Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to Ryan Mason’s team selection for today’s match against Leicester City.
Beating sides above them in the table has proven to be problematic for Spurs having suffered seven straight defeats in fixtures against teams currently above them in the table.
Only Brighton (25) have dropped more points from winning positions than Tottenham this season (23), with Spurs losing 2-1 against Aston Villa last time out despite opening the scoring.
Harry Kane, who could be making his last appearance for the club today has scored more Premier League goals against Leicester than he has vs any other opponent (14 in 11 games). Seven of these goals have come in six games at the King Power Stadium, including a four-goal haul in May 2017.
Matt Doherty and Davinson Sanchez come into the starting eleven, while there is no place in the squad for Serge Aurier, Tanguy Ndombele or Moussa Sissoko.
Here is a selection of what the North London faithful had to say about the line up:
Why does Ryan Mason hate Tanguy Ndombele?

What did he see in Wink’s performance mid-week to suggest he doesn’t need Ndombele or Lo Celso (£100m of signings) in the squad? Congrats to @Arsenal for finishing above us 🤦♂️

La mafia not in the squad. Aurier Sissoko defo leaving. Where is Tanguy? Winks last game hopefully.
Chance for Doherty. Rodon robbed again. Bergwin better score again. Reguilon needs to have a good game. To me this game means nothing tbh. Just happy for the player departures.COYS

So the Spurs DNA is something the find at the scene of the crime, when Mason and Levy have butchered this football club. Great team selection, great choice of manager
