The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a dominant performance from their side against Borussia Dortmund this evening. Though they’ve had a great campaign so far, a disappointing defeat to Arsenal on Saturday has really brought the mood down amongst our resident Lilywhites.
Still, their Champions League campaign is going very well indeed, and tonight’s game could be their biggest yet. A win could see them secure progression in first place in their group, likely giving them a very favourable draw in the next round. That being said, Dortmund won’t step aside for the English team, and so Mauricio Pochettino still has his work cut out for him.
His team selection, then, is very important – and it appears as though the Tottenham faithful want to see at least one major change from the side that faced Arsenal. Our landlord recently ran a poll regarding Serge Aurier, with a simple question: Should he start against Dortmund?
Tottenham fans responded in their droves, and they were nearly unanimous in their opinion. A whopping 92% of fans are calling for him to start against the German outfit, with just 8% of fans voting to the contrary.
Given Tottenham’s poor defensive display over the weekend, it’s no real surprise. Offering electric pace, defensive dynamism and fantastic passing, the Frenchman is perfect on either the left or the right.
