Few clubs in Europe, let alone the Premier League, boast the same level of depth as Tottenham Hotspur on the defensive flanks. For the left, Mauricio Pochettino has Ben Davies and Danny Rose to choose from for any given fixture, while Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier have rotated the spot on the opposite flank this season.
Accordingly, however, that leaves Pochettino with an important decision to make for every game, but especially those with the magnitude of the visit to Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium this Saturday. With that in mind, we passed on the responsibility to Spurs fans earlier this week – asking them whether Trippier or Aurier should start on the right of defence.
And our poll revealed that Tottenham fans have mixed feelings about the issue. Perhaps because summer signing Aurier, who Transfermarkt value at £13.5million, started against Brighton in midweek, 54% of those who voted want Trippier to start against the Citizens instead.
