Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this evening’s match against Stoke City.

The fixture represents a welcome distraction for Tottenham from their drop in Premier League fortunes over the past seven days.

The only previous League Cup meeting between Stoke City and Spurs was in September 2011, a goalless draw with the Potters winning 7-6 on penalties to progress.
