1. Kieran Trippier
Trippier has put in two fine performances in the past week, impressing against Swansea and again at Wembley on Tuesday night against Barnsley.
However, two full 90-minutes up the flanks of Wembley are tiring, and even though he probably won Tottenham the game last night, he should sit out the Premier League game on Saturday.
It’s time to give new signing Serge Aurier his first start in the Premier League after 90 minutes against Borussia Dortmund that hinted Pochettino has brought another world-class player to the club.
It’s no slight on Trippier, who can then start in the next Champions League tie against Apoel Nicosia the following Tuesday.
