Tottenham fans claim Poch must start these three attacking midfielders v Hull

By Harvey Byrne

Tottenham fans are adamant that South Korea international Son Heung-min must start in the clash against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela were also favoured for the front three, winning the majority vote over their attacking midfield counterparts.

Son, 24, returned to the side for the clash against Stoke and helped Mauricio Pochettino’s side to a comfortable 4-0 victory with two goals.

He has also featured against Monaco and Sunderland, while being rested in the midweek clash against Gillingham in the EFL Cup.


Fans were left undecided on Twitter, but most agreed that Lamela, Son and Eriksen should start for the north London club, with some also opting for Dele Alli.

Here are a selection of their messages:

Pochettino went for a front three of Lamela, Eriksen and Joshua Onomah in midweek, but the youngster is expected to drop out.

However, Eriksen bagged two goals in the Gillingham contest, while Lamela also got on the score sheet giving the Argentine boss a welcomed selection headache.
