Opinion: The young starting XI I want to see play against Bayern in the Champions League

Tottenham Hotspur face a visit to Bayern Munich next in the Champions League, as they look to recover from that embarrassing 7-2 defeat last time the two sides met.

Spurs are in good form under Jose Mourinho, but it is unlikely he will risk any of his senior first-team stars against the German side.

Tottenham and Bayern have both already qualified for the knockout rounds of the Champions League, with their positions in the group cemented at second and first respectively.

Therefore, this final fixture is essentially a nothing game, meaning that Mourinho can use it to test out youngsters and fringe players if he desires.

I would love to see Mourinho these players a game:

Alfie Whiteman in goal, with Paulo Gazzaniga given a well-deserved rest. I would like to see Kyle Walker-Peters back in at right-back, as well as Danny Rose on the other side to get him some minutes.

In the centre of defence, a pairing of Japhet Tanganga and Juan Foyth would be interesting to see, with Oliver Skipp and Victor Wanyama ahead of them in central midfield.

Young Troy Parrott should lead the line, with Ryan Sessegnon, Giovani Lo Celso, and Christian Eriksen behind him.

Have something to tell us about this article?

    • Why? It’s a nothing game? Essentially a friendly. He should use it to Spurs’ advantage and get youngsters some minutes on the big stage
