Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social media to share their reaction to Jose Mourinho’s team selection the Premier League game against Crystal Palace this afternoon which kicks off in less than an hour’s time.
Eric Dier comes straight into the starting eleven following his four game ban in place of Davinson Sanchez while Jan Vertonghen takes his place on the bench.
The game will once again be played behind closed doors with no fans due to be present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.
Everything is on the line for Tottenham’s hopes of Europa League qualification with supporters likely to have one eye on the developments at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Mourinho had a full squd to choose from apart from Tanguy Ndombele with the Frenchman currently sidelined with a knee injury (Spurs official).
Palace come into the game having suffered seven straight defeats since the season resumed.
Here is what some of the North London faithful had to say on Twitter:
Glad to see Dier back, solid CB. Bring on Vert ????

Why drop Sanchez for Dier? Stupid decision. Our best defensive performances this season have come when we've had Toby and Sanchez starting

Eric Dier WILL be mourinho’s Captain one day ! Mark my words .. It’s a love affair I don’t understand !
There’s no way he should come straight back into the starting 11 today ! We’ve won 3 in a row .. keep same team ! It’s not Harry Kane we’re talking about ?
