Mauricio Pochettino has two main formations in his Tottenham playbook, both of which we’ve seen in action already this season – 4-2-3-1 and 3-4-3. Thus, any given Spurs clash raises the inevitable question of which system to use.
We posed that exact question to Tottenham fans earlier this week, asking which setup Pochettino should utilise when the Hammers travel to east London on Saturday to take on bitter rivals West Ham.
And according to our poll, the majority think Pochettino should set out his side using 3-4-3 which, so far this season, has resulted in three goals scored and four points from a possible six in the Premier League.
Recent history tells us that’s probably the right call. Tottenham’s last two defeats in east London, both by 1-0 scorelines, saw Spurs apply 4-2-3-1 against West Ham’s 3-4-3 – the formation they look set to use again this weekend after consecutive clean sheets.
But is a switch to 3-4-3 enough to end Spurs’ losing run on the Irons’ patch? Let us know by commenting below…
