Tottenham Hotspur boss, Mauricio Pochettino, has taken the strange decision to drop two of his best and most established stars this season.
Since the start of the campaign, Jan Vertonghen has not played a single minute, being placed on the bench twice and dropped from the squad completely for the other match.
Christian Eriksen has also only started one match out of the three, coming on as a late sub in the remaining two.
Jermaine Jenas has now labelled Pochettino’s continuing decision to drop them as petty and believes it will cost Spurs a Champions League spot.
