Mauricio Pochettino Spurs to replace Unai Emery
Pochettino Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur take on Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.

And Pochettino will be expecting his team to pull up their socks after a dismal show vs Chelsea on Wednesday.

The Lilywhites lost their London Derby to Chelsea 2-0 and for the first time this season, Spurs looked rattled as they failed to come up with an answer for Sarri’s tactics.

Spurs news vs Arsenal:

Here’s are all the injuries that Pochettino will have to deal with before Saturday’s clash vs Arsenal:

Dele Alli: The England international is out with a hamstring injury and he is not expected to be available for the North London Derby.

Eric Dier: The midfielder is suffering from tonsilitis and will miss the game vs Arsenal.

Jan Vertonghen: Vertonghen missed the game vs Chelsea due to a hip injury but reports suggest that he should recover in time.

Possible changes to the first XI: Danny Rose started on the bench vs Chelsea but the left-back should replace Ben Davies on Saturday.

If Vertonghen does return then Pochettino will revert to his preferred back-three meaning Trippier and Rose will play as wing-backs.

Eric Lamela should also drop down to the bench which means Son and Harry Kane will play up front.

Spurs news: Lilywhites’ predicted XI vs Arsenal

First XI: Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Tripper, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son, Harry Kane.
