Three Tottenham Hotspur Players Who Need To Grasp The Opportunity Against Millwall

Kevin Wimmer

Eric Dier’s brilliant displays in the centre-half position when Mauricio Pochettino had to work in the absence of, initially, Toby Alderweireld and then Jan Vertonghen, has pretty much taken away the chance from Kevin Wimmer of having a breakthrough season.

The Austrian international has managed just five league appearances so far this season. Although the manager had put his trust in him initially in their European campaign and in the domestic cups, the 24-year-old has failed to impress anyway and FA Cup might be his final resort as the manager might look to dispose of him at the end of the current campaign.

At 187cm, the defender is a great athlete and given his nascent age, critics tout him to become a good centre-back with age. But a move from one from England’s elite club early in his career could be harmful, and he should give all he has to avoid it.

Vincent Janssen

Although Pochettino has got back his mojo just in time to get a shot at the Premier League title, his horrendous summer shopping had almost made sure that he failed at it. One such example is this Dutch forward. The 22-year-old had arrived from AZ Alkmaar on the back of some rave reviews of being a young and prolific striker. But, he had little to no influence in a Tottenham side that went Harry Kane-less in the initial stages embarking on a winless streak for a short term.

He has got 19 chances in the domestic league to prove his mettle and he has managed to net only once with the same number of assist. However, his FA Cup form is quite decent, scoring once and assisting the same in two appearances, and he will look to keep it up.

Moussa Sissoko 

Sissoko has been one of the biggest failures for the Lilywhites this season. He came to White Hart Lane for a whopping £30million after Tottenham won the race with numerous clubs who were chasing the French midfielder.

But, he has done no justice to his transfer fee and has consequently seen more bench time than was expected. He too, like Janssen, was thrown into the midfield in the initial stages of the season and failed terribly. Barring some eye-catching displays here and there like that against Manchester United and in some European matches, where Tottenham crashed out eventually; Sissoko has been quite underwhelming. Sissoko has an assist in 3 FA Cup appearances and he would expect to improve that record when Tottenham faces Millwall this weekend.
