Tottenham have lost three games in a row thanks in no small part to some shocking defending, so is it time to bring Victor Wanyama back into the fold?

Spurs have lost three games in a row for the first time in Mauricio Pochettino’s tenure, and while the attacking play hasn’t exactly been electric, the defending has been truly shambolic.

Watford scored twice off crosses into the box, and both of Liverpool’s goals came from sloppy play from Pochettino’s side.

Mauro Icardi volleyed home wonderfully for Inter Milan on Tuesday, but there was no one within a mile of him, and the winning goal was yet another set-piece failure.

There’s no doubt Pochettino has some of the world’s best centre backs at his disposal, but the midfield is weak, and Wanyama could potentially fix that.

The 27-year-old Kenyan international missed the start of the season through injury, but was back on the bench at the San Siro.

His physicality, reading of the game and work rate could help plug the leaks in midfield, and avoid this small blip becoming an absolute crisis, and one which could cost Pochettino his job.

So, Tottenham fans, would you start Wanyama at Brighton? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
