Spurs are without goalkeeper Hugo Lloris through suspension and he was coy on who would replace him, suggesting Michel Vorm, Paulo Gazzaniga and Alfie Whiteman all had a 33 percent chance of playing.
However, he also reserved special praise for Gazzaniga. The Argentine has performed well when called upon this season and Pochettino stated the stopper has the ‘potential to be a top’ goalkeeper.
He also confirmed that Dele Alli is fit for the game and would be capable of playing the full 90 minutes if called for.
Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama are out injured, along with Jan Vertonghen.
Marc Overmars has handed Tottenham a transfer boost as he admits his current club Ajax will struggle to keep hold of Tottenham transfer targets Matthijs De Ligt and Frenkie De Jong beyond the current campaign.
He explained to Fox Sports, as reported by Football.London, that the pair are at ‘such a high level’ that Ajax ‘cannot keep them’.
Ajax will not sell wither player in January, but could consider a sale at the end of the season.
Barcelona have also been linked with the pair, whilst Manchester City are believed to be keen on De Jong.
