Tottenham fans react on Twitter as midfield ace starts v Bayern Leverkusen
By Amir Mir
Dele Alli has been named in the Tottenham starting line-up to take on Bayern Leverkusen at Wembley – and fans on Twitter have welcomed his selection for the Champions League group game.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side take on the Bundesliga giants, as they aim to get their first Champions League win under their belt on home soil.
Spurs have had a mixed bag of results in their first three games, losing to Monaco at Wembley, beating CSKA 1-0 in Russia and drawing 0-0 against Leverkusen in the reverse fixture.
Alli, 20, has started in all three fixtures for the north London club, as he hopes to make an impact on Tuesday night, in front of 90,000 supporters.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
