Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to Antonio Conte’s team selection for this evening’s cup tie against Chelsea.

A place in the final of the Carabao Cup is at stake, with Chelsea currently ahead 2-0 on aggregate following last week’s disastrous display by the North Londoners at Stamford Bridge.

Tottenham have lost just one of their five League Cup home matches against Chelsea (W2 D2), losing 3-0 in a quarter-final replay in January 1991 but have already lost twice to Thomas Tuchel’s side this season.

Conte was unable to call upon the recently-sidelined Cristian Romero, Steven Bergwijn, Eric Dier and Heung-Min Son.
