Tottenham Hotspur face their biggest game of the season on Sunday when they face Arsenal in the North London derby.

A trip to the Emirates is always the first match which many Spurs fans look for when the Premier League fixtures are announced.

However, the game comes at a difficult time for Mauricio Pochettino.  The Spurs boss recently admitted that his squad are unsettled with the European transfer window remaining open until September 2nd (Sky Sports).

Pochettino has a decision to make who he will start at right-back this weekend, Kyle Walker-Peters has started all three top flight matches but was forced off in the defeat to Newcastle with a hamstring problem.

According to the Telegraph, Pochettino is already considering alternative options with Serge Aurier’s future still in doubt with the club prepared to consider offers for the only other fit right-back.

Moussa Sissoko and Eric Dier are both potential candidates to fill the void if called upon.

Dier is yet to feature this season, which could make Sissoko the logical choice given his workhorse-like stamina to get up and down the pitch.
