Revealed: Pochettino rings the changes for Tottenham clash
By Wayne Veysey
Mauricio Pochettino is to ring the changes for Tottenham’s Premier League clash against Leicester City today, Football Insider understands.
The manager is planning to make multiple alterations to the side that drew 2-2 in the Champions League away to Olympiakos on Wednesday evening.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that Pochettino will once again rotate his players for the 12.30pm kick-off at the King Power Stadium, which is less than 72 hours after the Athens clash.
Son Heung-Min, Erik Lamela, Serge Aurier and Danny Rose are among those expected to return to the starting XI after they were dropped for the Champions League opener.
Son (twice) and Lamela both scored in the 4-0 hammering of Crystal Palace last weekend but were then on the bench four days later, while Aurier and Rose were left in London and did not even make the trip to Greece.
