Who should start out wide for Spurs?

With a wealth of attacking players at his disposal, Mauricio Pochettino faces a selection headache ahead of Tottenham's next Premier League game of who to deploy in the two wide positions in the band of three behind the striker.

The lone-frontman position could also prove to be a headache, but for entirely different reasons. With Emmanuel Adebayor seemingly frozen out, summer addition Clinton N'Jie is likely to be the man to deputise for Harry Kane should the 22-year-old be sidelined or rested.

While the former Lyon man predominantly featured out wide for the Ligue 1 outfit, the lack of strikers at Tottenham could see him starting up top in the absence of Kane, a position that will not be entirely unfamiliar to the Cameroon international.

N'Jie has 11 caps and six goals for his country, often being deployed up front and even drawing comparisons to the legendary Samuel Eto'o from Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas.

With N'Jie's role likely to be that of back-up striker, it would be a surprise to see him handed a regular role out wide, whenever he is eventually deemed fit for a place in the matchday squad.

Fellow new addition Heung-Min Son, meanwhile, is the likely candidate to be handed one of the two spots on either side of Christian Eriksen, when the Dane returns to fitness.

Son, while predominantly deployed on the left wing for former club Bayer Leverkusen, is a strong contender for both wing positions thanks to his ability with both feet. Of the 11 goals the South Korean scored in the Bundesliga last season, four came from of his right foot, with the remaining seven coming courtesy of left-footed efforts.

Nacer Chadli has made the left wing position his own under Pochettino. While the Belgian has a tendency to drift in certain games, his goal return will likely keep him in the first XI.

The former FC Twente flyer scored 11 goals in the league last season, more than any other player bar Kane, and tends to be more effective when deployed on the left wing than behind the striker or out wide, as has been demonstrated throughout his time at White Hart Lane.

Erik Lamela featured in 33 games in the league last time out, but could see his time on the pitch vastly reduced this season thanks to the arrival of Son.

The Argentine registered the highest tally of assists at the club last season with seven, but with Kane unlikely to recreate his spectacular form of last season and bail the side out time and time again, Pochettino may opt to pick the players he sees as the most viable goal threats.

Andros Townsend may find himself in a similar position to Lamela for the same reason. While many clamber for his inclusion when the side appear in desperate need of pace, it only takes a couple of games to realise why he was out of favour in the first place.

While the England international clearly has an abundance of talent, his lack of consistency and failure to build upon the form he showed, albeit sparsely, under Andre Villas-Boas will likely see him saved for the Europa League and occasional substitute appearances, when an injection of pace is required.

While Mousa Dembele has been deployed on the right wing in all four of Spurs' opening league games this season, the arrival of Son and Christian Eriksen's return to fitness (whenever that may prove to be), will more than likely see the Belgian only deployed in that position when away from home when ball retention and containment are of upmost importance.
