6-goal winger out? The selection dilemma facing Pochettino for Inter Milan clash

Tottenham face Inter Milan tonight. But which three attacking midfielders should Mauricio Pochettino pick to start?

Mauricio Pochettino has a fully fit attacking midfield department to select his players from ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s crucial Champions League match against Inter Milan tonight.

Spurs host Inter Milan knowing that they must win to keep their qualification hopes alive.

And Pochettino has a real selection dilemma – albeit a pleasant one – to make ahead of this game.

Which three players should he select in the attacking midfield line behind Harry Kane?

All six options have been impressive in recent weeks and there is no simple answer to this question.

Dele Alli has bounced back from injury impressively, netting the opener against Chelsea last weekend to stake his claim for a starting spot against Inter Milan.

Son Heung-Min was perhaps further down the pecking order but after causing problems all game against the Blues and scoring a magnificent solo goal, he might get a start.

But the South Korea international might be dropped to recall one of Lucas Moura or Erik Lamela.

Both players have been in fine form this season with Brazilian Lucas hitting five goals and Argentinian Lamela scoring six times.

Even Moussa Sissoko has put his name in the hat with some fine performances lately since being recalled to the side.

Pochettino’s best trio, though, probably consists of Alli, Eriksen and Son, who were influential against Chelsea.

Lamela, Sissoko and Lucas provide excellent options from the bench.
