The 4-0 win over Crystal Palace yesterday was just what the doctor ordered for Tottenham after the international break.
Spurs haven’t made the best of starts to the season but with the transfer market now shut and a decent run of fixtures coming up, they would be aiming to build some momentum.
The performance against Palace should give them confidence going into a busy schedule of fixtures. The game against Palace the first of 7 that the Lilywhites will play over the next three weeks.
With several players now back from injury, Tottenham had an extremely strong bench yesterday with the likes of Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, Tanguy Ndombele, and Ben Davies on it.
Speaking in the post-match press conference, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino declared that we can expect to see a lot of squad rotation over the coming days.
After he was quizzed, the Argentine asked journalists not to question him over his team selection when certain players invariably miss out on certain matches.
Football.London quotes Pochettino as saying, “I don’t care if there are injury worries because we are going to rotate anyway because we are after going to play Saturday and then in the Carabao Cup, many games.
“Of course be ready, because I’m going to rotate the squad and the team and try to be creative on Tuesday and ask me not always the same questions always about when some players are not in the squad or team or this player is playing and not another. Please, please.”

The Spurs boss is clearly fed up of the repeated questions he gets regarding his team selection. While the squad strength in certain positions was a matter of worry last season, with with the additions we have made this summer, we can expect to make changes to the side and not see too much of a drop in performance levels.
