To protect or not to protect certain players? Give play time to those who have less? These are some of the questions Pochettino needs to ask himself. Facing the Hérault people, he should align Angel Di Maria who will be suspended against Cityzens. Neymar could also start and be preferred to Mauro Icardi alongside Kylian Mbappé. In defense, Thilo Kehrer will accompany Marquinhos in the center, while Diallo will evolve on the left.
