Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reactions to the team news for this afternoon’s North London derby against Arsenal.
Jan Vertonghen has managed to recover from his hip injury, but Harry Winks misses out from the match day squad with a similar problem and Victor Wanyama deputises.
Kieran Trippier keeps his place in the starting eleven despite his horror showing in midweek during the defeat to Chelsea which has left some fans baffled by Mauricio Pochettino’s decision.
Spurs need to beat their most hated rivals to extend their points advantage over them in the Premier League table to seven, defeat would cut the gap to just a single point.
Tottenham Hotspur have won five of their last seven home Premier League games against Arsenal (D1 L1), including each of the last two; only once in their top-flight history have Spurs won three consecutively at home against the Gunners (between January 1960 and August 1961).
Here’s how some Spurs fans have reacted on social media.

If trippier actually bending the ball into the corner of his own net isn’t enough to get him dropped then I can only assume he has various members of Pochettino’s family locked away
