Liverpool legend Phil Thompson suggested on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports News on Saturday afternoon (1pm, November 10, 2018) that Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino should not include Juan Foyth in the starting lineup against Crystal Palace this weekend.

Tottenham will take on Palace away from home at Selhurst Park in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

Foyth made his Premier League debut for Spurs last weekend, as the 20-year-old central defender featured against Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home at Molineux Stadium.

 

The Argentina Under-20 international gave away two penalties, both of which were converted by Wolves.

The young defender did not feature against PSV in the Champions League in midweek, as he was not registered for the competition.

With Colombia international defender Davinson Sanchez available, former Liverpool star Thompson has suggested that Spurs manager Pochettino should not include Foyth against Palace this evening.

Thompson said on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports News on Saturday afternoon (1pm, November 10, 2018) when asked if Foyth should stay in the Tottenham team: “I wouldn’t. I would take him out. I would explain to him about what he is doing and how he is doing it. Davinson Sanchez is fit and available, and you would put him straight back in.”

Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 24 points from 11 matches, five points behind leaders Manchester City.
