Mauricio Pochettino named his starting XI for the Premier League game against Huddersfield and fans can’t believe Fernando Llorente hasn’t even made the bench after his hat-trick heroics against Rochdale in the FA Cup.

Tottenham can leapfrog Liverpool today with their top-four rivals not playing until 5.30pm when they host Newcastle.

Spurs fans will be expecting the three points against a Huddersfield side that is hovering just three points above the relegation zone.

The team news was announced on the official Tottenham Twitter page on Saturday afternoon, ahead of the 3pm kick-off.

Llorente has struggled all season but finally came good – albeit against lower league opposition – with a second-half salvo but it’s not enough to get him on the bench today.

And fans think that’s harsh – especially with a huge Champions League game against Juventus coming up and Harry Kane in need of some rest.
