Tottenham Hotspur are struggling at the back without Toby Alderweireld.
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.
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.

Also winks and lamela please
How about trying Foyth in the 3 on Saturday?— Curtis (@CurtisTHFC) November 30, 2017
Wouldn't it be worth playing Foyth and putting Dier back in DM?— WhiteHartLady (@AmandaSeager) November 28, 2017
Poch needs to give Foyth some game time now in readiness. Will also release Dier to sort out the midfield.— Tottenham Grammar (@PhilYiddo) November 29, 2017
I think Foyth needs minutes. I like him a lot and I would like him a lot in a system where we can alternate between a 3 and a 4 back with him and Dier splitting the responsibilities for him to build physicality of PL level— Ryan Helms (@Univarn) November 29, 2017
Poch seriously needs to get Dier back in DCM role and maybe bring in Foyth, it would bring balance back to the force!— Sevilla_Spurs (@Sevilla_Spurs) November 29, 2017

Yes I would give the Argentinian CB a game moving Dier back into DM. Drop Dele for Son’s movement and running off Kane. Poch has got to be ruthless.
My team for weekend— graham mulrooney (@grahamroon) November 29, 2017
What I’ve seen of Foyth he looks confident on the ball, good in the air and his positioning looks pretty solid. Slot him in next to Sanchez and Jan and put Dier back in midfield where we desperately need him. Dembele always looks better next to Dier or Wanyama. #COYS— John Bates (@John_Boy1983) November 29, 2017
