Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to Jose Mourinho’s team selection for this afternoon’s fixture.
Spurs kick off their Premier League campaign with a tough test against Everton, who have spent millions in the summer on the likes of James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Everton have won just one of their last 19 Premier League games in London (D7 L11), winning 2-0 at West Ham in March 2019. Only Newcastle (79) have ever lost more Premier League away games in the capital than the Toffees (78).
Spurs have handed competitive debuts to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Matt Doherty while fellow summer signing Joe Hart is named one the bench ahead of Paulo Gazzaniga.
Giovanni Lo Celso is not in the squad due to a hamstring injury, however there is a place on the bench for Tanguy Ndombele despite playing only 45 minutes during pre-season.
Here is what some fans had to say.
Ndombele to come on or we riot

All things considered, with the currently available players, that’s a decent team and a strong bench… #COYS

Before you all meltdown, please tell me none of you actually expected Tanguy to start? Because you’re deluded if you did?
