With an opening Premier League day victory behind us as we welcomed Aston Villa back to the top flight, it’s a different type of test for Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino this Saturday as we make the trip to the Etihad Stadium to face Pep Guardiola’s reigning top flight Champions – Manchester City.

Although we are only one game in, with a 5-0 victory over their own in the last one, they are once again sat pretty at the top of the pile, but with seven sides sharing three points at this incredibly early stage of the season, we have a tougher task than most to make it six points from an available six.

The team selected will likely be the same as the Villa 18, as with the likes of Juan Foyth, Ben Davies and Dele Alli still listed as out injured (until the next proper update), Son Heung-Min continues to be out as he serves his suspension.

Attack as clinically as we did in the last match, at least in terms of how we ended the game, and we’ll definitely cause City some problems – but we all know what they can do.

  • KWP, Foyth, Sanchez, Sessegnon
    Winks N’Dombele Skipp
    Lo Celso Alli Clarke
    Parrott

    Tanganga, Roles, etc – to be fair Pauric there’s quite a bit to be excited about here in terms of youth (top potential IMHO) and then the likes of Dier 25, Son, Lamela, Moura all on 27 and HK10 on 26 reaching their peak year’s soon enough.

    Experience of Lloris 32, Toby 30, Verts 32, Rose 29, Sissoko 30. Nice blend – but we need to keep everyone as close together as possible.

    I don’t include Eriksen because think he’s a gonner unfortunately.

  • As HT added more will come – hopely they live up to the expectation – which is pretty big in a lot of their cases as they appear to be very talented indeed. It’s a pretty young squad to be fair and will only get younger still with new addition’s from the looks of things – chapter 2 of the Poch master plan. BUT going back to Eriksen – we need to learn from our mistakes and put the players on market wages as best possible and that would mean reviewing a lot of contracts at the moment IMHO. Luckily we seem to be learning with Sess on £70k apparently and one of the world’s top teenage earner’s and by buying young we can “exploit” them a bit by paying good but not top wages for the time being – hopefully though when their time comes around they are treated a lot better than poor Chris has been who despite being arguably our 2nd best player over the last 6 years is still stuck on £75k basic when others are on £350k, £400k, £500k and even £600k for doing a similar job in similar position namely providing and scoring goals – which Eriksen did and does in abundance!
