Tottenham Hotspur are set to take on Leicester City in their next outing.
Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino should re-unite Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld in defence for his side’s next match against Leicester City.
Alderweireld and Vertonghen have been split up in Tottenham’s last two outings, which has been rather surprising.
Pochettino has stuck by Juan Foyth, but now is the time for the Argentine defender to be taken out of the Lilywhites’ team.
Foyth has performed admirably, given his lack of experience, after being handed a chance in recent weeks.
However, he has been guilty of making errors, and he does not have the same assurance about him as Alderweireld and Vertonghen at this stage of his career.
Tottenham’s defence has not looked particularly solid in either of their last two matches, against Southampton or Arsenal, and it will come in for a test at the weekend.
Spurs travel to the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening, where Leicester lie in wait.
The Foxes have the attacking quality to hurt Spurs if they are not at the top of their game.
And Pochettino should see now as the perfect time to make sure his two most solid defenders are starting alongside each other again.
