Some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this afternoon’s Premier League match against Chelsea at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham have conceded more Premier League goals against Chelsea (103) than they have versus any other opponent, while they’ve only lost more games in the competition against Man Utd (36) than against the Blues (31).
Chelsea have won their last two Premier League away games against Tottenham, as many as in their previous 13 visits (D5 L6). They last won three in a row at Spurs between April 2004 and August 2005.
Nuno Espirito Santo has really gone for an attacking look to his team, having made four changes to the side which lost 3-0 at Crystal Palace last weekend.
Romero, Ndombele, Lo Celso and Son all come into the team to give it a much different feel than the one which lost at Selhurst Park.
This is how some of the North London faithful reacted to which players will square off against Thomas Tuchel’s side in N17:
Swear someone either spiked nuno’s prematch coffee or switched the lineups. How is it so attacking. Love it.

Like trying to fix the creativity issues we had last week, hopefully he hasn’t overcompensated and it’s not too unbalanced. COYS 🙏🏻
