Tottenham fans want Vertonghen or Sessegnon instead of Rose at left-back while Davies is out

Ben Davies has told journalists that his injury “doesn’t look good”.

Tottenham Hotspur fans have been debating who should be playing at left-back in Ben Davies’ absence – and Danny Rose is not a popular option.

Davies told journalists (via @jonathandveal83): “It doesn’t look good. It will be a while”. With the Welshman set for a period on the sidelines, who should Spurs pick to replace him?

The obvious answer would be Danny Rose. The 29-year-old was Mauricio Pochettino’s first pick in this position. But his form has been worrying this season and Spurs fans don’t seem to want him in the team.

Instead, a number of fans have been calling for Jan Vertonghen or Ryan Sessegnon in this position. With Davies out, they want to keep Rose on the bench and give an opportunity to a less obvious option.

Vertonghen is just recovering from an injury and he is usually a centre-back. But he can operate at left-back, too, especially if Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez continue in central defence.

Sessegnon is another option but he has had his injury issues this season. Plus, the 19-year-old is still very young and he likes to play on the wing.

Here are some Tottenham fans discussing who should start at left-back with Davies out injured.
