Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this evening’s Carabao Cup fourth round tie against Burnley at Turf Moor.

Nuno Espirito Santo is looking to avoid a third successive defeat in all competitions, with his decision to rest his star players against Vitesse Arnhem having backfired when the fringe players lost 1-0.  Despite having recalled his stars for Sunday’s London derby at West Ham, a disappointing display saw them on the receiving end of an identical scoreline.

The Clarets have won just one of their last 14 meetings with Tottenham in all competitions (D4 L9), winning 2-1 in a home league game in February 2019.

Tottenham have eliminated Burnley the last two times they have faced them in the League Cup, doing so in the 2008-09 semi-final and in round four in 2004-05.

Nuno has made six changes from the Hammers defeat with Gollini, Sanchez, Davies, Lo Celso, Bergwijn and Bryan all coming in to start.

This is how some of the North London faithful reacted to news of the team:
