Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this afternoon’s match against Burnley in North London.
Tottenham’s 10 Premier League victories this season have come against opponents with an average position of 15th in the table on the day of the game. Only West Brom (17th) and Crystal Palace (16th) have beaten lower placed teams on average this term.
Spurs have dropped points in seven of their 12 home league matches this campaign, as many times as during the entire 2019-20 season.
Harry Kane has been directly involved in 10 goals in nine Premier League appearances against Burnley, with seven goals and three assists.
Kane has provided an assist for nine of Son Heung-min’s 13 Premier League goals this season – one more would set an outright Premier League record for most assists for a particular teammate.
Gareth Bale makes his third Premier League start of the season, while Serge Aurier back after injury. Dele is on the bench after midweek heroics.
This is what some of the North London faithful have had to say about the line up:
It's gotten to the stage where I'm nervous about playing Burnley 🤦

Bale AT LAST starting with Son and Kane.
Dele instead of Lucas next week and we might be on to something 🤷🏽♂️

Stop changing the centre backs ffs 🤦♂️ had enough of it. No defender is going to be confident switching every game to a new partnership
