Mauricio Pochettino, the boss of Tottenham Hotspur is going to need to keep an eye on the clash of Champions League with Barcelona while selecting the team for facing Leicester City.
The match of Spur on Tuesday is going to be a must-win encounter at Camp Nou. As a matter of the manager is going to need the best players to be as fresh as they can be. Pochettino has admitted that he plans on resting Harry Kane and this striker is going to be assessed prior to the match at King Power Stadium in order to find out how fresh he is.
In case, he is placed at the bench then Fernando Llorente might make a start in his first Premier League of the season. However, the question is whether Pochettino will really be able to do with the primary striker for the tough game against the Foxes.
The problems of injury for Argentine as Kieran Trippier, Erik Lamela, Juan Foyth, and Victor Wanyama, Mousa Dembele, and Davinson Sanchez are all out. Leicester seems to be missing the Jamie Vardy who is suffering from an injury who has proved to be a thorn in the side of Spurs in the recent matches of the two.
Pochettino revealed that Trippier is also going to miss out on the match against Barcelona. He might also decide in order to make sure that Serge Aurier is fresh and fit for the game that is to take place against Catalan giants simply by giving Kyle Walker-Peters, the first start in the Premier League the previous season’s last game.
