Peter Crouch has told BT Sport, during their live Champions League coverage, that Mauricio Pochettino should keep consistency with his selection for Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.

Pochetttino has not named the same starting line-up for consecutive matches at Spurs since February 2018, in a run which has stretched for 93 games.

However, Tottenham looked in strong form last night, as they picked up a 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

The likes of Eric Dier and Juan Foyth, who were brought into Spurs’s team, did well.

 

And Crouch has suggested that Pochettino should finally end his run of altering Tottenham’s team now.

“I’d like him to break that [run of making changes to his line-up],” the former Spurs striker said.

“There is a lot of people who did themselves a lot of favours to night and play their way back in.

“I thought Eric Dier and Foyth deserve a chance to play.”

Tottenham take on Sheffield United at the weekend, as they look to improve their poor form in the league.

Spurs have failed to impress so far this season, with Pochettino’s side currently sat in 11th place in the Premier League table.

Pochettino tends to rotate after European nights, but whether he will break the habit remains to be seen, as Spurs search for the winning formula.
