Tottenham fans have wished Moussa Sissoko luck on Twitter after the attacker shared a post on the social media site ahead of the Hull clash on Wednesday.
Supporters had previously urged manager Mauricio Pochettino to start the 27-year-old attacker against the Tigers.
The £30million summer signing had unimpressed in his first 11 appearances for the club.
However, he gave a strong performance in the 1-0 defeat against Manchester United on Sunday, while other forwards in the line-up struggled.
His post stating “matchday”on his personal Twitter account just two hours before the Wednesday fixture would now suggest that he is set to play a part.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Tottenham are strong favourites for the clash against Hull at White Hart Lane.
The two clubs are separated by 14 places and 15 points in the league and Pochettino will be looking for a similar performance to the recent 5-0 victory over Swansea.
A win for Spurs could see them leapfrog Manchester City to fourth in the table depending on the result between City and Watford.
Meanwhile, Hull would move out of the relegation zone and up to 17th if they earned a shock victory.
