Tottenham Hotspur take on Liverpool at Anfield in under one hour and the team news is finally out, but a number of Spurs fans are not happy with Pochettino’s choices.
The Argentine has left Tanguy Ndombele on the bench despite his superb display in the Champions League against Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.
Fellow new boy, Giovani Lo Celso, Champions League hero, Lucas Moura, and senior defender, Jan Vertonghen, are also restricted to spots on the bench.
Meanwhile, Christian Eriksen makes the starting XI in a big away match despite looking like he will leave the club on a free at the end of the season.
Spurs have just three wins in the Premier League so far this campaign and are in desperate need of a big away win, but they come up against an unbeaten Liverpool side who sit at the top of the table.
Spurs fans have reacted to the team news on Twitter:

No Ndombele, Davies, Lamela and Eriksen is starting.
This is why Spurs fans have a go at Poch, his lineups are just atrocious.

This is what frustrates me about Poch!
His line ups are so debatable!
Great win midweek and then all these changes to that side! Not even one change, he changes half the team

I love Poch but find it really hard to defend him sometimes. Chopping and changing a side who produced our best performance of the season and bringing in the players who want to leave is the wrong move. Hope I’m wrong but can’t see us getting anything out of this
