Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is likely to be considering a reshuffle to his Spurs starting line-up following Saturday's disappointing draw against West Bromwich Albion - and fans want him to start Mousa Dembele.

The north Londoners go up against 2015-16 Premier League champions Leicester City on Tuesday night, tasked with bouncing back immediately from dropping points at home to West Brom as they drew 1-1.

It has seen Spurs drop out of the Premier League's top four places, with north London rivals Arsenal overtaking them into fourth place following Alexis Sanchez's injury-time penalty to win 1-0.

Spurs informed fans on their official Twitter account that midfield mainstay Harry Winks could miss the clash through illness, while Victor Wanyama remains sidelined with a knee injury.

That has led to fans calling on Pochettino to pick 70-time Belgium international Dembele to start over Winks in midfield, which is likely to see him line-up alongside Eric Dier.

One fan believes alongside Dier, Dembele can "dictate the game".
