Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reactions after the team which will face Middlesbrough this evening was announced just moments ago.
Jose Mourinho’s side were taken to a replay by Jonathan Woodgate’s side a week on Sunday after the visitors came from behind to save their blushes thanks to a Lucas Moura header.
The Spurs head coach took the decision to give Toby Alderweireld a rest and left the Belgian out of his squad.
Christian Eriksen starts once again despite his poor performance against Liverpool. Erik Lamela, Giovani Lo Celso and Jan Vertonghen come into the starting eleven while there is a place on the bench for young academy left-back Dennis Cirkin.
? #THFC: Gazzaniga, Tanganga, Sanchez, Vertonghen (C), Sessegnon, Dier, Winks, Lo Celso, Eriksen, Lamela, Lucas.

Tonight represents the first FA Cup match which will be held at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Boro come into the match having been held to a 2-2 draw against Derby County at the weekend.
This is what some Spurs fans had to say.
Cirkin but no Parrott… Jose is making a statement.

What’s the use of having Parrott in the squad?

Decent enough! Let's put on a show tonight, eh? At the end of the day, we're at home to a Championship side. A big, confidence-boosting win would be nice! #COYS
