Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to cap off their wonderful Christmas with a home win on Boxing Day today.
Spurs host Bournemouth in the Premier League, and will be full of confidence off the back of three straight wins in the competition.
Pochettino’s men saw off Southampton and Burnley on the build up to Christmas, before dismantling Everton at Goodison park on Sunday, beating them 6-2.
The manager has rotated the squad once again for today’s fixtures, something that he has done all throughout the hectic holiday season.
Danny Rose and Kyle Walker-Peters come in for Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier in the full back positions, with Juan Foyth stepping in for Davinson Sanchez.
Lucas also replaces the injured Dele Alli, who was forced off at half time against Everton after a horror challenge from Jordan Pickford.
Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld, Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, Christian Eriksen, Heung Min Son, and Harry Kane make up the rest of the starting eleven.
Some Spurs fans have reacted on Twitter to the team announcement:
#THFC: Lloris (C), Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Foyth, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Lucas, Son, Kane.

Where’s Dele ???

Stronger than I thought. Pleased that he’s kept Sissoko and Sonny in, and very good to have Rose on the wing again! Hope Dele knock ain’t too serious, COYS

Strong team and good to see Sissoko start again…never thought I’d say that a year ago! Fair play to him, he’s been brilliant #COYS

Hi lads, you seem to have made a typo here. You don’t expect me to believe KWP is actually getting a start, do you?

No we don’t want Lucas and Kane together
