The Guardian predict that Pochettino will recall these two midfielders against Arsenal


Tottenham Hotspur face a tough away trip to the Emirates today as they play Arsenal in the first North London Derby of the season.

Pochettino will have a number of selection decisions to make ahead of the NLD, from front to back, with injuries and the transfer window disrupting his squad’s preparations.

Poch has not selected Jan Vertonghen yet this season, dropping him to the bench two times and from the squad completely on one occasion.

Christian Eriksen has also only started one match so far this season, while Dele Alli is yet to play due to an injury.

Giovani Lo Celso has appeared twice from the bench, but has not yet been handed his full debut by Pochettino.

While, Serge Aurier has not featured in pre or early season at all and Kyle Walker-Peters is out injured, leaving an issue at right-back.

The Guardian have predicted that Poch will recall the likes of Aurier, Eriksen, and Dele to the starting line up today.

Their full predicted XI is:


Rose, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Aurier;

Winks, Sissoko;

Son, Dele, Eriksen;
