Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this afternoon’s match against Manchester United.
Tottenham are seeking a league double over Manchester United for the first time since the 1989-90 season, following their 6-1 thrashing of the former Premier League champions at Old Trafford earlier this season.
Manchester United’s only victory in their past eight league visits to Spurs came at Wembley in January 2019 (D4, L3).
United are on a club record run of 22 away league games unbeaten (W14, D8). It’s the third longest away run in English top-flight history, bettered only by Arsenal’s unbeaten streaks of 23 and 27 early this century.
Jose Mourinho has given Eric Dier a first Premier League start since the West Ham defeat and partners Joe Rodon, while Serge Aurier comes back in at right-back. Heung-min Son is also fit enough to be included in the starting eleven following his recent hamstring issues.
This is what some of the North London faithful have had to say about the line up:
Dier = losing this game. What has Toby done to be dropped.

That defence terrifies me (but, let's be honest, seeing ANY combination of our defenders playing is terrifying, so Jose can't win), but the rest looks… okay. That being said, not confident at all, so hope we go out and prove me wrong… #EPL #TOTMUN #THFC #COYS

What has Alderweireld done that’s so bad?
Dier… Come on man ffs.

That's it. Dier will do something stupid and give a penalty away. Or Aurier will do a rash challenge and give a penalty away. Why is Toby on the bench, he should be starting ?

Happy with the team… Dier is a question mark but that team should be good enough to do something 👍

Lucas on the right over Bale. Toby on the bench. Yea we are done. Not watching this shit.

He's an arrogant manager, no Toby again and Dier in, instead I'll give the defence five minutes today, cannot wait until the 🤡 is gone

Why can he never just pick the correct defenders every fucking time there’s someone who shouldn’t be on the pitch

Can Mourinho drop this weird agenda against Alderweireld and start selecting him? Crucial game against United and he picks the fridge…
