Tottenham Hotspur may have had a superb transfer window, bringing in the likes of Jack Clarke, Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon, and Giovani Lo Celso, however, there is still a big gap in the squad.
Spurs decided to sell their first-choice right-back in Kieran Trippier this summer, much like they did with Kyle Walker a few seasons back.
And, again like Walker, Tottenham decided that their new right-back is already at the club, but who will Pochettino go for.
It seems likely that Kyle Walker-Peters will start at least the first couple of games, as Serge Aurier has not yet featured in pre-season.
Juan Foyth would be banned for the matches even if he hadn’t picked up a nasty ankle injury in pre-season.
Despite Pochettino’s choices being an inexperienced academy graduate, a 21-year-old centre-back, and a hot-headed Aurier, he seems strangely excited by it all.
The Spurs gaffer claims that he loves to challenge to create new players (Football London): “You know me, I am so brave, we can create players who can play in different positions. We have Kyle Walker-Peters and we try to find the best solution and I love the challenge to try and create that dynamic so that we don’t miss players.”
