Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to Antonio Conte’s team selection for this evening’s Premier League match against Leicester City.
Tottenham head into the fixture in sixth place in the table knowing that a victory over Brendan Rodgers’ side would leapfrog rivals Arsenal.
Conte’s men did not play at the weekend due to the controversial postponement of the north London derby while the Foxes are also off the back of a Covid-enforced break, having seen Saturday’s game against Burnley called off.
The Italian has decided to pick a midfield trio of Oliver Skipp, Harry Winks and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, which is devoid of creativity while Sergio Reguilon returns in the left wing-back role.
Tanguy Ndombele is left out once again, while young striker Dane Scarlett is named among the substitutes (Spurs official).
This is what some fans have had to say about the side which takes to the field under the lights of the King Power Stadium.
Absolutely defensive lineup . it’s will be very tough to make some offensively active. Sess can play as winger also ….

Not a single attacking midfielder in the lineup. Kane and Lucas starve for service and stand around for 90 minutes. We lay back, Leicester runs us ragged, Maddison pops one in late after turning Davies inside out, and we lose 1-0.

This is only gonna work if we play Emerson and Reggie as basically wingers

3-5-2 that worked so well against Liverpool, I’m happy. Solid base with Winks feeding front two. https://t.co/7ZpN6bndod

Skipp, Hojbjerg AND Winks??? That is sufferball to the max.

Royal and Reggie better be on their game tonight going both ways. Cos can't see much going through the middle when we are attacking.
