Tottenham should omit defender Juan Foyth against Arsenal

Tottenham’s fixture away to Arsenal is looming and they travel to their north London rivals on Sunday.

Spurs go into the fixture on the back of six consecutive wins across all competitions and are currently third in the Premier League table.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has a huge selection dilemma ahead of the fixture, especially in his defence as they look to keep out in-form Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The North London club have used Toby Alderweireld and Juan Foyth to great effect in the last three consecutive league matches, but senior figure Jan Vertonghen impressed on his return in midweek during the win over Inter Milan.

Foyth has impressed on his promotion to the senior side and showed his maturity in the win over rivals Chelsea.

The 20-year-old centre-back certainly has the technical ability to succeed against Arsenal, but he’s still a youngster improving his game and it would be a high pressure situation to throw him into.

His time in a Spurs shirt will come based on his huge potential, but it makes sense for the £8million signing (Daily Mail) to remain on the bench at the weekend.
