Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth are in line to be fast-tracked into the Tottenham starting XI for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Leicester City, according to Mauricio Pochettino.

The Spurs manager explained at his media briefing on Friday afternoon that the rookie defensive pair could be handed rare starts fo the team’s final match of the season.

As quoted by Football London correspondent Alasdair Gold, Pochettino explained that senior quintet Serge Aurier, Mousa Dembele, Kieran Trippier, Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier are all doubts for the clash at Wembley.

Football Insider verdict:

With a top-four finish and Champions League qualification already secured for next season, Spurs’ clash against Leicester is a fairly meaningless one. Pochettino is keen to nail down a third-placed finish but is unlikely to take any risks with regulars following the crucial midweek win against Newcastle. That could open the door to academy product Walker-Peters, who has made just eight first-team appearances for the club but has already demonstrated the potential to develop into a established senior player. Argentine centre-back Foyth, 20, is similarly callow, with eight Spurs appearances under his belt, but might get his chance if Jan Vertonghen and Dier are given breathers. With thoughts turning to next season, the home supporters will be keen to see more of what Walker-Peters and Foyth have to offer, especially against an attack featuring the goalscoring prowess of Jamie Vardy and the creative genius of Riyad Mahrez.
