Tottenham Hotspur face a defensive reshuffle this weekend as we get ready to face Stoke City without two key players.
Davinson Sanchez has been banned for three games after he picked up a red card against Watford last weekend. There is still a debate on whether he should have gone for that reckless challenge, but all that is history now and Mauricio Pochettino has to cope with his absence, starting with the game against Stoke.
What Pochettino should also cope with is the absence of Toby Alderweireld. The Belgian defender remains out of the team due to an injury. In their absence, the manager may have to put Eric Dier in the middle of the defence to partner Jan Vertonghen. Also out of the game is Victor Wanyama with a knee injury.
I feel this is a tough ask for the manager as he prepares to get our squad out of the recent rut and get back to winning ways. We have already slipped down the table and are now at 6th place after picking a mere two points from the last four league matches.
The fans think that there are other options available for the manager and have taken to Twitter to announce what Pochettino should do. We have picked some of the interesting tweets for you.
