Spurs boss studies his options

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is keeping his cards very close to his chest as he considers his team for the second clash against the Hammers within a few days.

Excitement is building as the Irons prepare to take on the north Londoners at the London Stadium this evening but Pochettino is giving nothing away at this stage as to who will  be involved.

He told the official Spurs site:  “It’s another derby, yes and we will need to assess the players as we try to be competitive again.

“We want to put another competitive team on the pitch and it will be tough, we’re not in a similar condition because West Ham played on Saturday and we played on Monday.

“We need to consider a lot of things as we take our decision.

“It’s a challenge. We need to prepare the best team, a fresh team and give our best. The squad is so important at this moment.”
