During the quiet international break, Football London’s Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold decided to pick his strongest Spurs XI, and of course it hasn’t been met with full agreement by the fans on Twitter.
I’ve decided to pick my strongest Spurs XI and bench when everyone is fit for Pochettino to choose from. I actually found the bench more of a nightmare. Before the onslaught begins, I do provide reasons for those decisions which will no doubt upset people. https://t.co/p7Ns3qdAF1

One position in particular appeared to be questioned by those supporters who did respond, with the journalist choosing to select Kyle Walker-Peters ahead of the likes of Juan Foyth and Serge Aurier for the right-back role.
It is a spot that is very much up for grabs following the summer departure of Kieran Trippier, with Walker-Peters getting the nod in the opening three Premier League matches of the season before suffering an injury which then kept him out against Arsenal.
Davinson Sanchez started at full-back on that occasion, with Aurier an unused substitute at the Emirates.
Despite the fact the Ivory Coast international is yet to play a single minute this term, it appears as though the majority of Tottenham fans would like to see him given a chance if the following retorts are anything to go by.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
I’d play aurier. I think Lo celso will have an impact on that 11 and put some serious pressure on alli and eriksen if they don’t buck their ideas up. Serious competition when all fit and firing. Same with Son and Lucas.

Aurier over Walker-Peters

It’s unproven but it puts our best players in their best positions. Harsh on Winks, Dele, Sissoko, KWP but I want to destroy teams. https://t.co/oshxDLMg7S https://t.co/DsWtoPVtDU #Spurs_v_anyone via @spurs_fl
