Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping for a positive reaction from his team heading into the second leg of the League Cup semi-final against Sheffield United.
Spurs will be frustrated that they couldn’t see out the game against Leicester City over the weekend, as they went out of a competition the boss may have felt they had a good chance of winning.
Tottenham have a narrow lead heading into the game against the Blades, though things won’t be easy with Nigel Clough’s side likely to inspire their home support to create an intimidating atmosphere for Tottenham to play in.
Sheffield United could take a number of different approaches to this game, which may dictate how the Spurs boss urges his team to go about getting a result.
The Blades could try and bully Spurs physically as they attempt to level the playing field and prevent Pochettino’s most creative players from getting possession and creating a number of good chances for the visiting side.
Here is the possible side that Pochettino could select for the match.
Tottenham Hotspur: Vorm, Walker, Fazio, Vertonghen, Rose, Stambouli, Dembele, Eriksen, Lamela, Townsend, Kane
