'Are you for real Poch?', 'Get a grip' – Tottenham fans fume at one starter v Man United
Tottenham fans have reacted to Mauricio Pochettino’s line-up for the crunch Premier League game against Manchester United at Wembley tonight.
And they’re fine with 10/11 of the team, but they’re not looking forward to seeing Kieran Tripper in action.
The team line-up was announced on the official Tottenham Twitter page ahead of the 8pm kick-off on Wednesday night.

Fans will be hoping to catch a glimpse of their new signing Lucas Moura after the club confirmed his deal shortly before the line-up was announced.
He signed a permanent deal with Spurs and his move was announced on the official Tottenham Twitter page too – Moura has joined on a five-and-a-half year deal and will wear the number 27 shirt.
Putting transfers to one side though, Tottenham have a huge game tonight and need to win to get closer to Man United in second.
And Spurs fans are concerned that their 27-year-old right-back is going to struggle against the pace of the United attack, from players like Anthony Martial.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from worried Tottenham fans ahead of the 8pm kick-off.

Decent. Would have preferred Aurier and Rose for this one, but I guess Aurier has a knock and Rose isn't yet fully match-fit. A win tonight would be absolutely massive for our season. #COYS

Look forward to Trippier getting absolutely roasted by Martial just like every time he comes up against a decent winger with pace ????

Trippier was our only option at RB/RWB. Sad but that’s the game. Aurier would have been a terror especially if Rose were to be paired on the left.
