Mauricio on defensive options against Stoke

Posted on 8 December 2017  - 14:15

Mauricio Pochettino says he's not concerned about our central defensive cover with both Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez sidelined for the visit of Stoke in the Premier League on Saturday.

Toby misses out as he recovers from a hamstring injury - Mauricio reported Toby 'was doing well and is on plan' - and Davinson is suspended after picking up a red card at Watford last weekend.

"We finished at Watford with Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen (in central defence) and then we have Juan Foyth and different options," said Mauricio at his pre-Stoke press conference on Friday afternoon.

"Ben Davies can play like a centre-back, Serge Aurier can play like a centre-back, he played there before for Paris St Germain in that position, so we have plenty of options to use. I'm not concerned."
