Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social media to share their reaction to Jose Mourinho’s team selection for the Premier League game against West Ham United this afternoon which kicks off in less than an hour’s time in North London.
The Hammers make the trip across the capital to face in the eyes of many of their fans is their biggest rival.
West Ham have won their last two Premier League games by an aggregate score of 7-0. They last won three in a row in the competition in May 2019, while they last did so without conceding back in February 2014.
Jose Mourinho has once again decided to leave Dele Alli out of his match day squad, while Eric Dier misses out with a hamstring issue.
Steven Bergwijn gets the nod to start in a front three alongside Harry Kane and Heung-min Son. Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinícius are named among the substitutes.
This is what some supporters had to say on Twitter after seeing today’s team line up.
I'm no Aurier fan but you couldn't drop him after Utd game surely

If anyone thought Bale was starting the man has not played a full 90 minutes in a long long long time please remember that he cant play a whole game give him time to get his match sharpness and fitness.

Bale was always going to be on the bench, these people saying ‘oh where’s bale’ let him work his way into the team. It wouldn’t be cool or look good if he just jumps straight in. Do it the legitimate way. 4-1 Tottenham #COYS
