“Lamela, stealing a living” – Some Spurs fans react to the team news ahead of West Ham match

Tottenham Hotspur face West Ham United tomorrow lunchtime in what could be a pivotal game in their quest to finish in the top four.

Mauricio Pochettino will be without the services of five first team players after it was confirmed on the club’s official Twitter account that Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela are all sidelined with respective injury issues.

Having so many players unavailable will certainly limit Mauricio Pochettino’s options to try and keep his squad fresh ahead of Tuesday night’s Champions League semi final first leg against Ajax.

While Heung-min Son and Vincent Janssen are both available to face the Hammers, the pair will not take part on Tuesday due to Son’s one-match suspension and the fact that Janssen was not named in the club’s Champions League squad.

Some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to the team news ahead of the Premier League encounter.

Spurs fans will be hoping that the players who feature against West Ham manage to come through the game unscathed and are all available for the Ajax match in what is already a depleted squad to choose from, especially in the middle of midfield.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. It’s time for him to go now. Although he won’t be easy to sell with £100k wages and his injury track record. He is too expensive to be a decent option off the bench and when he starts he never does enough. Doesn’t score goals like he did at Roma and although you can’t fault his work rate tracking back he does silly things and key passes not there. If we can get £20m back of the £30m we paid. Just have to go down as another dud from the Bale money.

  2. Time to cut losses and get rid of Lamela, complete waste of a wage! Not even that great when he does play the odd 10 minutes here and there.

    Also surely Levy has got to see what a state we are in now and struggling to even put 11 on the pitch let alone a bench capable of any sort of impact. TIME TO GET THE CHEQUE BOOK OUT!
