Tottenham fans took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to speak of their excitement of Georges-Kevin N’Koudou starting in the EFL Cup clash against Liverpool at Anfield.

The 21-year-old was involved in a lengthy transfer saga in the summer, which was finally concluded on deadline-day.

Fans will have been excited to see what he can do following all the stories and he has been named alongside 10 other changes in the team, with Eric Dier the only one to keep his place from Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Bournemouth.

Fans took to social media to share that they hope N’Koudou can do well against a Liverpool side which also contains some fringe players and youngsters.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

N’Koudou, 21, had previously made four substitute appearances for the club, but is now lining up for his first start.

It is set to be a close encounter in the EFL Cup despite the weakened teams, with a number of players looking to impress their respective managers.
