After the sale of Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid in the summer, many wondered who would set up for Spurs in the right-back position.
It seemed as if Pochettino was going to put his faith in young Kyle Walker-Peters at the start of the season after the full-back started the first three Premier League games.
However, after the academy graduate was injured in his third match, a host of other players came in to give the position a go, including Davinson Sanchez, Moussa Sissoko, and Serge Aurier.
Pochettino settled on the latter as his first-choice right-back for the past few weeks, but in that time Aurier has been sent off, given away a penalty, and had a horror show against Bayern.
Despite returning from injury and playing in the Carabao Cup for Spurs, Walker-Peters has missed the last seven matchday squads under Poch (Transfer Markt).
Ex-Spurs man, Paul Robinson, believes the club are missing KWP (Football Insider): “Kyle Walker-Peters has been a miss for us as he is an outstanding full-back, but I think the cover and options we have behind him, we could have done with Kieran Trippier sticking around a bit longer.”
