Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social media to share their reaction to tonight’s team selection vs Brighton.
Spurs return to Premier League action following Thursday night’s surprise defeat to Royal Antwerp in the Europa League.
Mourinho has decided to drop Dele Alli, Carlos Vinicius and Steven Bergwijn completely from the squad while Erik Lamela, Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Eric Dier all start.
Brighton have not won in the league since their second game of the campaign and have been struggling to find the back of the net since.
Brighton are without skipper Lewis Dunk this evening, with the defender serving a suspension after his red card in the derby draw at Crystal Palace.
Tottenham have won each of their last four home league games against Brighton (including all three in the Premier League), since a 0-1 loss in October 1981.
This is what some of the North London faithful had to say about the starting eleven.
COYS!!!! 3 points is a must, no more dropping points away. These are the ones we need to wrap up. Get it done lads #Coys ?

Lamela pointless in a game where we should have more of the ball then the other team….

Great 11 ?

Sanchez days are numbered at this club. We can get half of what we paid for him rip their hand off

No Vinicius on the bench ???
Also not sure what Doherty’s done to warrant starting over Aurier at this point tbh

Where is Vinicius?

A bit gutting on Vinicius to not even make the bench. He didn’t do much Thursday because we didn’t have the service

Some players here need to be sold winks, davies, and maybe sell sissoko and either lucas or lamela and make top signings on the January transfer we need Jose to use his name and credit effectively and attract big names to our squad

Decent line up, I’d swap bale for lamela and Lo Celso for sissoko and we have a class line up
