Tottenham have a fully fit squad for the first leg of their last-32 tie in Europa League at home to Italian side Fiorentina.
With a top four challenge, Capital One Cup final and Europa League campaign all on the go, head coach Mauricio Pochettino has a tough job balancing the different competitions but at least does not have any injury or suspension worries.
“Everyone is fit – this is important – and now I must pick the players for Thursday night,” Mauricio told the club's official site after training on Wednesday.
“It’s difficult for me to select the squad but that’s a good problem to have.”
With a London derby against West Ham following on Sunday lunchtime, followed by the return leg in Florence and then the Capital Cup final at Wembley against Chelsea, the games come thick and fast and are not getting any easier for the north London outfit.
Will Pochettino play his strongest XI each time, or will he look to rotate? Given the performances from the fringe members of the squad, it looks a very tricky challenge to balance results with rotation.
For the first leg against Fiorentina, the Argentine may try to claim a convincing win and make the second leg an easier match, especially since the cup final is just three days after.
Predicted Spurs XI:
Vorm, Walker, Fazio, Vertonghen, Davies, Stambouli, Paulinho, Chadli, Eriksen, Townsend, Kane
