Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho has handed new signing Steven Bergwijn his debut in the clash against Manchester City today, a decision that has left some Spurs fans extremely excited.

The Spurs head coach has named quite an attacking line up with Giovani Lo Celso and Harry Winks starting in central midfield behind an attacking quartet of Dele Alli, Bergwijn, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura.

Tottenham have been poor in all their games against the so-called top six teams since Jose Mourinho has taken over with losses against Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool to their name. That is one record the Portuguese coach will want to put right today.

Pep Guardiola’s side come into the game as heavy favourites but with several key players missing, their defence is very much a makeshift one.

Spurs fans will be hoping that they can make their attacking quality count against City’s defence which has struggled to keep clean sheets this season.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to the team news ahead of the game:

This will be a massive test for us as, despite City falling off the pace in the title race, I still believe they along with Liverpool are a class apart from any other team in the league. It will be a massive boost to the players’ confidence if we can get a result from this game.
