Tottenham laboured to a 0-0 draw in their last outing at Wembley, and Mauricio Pochettino must ring the changes to get his Premier League title bid back on track when his team visit West Ham on Saturday.

Tottenham sit in fifth place in the Premier League, five points behind the two Manchester teams, but they’ve only won two league games so far.
