It’s a shame for KWP as he was growing into games but still indecisive.4 CBs jan,Sanchez,Toby & dier.rose & sissy either side.Fill all those gaps in the earlier 3 games

These Spurs fans are gutted that Walker-Peters will miss the game – as they believe he was starting to grow into the right-back role.
Yes finally we will not see Kyle walker peters

While he is off the pitch, someone should tell him that he also has offensive obligations at right back that may include throwing a few crosses into the box and making overlapping runs.

Other Tottenham fans were clearly not impressed by the 22-year-old – so they aren’t bothered he will miss the game.
Dier has played RB before & done well. Sure, he wont get forward as much, but he is a seasoned international & he likely understands the derby more than Aurier or even Sissoko. He can bring some leadership which seems to be lacking right now. He is more valuable than we may think

Sounds like we’ll play 3 at the back, with Sissoko (imo) playing RWB ????
