When new players join the Premier League, it wouldn't be unthinkable for them to have vivid dreams of themselves scoring a last-minute 40-yard bicycle kick victor at an iconic venue like Old Trafford or Anfield.
In defence, Toby Alderweirald could be given another start, as Pochettino continues his process of easing the centre-back into the team since his return from his injury.
The Dale had the better first half and Ian Henderson deservedly put them ahead just before the break.

Moura's pace made him an obvious danger to Rochdale from the start while Son Heung-Min created several early openings but struggled to find his feet.
But Pochettino insisted Spurs will not take the lowly opposition lightly.
One big positive was that I rewlly enjoyed Lucas.
But there was still time for one more twist which means Spurs are facing a Wembley replay for the second round in a row, having needed two games to end fourth-tier strugglers Newport County's FA Cup run.
