Tottenham boss faces dilemma ahead of Arsenal clash, warns Townsend
Andros Townsend says Mauricio Pochettino faces a tough selection problem ahead of Saturday's trip to Arsenal
Mauricio Pochettino faces a tough selection problem ahead of Saturday’s trip to north London rivals Arsenal, according to Andros Townsend.
Pochettino watched his Spurs side come from behind to book their place in the fourth round of the League Cup with a 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.
The manager has got a selection dilemma
And Townsend feels that some of the Lilywhites’ younger players, who were given a run-out in the cup clash, have underlined their talent ahead of Saturday’s derby showdown at Emirates Stadium.
“It’s very important [we won tonight]”, Townsend told Sky Sports. “The performances have been OK, but the results haven’t been there and it was very important to get the win.
“The manager made a lot of changes today, but the lads that played showed they are good enough to be selected on Saturday.
“So the manager has got a selection dilemma.”
