud’s goal.

Nevertheless, with Kieran Trippier set to miss today’s all-important North London derby, Pochettino simply has to reward Serge Aurier for his fine performances in the side recently.
