Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the team selection for this evening’s match against Fulham.
Spurs were first expected to make the trip to the Midlands to face Aston Villa, only for the re-arranged game against the Cottagers to go ahead instead.
Tottenham have won just two of their past seven league matches, drawing three times and losing twice which has seen them fall from the top of the Premier League table at the start of December.
Fulham have drawn four successive league games. It’s their longest unbeaten top-flight run since a five-match streak between February and April 2013.
Jose Mourinho has made ten changes to the side which started the FA Cup win against Marine with Moussa Sissoko being the only player to retain his place while the likes of Harry Kane, Tanguy Ndombele and Hugo Lloris all come back in.
This is what some of the North London faithful have had to say about the line up:

What a weird lineup. Why is Sanchez playing?

Standard 7-1-2 formation

Hmm, looks like a diamond midfield with Ndombele at No.10, Sanchez/Dier seems risky but still a very good team, ton of options from the bench which is great, must win game, let’s do this boys! Come On You Spurs! #COYS https://t.co/sVRkpfmyz8
