Tottenham fans took to Twitter to tail against the lack of Erik Lamela in the squad for the game against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

The long-term absentee was rumoured to potentially make the bench, as the star was not named in the Under-23s squad to face Manchester City.

Pochettino had said that the Argentinean could make the squad if they didn’t opt to play him in the Under-23s, but instead Lamela is not featuring in either game – and that could hint at more fitness issues.

The right winger has been out since October 2016 with a hip problem, but the midfielder has been back in training for a month.

The other noticeable absentee from the line-up is Danny Rose but Tottenham fans saved most of their displeasure for Lamela.

The 25-year-old has been at the club since making the move from AS Roma in 2013, and is contracted to Spurs until 2020.

Here are some of the best reactions to the 25-year-old not making the squad:
