There seems to be a lot of panic from Spurs fans on Twitter calling for Wimmer to play or changing the formation. Neither solve the issue we have at the moment. There is nothing wrong with the defence so there is no reason to change it.
The issue is the last third and trying to score goals with purpose as opposed to passing and waiting for an opportunity. Call it aggression, call it urgency, the label doesn't matter. The squad is still short of some quality with players like N'Koudou looking learning his trade.
It is understandable fans want things now, while Pochettino is still building for seasons to come, albeit while trying to challenge now. It was only a few weeks ago we beat Manchester City totally outplaying them so there isn't a great deal wrong.
We go into this game with the same feelings as we went into the Manchester City game, nobody saw that performance coming. Mousa Dembele and Harry Kane have both passed fitness tests and are available to take part. It's only a short while to kick-off now and then we'll see what today brings.
