Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino admits that he may be forced to use some of the team's younger players against Tottenham Hotspur.

Mauricio Pochettino has said that Southampton may include a number of their younger players against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

The Saints, who travel to White Hart Lane tomorrow, have several senior players carrying injuries.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, the manager told reporters: "I think it's a very good chance to bring in young players to give them a very good experience of playing against a very big team in the Premier League.

"It's a very good time when you're facing difficulties in terms of injuries that you bring in young players to give them experience. It'll be a very good thing for their futures as well.

"Just seeing the doubts we have in our senior players, we're thinking about maybe drafting a younger player into the team."

Ahead of this weekend's fixtures, Southampton sat eighth in the table.
