Report: The staggering number of games Poch has gone without naming unchanged XI

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, still looks as though he doesn’t know what his best XI is this season in North London.

The Argentine gaffer has already named five different players at right-back alone this season in Serge Aurier, Kyle Walker-Peters, Davinson Sanchez, Moussa Sissoko, and Juan Foyth.

In terms of centre-back partnerships, no two players have formed a successful bond this season, despite Poch mixing and matching between Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, and Eric Dier.

The likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, and Harry Winks have also been in and out of the side, with new boys Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso only now starting to make an impact after injury.

When you compare this to league leaders Liverpool, who name similar teams each and every week, it is easy to see why Tottenham are struggling.

In fact, the Daily Mail have now revealed that Pochettino hasn’t named an unchanged XI in the past 94 games.

This is a stark contrast to the team Poch had in 2016/17, when he would play a similar XI each week, bringing the Lilywhites much success and consistency.
