Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino won’t find it difficult to motivate his players for the FA Cup game away at Burnley after a superb win against Chelsea in the Premier League.
Spurs were superb as they defeated the Premier League leaders 5-3 at White Hart Lane yesterday, which leaves Pochettino with a selection dilemma ahead of the trip to Burnley in the third round.
The boss has to decide whether he sticks with the same sort of team that defeated the Blues or whether it’s a better option to rotate his squad, keeping fresh legs in the side after a busy period in the season.
The FA Cup represents a realistic chance of silverware for Spurs this season and an opportunity to impress against a variety of sides in the Premier League and Football League.
Here’s the possible side Pochettino could go with.
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Walker, Fazio, Vertonghen, Davies, Stambouli, Bentaleb, Dembele, Eriksen, Townsend, Kane
