Christian Eriksen looks on during the Tottenham Hotspur official training

The Premier League season is just one game old, but already the big games are upon us.

Manchester City versus Tottenham  Hotspur this weekend is a huge fixture, one which could see the North London side state their case emphatically as title contenders.

 

City will be in the mix for sure. Last season Tottenham finished 27 points behind them. A win for Spurs would show their intent to make this up.

The big decisions are upon Mauricio Pochettino too, even with Dele Alli out injured, and new signings Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon not ready to be involved.

One player who is ready is Christian Eriksen, who was left on the bench for Tottenham's opener.

He came on to play a major role, creating three chances as Spurs fought back from a goal down to win 3-1.

Mauricio Pochettino has to decide whether to bring Eriksen back in, and then who to leave out.

Any of Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela or Harry Winks could make way. It was the latter who was taken off for him against Aston Villa.

If not, Spurs, who are without Son through suspension, must rely on Eriksen to play the role of super-sub again.
