Tottenham ensured their best start in 51 years after defeating Middlesbrough in the Premier League on Saturday.
The North Londoners will now be hoping to start winning in the Champions League as well when they face CSKA Moscow away from home tomorrow night.
Spurs lost their opening game of the competition against French side AS Monaco who defeated Pochettino’s men 2-1 in their own backyard. Currently, Tottenham sit at the bottom of their group.
Spurs will be without no fewer than five key players. The likes of Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko, Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier are not fit and have not traveled with the squad.
In such a scenario, it will not come as any surprise if the Argentine boss changes his usual 4-2-3-1 formation.
Spurs must win and Pochettino might play an attacking 4-1-4-1 formation vs CSKA. Eriksen and Alli may drop back when needed to support Wanyama in the midfield.
Here is Tottenham’s potential 4-1-4-1 XI vs CSKA.
