Mauricio Pochettino has made some key changes to his starting line up for tonight’s game against Watford.
Tottenham Hotspur return to Premier League action at Wembley looking to put the double cup competition behind them and the manager has reacted by recalling some of his key players.
After making seven changes for the FA Cup defeat at Crystal Palace on Sunday, the likes of Danny Rose, Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen and Heung-min Son are named in the starting eleven.
Out of the team go Paulo Gazzaniga, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker-Peters, Eric Dier, Oliver Skipp and Lucas Moura who all drop down to the bench.
A win for Spurs could see them cut the margin between themselves and second-placed Manchester City down to just two point after they failed to win at Newcastle United last night.
Some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to the team news.
The back five we all want ??
