Mauricio Pochettino has been left with few options ahead of one of the biggest matches in the calendar for Spurs fans this weekend, the North London Derby at the Emirates.
Spurs would love to put their poor form behind them with a positive result away to their arch-rivals, but Poch may have to do so without a recognised right-back.
Kieran Trippier was sold to Atletico Madrid in the summer, leaving just Kyle Walker-Peters and Serge Aurier at the club.
The former has been the regular starter this season, but picked up an injury in a poor performance against Newcastle last weekend.
Aurier has yet to appear this season and The Guardian report that he is unlikely to feature against Arsenal, with Moussa Sissoko or Eric Dier tipped as makeshift options.
I for one am thrilled that this has happened so soon in the season for two main reasons.
Number one – it proves to Poch and Levy that they simply must go out and invest decent money in a new right-back, as the current options are not good or deep enough.
Secondly, I also think that out of all the players at Spurs right now, Moussa Sissoko has the potential to be an amazing right-back option. He has the pace, the fitness, the strength, the aerial ability, the drive, and the defensive qualities to succeed there.
It would also then free up a spare spot in central midfield, where Spurs are currently stacked with the likes of Ndombele, Winks, Dier, Dele, Eriksen, Lo Celso, Skipp, and more.
