Tottenham team news: Trippier hands Pochettino timely boost

Tottenham Hotspur will want to quickly put the north London derby behind them when they host Southampton at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night.

Spurs were beaten by arch-rivals Arsenal at the weekend and will want to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.

Mauricio Pochettino will look to take advantage of a Southampton side who have just sacked their manager and will have been given a timely boost ahead of the fixture.


According to the club’s official website, Kieran Trippier is fit and available to make his return to the first-team.

The right-back, who is valued at £31.5million by Transfermarkt, had been suffering from a groin injury that saw him miss almost a month’s worth of action.

His return will come at a timely moment, as their defence would have been hit by the suspension that Jan Vertonghen will serve following his red card in the derby.

The Verdict:

As mentioned, Trippier’s return will be a timely boost for Spurs and one that Pochettino will be pleased to have available to him.

The England international has received plenty of criticism for his performances in the past, however, he appears to be a better option than Serge Aurier at the back.

Tottenham will be hoping the defeat to Arsenal does not have any long-term effects on the team and the game against Southampton could be the best opportunity Spurs have to get it out of their system.
