Tottenham supporters on Twitter were disappointed to be without Eric Dier and Moussa Dembele for the clash against Middlesbrough, but praised the depth of their squad.
Dele Alli and Victor Wanyama were named as the midfield partnership by manager Mauricio Pochettino in a game which also sees striker Harry Kane missing through injury.
The White Hart Lane supporters had faith in Pochettino’s team to pick up three points at the Riverside.
One fan expressed that he was interested to see how Spurs perform without the likes of Kane, Dier and Dembele.
However, another supporter did state that it will be tough for the north London club without their midfield duo.
Here is a selection of messages from Tottenham supporters reacting to the Tottenham team news.
