Tottenham Hotspur and Mauricio Pochettino have yet another juggling contest to deal with this week, as they have a number of big games three days apart.
Spurs take on Leicester City tonight in the late Saturday kick off, hoping to pick up all three points away from home.
The Lilywhites then travel to Spain for a Tuesday night game against Barcelona, a tie they will likely have to win in order to gain Champions League knockout qualification.
It looks as if Kieran Trippier will miss both of these crucial games as he suffered a reoccurrence of a groin injury on his first game back against Southampton.
This leaves Serge Aurier as the only real senior option at right back, and heading into a busy Christmas period, this is less than ideal.
However, Spurs must not forget about young Kyle Walker-Peters, because if you don’t use him now as a squad rotator, then why was he not sent out on loan to progress.
A tough away trip against Leicester could be the perfect game to bed him into if he is to play a part over the holiday season.
Poch chose to keep him at the club, now he should use him.
