Tottenham fans have been discussing one of Mauricio Pochettino’s biggest selection headaches, and they are completely split on who should start at left back.
Pochettino handed a huge boost of confidence to Danny Rose on Monday night, starting the 28 year-old at Old Trafford.
Rose made an awful mistake early on that was not punished by Romelu Lukaku, but had a solid performance outside of that, and has certainly swayed a few fans back into his camp.
“For me over the last four or five years we’ve worked together, Monday is probably the biggest thing he’s done for me,” said Rose after the 3-0 win.
Of course, Ben Davies was exceptional during Rose’s absence last season, grabbing two goals and six assists and improving week in week out.
Pochettino now has the luxury of having two top class full backs on each flank, and plenty of fans are calling for Rose to get the permanent nod.
Several fans would rather stick with Davies though, perhaps due to Rose’s efforts to force a move away from North London last summer.
So, Spurs fans, who do you think should start at left back? See what your fellow fans are saying down below…
Lets hope the revival of 15/16 Rose happens, love the guy.

My issue with this is he would be just as quick to be a public dick again. Whereas Davies quietly goes on about his job and has been one of our more consistent performers.

I like Danny, but why he must talk to the press so much. Concentrate on your football old pal

Hopefully Rose knuckles down now and appreciates the life line Poch and the coaches have given him

Both Davies and Rose are competitive choices but I still sense they are keeping the spot warm for someone like Sessegnon🤔

15/16 Rose please. He was absolutely immense back then.
