Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this afternoon’s North London derby against Arsenal at the Emirates.
Jose Mourinho has lost just two of his 22 matches as a manager against Arsenal in all competitions (W12, D8), while Mikel Arteta is winless in all eight of his Premier League matches as a player or manager against the Portuguese.
Arsenal have lost just two of their last 35 home league games against Spurs (W19 D14), going down 1-3 in May 1993 and 2-3 in November 2010.
Harry Kane is the all-time highest goalscorer in Arsenal v Tottenham matches in all competitions, netting 11 goals for Spurs against the Gunners in total.
Mourinho has named a strong line up with a front three up Bale, Son and Kane while Matt Doherty gets the nod over Serge Aurier at right-back.
This is what some of the North London faithful have had to say about the line up:
Not sure how I feel about having 3 wingers on the pitch and just hoj and Dombolo
As for Doherty well

Very good lineup but bench dont have creative players only fighters but not all and Lamela is only who can effect to the game when we think forward so starting line has to win today

That’s a very attacking team, I’m surprised, Jose doesn’t respect them
