“Start him he will win you double goal” – Pochettino told to start incoming 22-year-old star against Manchester City

It remains to be seen just how much Mauricio Pochettino will have learned about his side following their big win over Tottenham on Monday Night.

Despite what looks a dominant win on paper for the Blues, the 4-1 victory over Spurs was anything but as the Blues laboured to a win over nine men.

Before the game, any sort of result against the only unbeaten side in the league will have been a big one, however now the feeling is that there are still a number of things to work on before Sunday’s next game.

The Blues are preparing to face Manchester City at the weekend, as their tough run of games continues to get harder.

When facing the nine-men of Spurs, one player that in particular looked to be struggling throughout was Axel Disasi, and his place in the side for Sunday can certainly not be assured.

With Benoit Badiashile closing in on full fitness again, Pochettino should look towards the Frenchman for his first Premier League start of the season up against the treble winners.

Badiashile should play vs Manchester City
He would not be coming into the game cold either. The Frenchman started and played an hour during the League Cup win over Blackburn last week, where he also found the net to open the scoring.

It is likely that he would be joined at the back by the experienced Thiago Silva, who has started every Premier League game so far this season.

When the young players around him were threatening to collapse under the pressure on Monday night, his impact and experience at the back was crucial for the Blues, and a trait that was praised by his manager.

A pairing of Silva and Badiashile would be optimal for the club when they welcome City on Sunday.
