Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this evening’s round of 16 first leg tie against Dinamo Zagreb.
Dinamo Zagreb have lost nine of their last 10 matches against English sides in European competition, winning the other game 2-1 against Arsenal in the Champions League group stages in 2015.
Jose Mourinho has made seven changes in total from the side which beat Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday.
Despite the North London derby at the Emirates looming on Sunday, the Portuguese has decided to start both Harry Kane and Heung-min Son this evening while Gareth Bale takes his place among the substitutes.
There are also starts for Serge Aurier, Eric Dier, Tanguy Ndombele, Dele Alli, Moussa Sissoko, Ben Davies and Erik Lamela.
This is what some of the North London faithful have had to say about the line up that will take on the Croats:
SERGE IS BACK

Would've liked Kane to be rested for Sunday

This is what I don't get with mourinho were playing a farmer's league team we brought in vinicas a backup yet he starts him and it is clear son needs a rest especially with the nld coming we have bergwijn who needs a game aswell. You watch an injury will happen

Pleased with a strong line-up, let’s go win the tie tonight no fuss we can rest everyone 2nd leg, also Toby/Højbjerg/Bale not starting means they will be on Sunday which is great news, big game for Dele tonight, needs to take it by the scruff of the neck, let’s do this! #COYS https://t.co/3YUdWUYjt9
