Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to bounce back from a poor run of form when they take on Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs lost 2-1 at Leicester City on Tuesday, following on from a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion and a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal.

Mauricio Pochettino's men have now claimed just one point in three league games since the international break, and need a response at Watford.

One of the problems Pochettino is facing is the absence of defender Toby Alderweireld, as Spurs have looked shaky at the back without him, whilst Mousa Dembele's form has been an issue in midfield too.

A potential solution is to bring summer signing Juan Foyth into defence alongside Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen, allowing Eric Dier to play in midfield and strike up his partnership with Mousa Dembele once again.

Foyth, 19, has yet to make a Premier League appearance for Spurs since his summer move from Estudiantes in his native Argentina, with Pochettino spending £8million on his signature (BBC Sport).

The defender only has two first-team appearances to his name in England, but Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to suggest that Pochetitno needs to be ruthless and drop some key players, bringing Foyth in.

Many believe Foyth should make his Premier League debut against Watford on Saturday afternoon, allowing Dier to move into midfield in an attempt to get back to winning ways.
