I love this 11. Son will give us so much energy. Lamela and Lucas to come on from the bench. Wanyama if we want to close the match. It will be very hard but we can to it #COYS 💙 https://t.co/H3rVuwR79Q

Heung-Min Son deservedly keeps his place in the team ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s biggest game of their season meanwhile Trippier comes in for the suspended Aurier.
Arguably Pochettino strongest team selected tonight bar Alderweireld.

Son has already made 41 appearances for Spurs across all competitions, being utilised in a variety of roles from his natural left wing to a centre forward, and has rewarded Pochettino for his loyalty with 15 goals and nine assists.
He appeared for just seven minutes in the first leg against Juve, by which point goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen had rescued a draw for Tottenham after Gonzalo Higuain’s brace in the opening 10 minutes.
