The build-up has begun for the Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern ahead of their side’s clash with Leicester City this evening. It’s sure to be a great meeting between two sides that are at the top of their game, though the Lilywhites’ faithful are convinced that their side is going to win.
Ahead of the game, Pochettino’s team selection has come in for some big debate in the Transfer Tavern, with fans unsure as to who he will pick.
Several players, like Harry Kane and Dele Alli, are sure to start, but what of Tottenham’s other players? Particularly in the midfield, there is a lot of room for rotation, and it seems that one player that the Tottenham faithful would like to see start is Mousa Dembele.
According to a recent poll ran by our landlord, a whopping 95% of polled Spurs fans have voted in favour of Dembele starting the game, meaning that they’re hoping for Pochettino to make a change to his starting eleven.
Dembele has found game time hard to come by so far this year, with Harry Winks often preferred, but it seems as though the Belgian is wanted this time around. His experience, of course, could be key, whilst Winks could also do with a rest.
He’ll add a lot of quality to the midfield if he is selected, with his passing and ball retention crucial for the Lilywhites last term.
