According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is set to start with Harry Winks in the Champions League final.

Winks has been out injured since the end of April, but has impressed in Tottenham training in the build up to tomorrow’s final.

Winks has now reportedly done enough to convince Pochettino that he is ready to start.


If Winks is brought into Tottenham’s team, he looks likely to start alongside Moussa Sissoko in midfield.

Pochettino will then have the unenviable task of having to pick a which of Tottenham’s key attackers miss out.

Spurs can only pick four of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli in Madrid.

It means Pochettino is likely to severely disappoint one of Tottenham’s key players on Saturday evening by leaving them on the bench.

Kane is thought to be fit enough to start the game, but Pochettino will make his final decision on the striker today - before telling his Tottenham team the full starting line-up for the game against Liverpool.
