Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino will need to have his attackers firing on all cylinders against Hull City in the Premier League on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur have stepped up their preparations for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Hull City at the KC Stadium.

On paper, it should be a straightforward win for Spurs, but given their struggles this season, one cannot dismiss Hull’s chances of picking up all three points.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is likely to make a few changes to his team following the international break, but there is a distinct chance that striker Harry Kane will retain his place in the starting line-up.

But who would play alongside Kane in attack and who will play behind him to create chances? Perhaps the following picture taken during Friday’s training session gives a hint.

Pochettino has not always played with two strikers up front, but perhaps he could be a bit bold and start with Roberto Soldado and Kane against Hull.

The two strikers have not played together regularly and have yet to prove that they can succeed together, but unless they are tried and tested, there is no way of knowing.

In Christian Eriksen, Pochettino has one of the most creative young players in Europe. The Denmark international has not been in great form so far this season, but he remains a truly gifted talent and will be the man to unlock Hull’s defence on Sunday.
