Georges-Kevin N'Koudou scored his first goal for Tottenham on Wednesday night.
Fernando Llorente and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou scored their first goals for the north Londoners against Giorgos Donis' side in Group H of the elite competition, which saw Spurs finish the group stage unbeaten with five wins and one draw.
His current first-team stars are faltering after picking up just two points from a possible 12, which has seen them lose to Arsenal and Leicester City while only drawing with West Bromwich Albion and Watford.
The likes of Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko have all struggled to produce the kind of form they are capable of and it should convince Pochettino to hand a chance to some of Wednesday night's stars.
Could that see the former Southampton boss give a spectacular recall to 22-year-old speed machine N'Koudou, after appearing to be completely frozen out by the Spurs manager at the start of the season?
The Frenchman has made almost no impact since moving to north London from Marseille in the summer of 2016 for a reported fee of £10.8million, making just 22 appearances in all competitions since his transfer.
But Wednesday night's outing seemed to show a rejuvenated N'Koudou who has added maturity to a style of play that previously relied upon his pace. It is as though his time with Tottenham has made him become more of an intelligent player.
Although he has frustrated many on the terraces of both Wembley and White Hart Lane, surely it is time to give N'Koudou a proper go in the Premier League when Spurs' other stars are struggling to find their form?
