Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this afternoon’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace.
Tottenham have started a league campaign with three wins and three clean sheets for the first time in their history. The only teams to have begun a top-flight campaign with four wins and no goals against are Aston Villa in 1900-01, Ipswich Town in 1974-75, Chelsea in 2005-06 and Manchester City in 2015-16.
Palace are the first side to start a top-flight campaign with four consecutive London derbies. They are without a win in their last 11 such games in the Premier League.
The North Londoners are without Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez since they need to follow Covid-19 protocols having played for their countries and are currently in Croatia to avoid the 10-day hotel quarantine period in England.
Nuno has handed a debut to Emerson Royal who starts at right back.
Bergwijn and Son miss out through injury.
Here is what some of the North London faithful had to say about Nuno’s team selection:
MARKANDAY ON THE BENCHHHH

Dele moves further forward on place of Son.

How has our bench got so weak

Tiny bit disappointed ngl, but I think it'll do OK. Lots of pressure mainly on tanganga at the back. If Dier can hold the defense together (I know) it'll be alright 🤞

Would have loved to see Gil start but nice to see Markanday, Roden and Tanguy on the bench

Højbjerg gonna be more advanced with Skipp and Winks in the team hopefully. Good to see Ndombele, Bryan & Markanday in the squad too

Well I see that midfield creating lots of chances for us today! Banking on Palace still being in post Hodgson transition and not being tough to beat as they usually are with us
