'I'm gonna burst', 'Utter mayhem' – Tottenham fans in bits over one Poch decision v Rochdale
Mauricio Pochettino announced his starting XI for the fifth round FA Cup game against Rochdale on Sunday afternoon, and fans are delighted to see January signing Lucas Moura make his debut.
Spurs travel to bottom of League One Rochdale on Sunday in a game they’ll be expecting to cruise past.
Their reward would be a decent quarter final match against either Swansea or Sheffield Wednesday as they avoided all the big guns in the draw.
It’s now starting to look like a real possibility for Pochettino’s first trophy and Tottenham’s first since the League Cup in 2008.
However, they have to get past Rochdale first and Tottenham fans are disappointed that Fernando Llorente is leading the line.
The team news was announced on the Tottenham twitter page:

One consolation is the full debut for new January signing Lucas Moura, who starts his first game after a short cameo in the 2-2 draw with Juventus on Tuesday.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from Tottenham fans ahead of the 4pm kick-off on Sunday:
