Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on today’s Tottenham Hotspur team selection for the trip to Southampton.

Mauricio Pochettino recalled Dele Alli to the starting eleven after more than a month out injured with a left hamstring problem that he picked up during the 2-1 win at Fulham.

Elsewhere, Toby Alderweireld is not included in the match day squad which has left fans baffled.
Danny Rose comes back in at left-back in place of Ben Davies who drops down to the bench, there is also a rare start for Kyle Walker-Peters at right-back.

Heung-min Son is named amongst the substitutes with his place being taken by Lucas Moura.

Harry Winks misses out completely after failing to recover in time from a groin injury that he picked up during the 1-0 win against Borussia Dortmund in midweek.

Here’s how some Spurs fans have reacted to the team news.
