Mauricio Pochettino could make a number of changes to rest his Tottenham Hotspur side to face West Brom after their midweek exploits in the Champions League - but fans have pleaded with their manager to stick with Son Heung-Min.

The 25-year-old has been in excellent form for the north Londoners this season, despite being used in somewhat of a rotational system that has seen him start just 11 of his 17 league and cup appearances throughout the 2017-18 campaign.

However, the South Korea international will have sent a message to Argentinian boss Pochettino on Tuesday night, as he scored the winner in Spurs' 2-1 Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund at the Westfalenstadion.

Son's inclusion in the side hinges on whether Pochettino uses a four-man defence, or adopts a 3-4-2-1 system. With the four-man defence, he often instructs his side to play using a 4-2-3-1 formation, which allows Son to be included alongside Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane.

However, with Alli and Eriksen preferred to the former Bayer Leverkusen star, Son is made to wait on the substitutes bench when Pochettino plays three at the back.

Tottenham fans have urged their manager to stick with Son against managerless West Bromich Albion on Saturday, with one fan claiming Son "must start every game".
