How Spurs could line up vs Arsenal with Sissoko or Dier at right-back

first_imgMAURICIO POCHETTINO faces a defensive dilemma ahead of Sunday’s North London derby.Spurs are sweating over the fitness of Kyle Walker-Peters – which could lead to Moussa Sissoko or Eric Dier filling in as a makeshift right-back.2Walker-Peters has started all three of Tottenham’s Premier League fixtures this season.But the 22-year-old is a doubt for the clash against Arsenal after he limped off during Sunday’s defeat to Newcastle.He was hauled off in the 62nd minute and replaced by Christian Eriksen after appearing to injure his hamstring.Sissoko put in a good shift at right-back for the remainder of the match against the Magpies.The powerful Frenchman, 30, could start at the back alongside Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez and Danny Rose.Alternatively, Pochettino could turn to Dier to solve his problems at the back.He has experience playing at right-back for Spurs and during his time with Sporting Lisbon.Dier even made his debut for Spurs in the position in 2014 – when he scored a stoppage time winner against West Ham.2MOST READ IN SPORT THROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticIT’S…NOT TOMMY BOWETommy Bowe discovers someone has been impersonating him on TinderMAC DADDYTriple H wants McGregor v McMahon with winner getting rights to billionaire strutSerge Aurier would be the obvious choice for Spurs, but he is expected to be left out as speculation continues to surround his future.Argentina right-back Juan Foyth is also out of action after suffering an ankle during pre-season.Tanguy Ndombele is also set to miss the match after being left out France’s squad for next week’s European Championship qualifiers.
