Tottenham face PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League on Wednesday, knowing they need to win to keep their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages alive.
After losses to Inter and Barcelona, Spurs are point-less from their two games and face a PSV side that currently top the Eredivisie with 27 points from nine games.
With all that in mind, here’s the team Mauricio Pochettino could select for the trip to the Netherlands.
1. Goalkeeper & Defenders
Hugo Lloris (GK) – A rush of blood to the head from the Frenchman saw Tottenham concede ridiculously early on against Barcelona, but he put in a brilliant performance against West Ham and should be eyeing a clean sheet on Wednesday.
Serge Aurier (RB) – Kieran Trippier has played a lot of football so far this season and he could be rested in favour of Ivory Coast international Aurier.
Toby Alderweireld (CB) – Like Lloris, Alderweireld was in good form against West Ham, showing he can step up in Jan Vertonghen’s absence.
Davinson Sanchez (CB) – One of the best young defenders in Europe, Sanchez has proved to be one of the most reliable players in Pochettino’s side.
Ben Davies (LB) – With Danny Rose a doubt due to injury, Ben Davies should start at left back and will be tasked with keeping Hirving Lozano quiet.
Eric Dier (CM) – The England international has been a regular fixture in Pochettino’s side this season and is expected to start again here.
Mousa Dembele (CM) – Introduced as a substitute against West Ham, Dembele should start if Spurs want to control the midfield on Wednesday.
Son Heung-min (RM) – Son has had a quiet start to the season for Spurs, failing to register a goal or an assist in the Premier League, but could start ahead of the in-form Erik Lamela.
Christian Eriksen (CAM) – Tottenham have missed the Dane’s creative spark through his injury absence and his link-up play with Harry Kane could decide Wednesday’s game.
Lucas Moura (LM) – The goals have dried up for Moura after his electric start to the season and he’ll be desperate to net against PSV.
He hasn’t scored since the 4-2 Barcelona defeat but was in fine form for England during their 3-2 win over Spain.
