Tottenham Hotspur head into tomorrow’s North London derby with a tactical decision to make.

Kyle Walker-Peters has started each of Tottenham’s opening three Premier League matches this season but was forced off late in the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United last weekend with a hamstring injury.

Pochettino had placed his faith in the 22-year-old to take up the starting berth following the departure of Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid earlier in the summer.

With Waker-Peters sidelined for the trip to the Emirates, Pochettino must decide whether he looks to bring back Serge Aurier back into the side as the only other established right-back available.

Aurier has yet to feature this season and was linked with a potential exit ahead of the European transfer window closing on Monday (Le10Sport).

Another option for the Spurs boss would be to revert to a back three with Vertonghen slotting in alongside Alderweireld and Sanchez while Moussa Sissoko occupies the right wing-back role.

Here’s what Walker-Peters had to say on Twitter after missing the trip to the Emirates.
