Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this afternoon’s match against Sheffield United.
No Premier League side has scored more first-half goals than Tottenham’s 19, including an unrivalled eight goals in the opening 15 minutes of games.
Finding the back of the net has been a problem for the Blades, who have scored nine Premier League goals this campaign, a joint-league low alongside Burnley.
Jose Mourinho has made three changes from his starting eleven against Fulham with Ben Davies, Joe Rodon and Steven Bergwijn returning.
Rodon partners Eric Dier and Davies at the heart of the defence with Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez named among the substitutes.
The head coach has decided to name Gedson Fernandes on the bench ahead of the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Winks who have been left back in London.
This is what some of the North London faithful have had to say about the line up:

Goodbye Dele Alli. Why does Mourinho always make it personal?
