The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to secure a win against APOEL on Wednesday. It has been a very difficult few weeks for the Lilywhites, and whilst three points tonight won’t prove that their barren spell is over, it would certainly be a good place to start.
It won’t be easy for them, though, as the Cypriot side have been able to pick up as many points as Borussia Dortmund this season in Europe, and so Pochettino can’t take the game lightly. In truth, in order to stand the best chances of winning, he needs to make a few changes to his team, and it appears as though there is one player that the Spurs faithful want to see play more than most.
According to a recent poll ran by our landlord, a whopping 84% of Spurs fans want to see Erik Lamela return to the starting XI for the first time since returning from injury a few weeks ago. He’s impressed since returning to fitness, and he’s clearly earned the support of the Tottenham faithful.
It’s no real surprise, of course. Two players that he has to compete with, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, have both struggled so far this season, and they clearly need to have a night off as they look to regain their fitness and form. Lamela would be the perfect replacement.
With his driving runs, crossing and technical ability, he’ll prove to be a fantastic outlet for Pochettino if selected.
