Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to today’s team news announcement.
Spurs will be somewhat glad to focus on the FA Cup following their recent struggles in the Premier League.
After being beaten by lower league opposition in the Carabao Cup earlier in the season under Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho will be looking for his side to avoid the banana skin that is Middlesbrough.
Mourinho was unable to call upon a number of his players due to injury including Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Ben Davies and Tanguy Ndombele.
The Spurs boss has named a strong side to begin their cup quest with Christian Eriksen starting his third game in a row while Heung-min Son returns following his three match suspension.
17-year-old academy product Troy Parrott is named among the subs to provide the striking cover.
#THFC: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Dier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen (C), Sessegnon, Winks, Eriksen, Lucas, Dele, Son.
