'No balls', 'Losing faith in Poch' - Tottenham fans fume as 25-year-old starts v Watford
Tottenham fans have blasted manager Mauricio Pochettino for his decision to keep midfielder Christian Eriksen in the starting line-up for the game against Watford this afternoon.
Spurs face the Hornets in Premier League action at Vicarage Road on and will be looking to bounce back from the 2-1 defeat at Leicester on Tuesday.
Pochettino’s side have suffered a dip in from recently and will be looking to return to winning ways against a Watford side who are flying under their highly-rated manager Marco Silva.
Eriksen has been criticised by fans for his poor performances recently and Spurs fans have expressed their anger at Pochettino’s decision to not drop him, or Dele Alli, on Twitter.
Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the best tweets from Spurs fans:
