Tottenham fans have taken to social media to react over the axing of Heung-min Son from the starting XI against Leicester on Tuesday.
The Lilywhites confirmed their line up for the clash with the Foxes via their official Twitter account, which revealed that manager Mauricio Pochettino had chosen to make four changes from the draw with West Brom over the weekend.

Kieran Trippier, Ben Davies, Harry Winks and Son all dropped out of the side, with Serge Aurier, Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele and Moussa Sissoko chosen by the Argentinian manager to replace them.
However it was the decision to leave South Korean international Son on the bench which infuriated the Tottenham faithful, and they turned to Twitter to voice their frustrations.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

Son must look at Sissoko playing and wonder why the hell he gets less game time.

The winger has been a key player for Spurs this season, having made 18 appearances across all competitions, and has turned out in all but one of their 13 league games so far, netting twice.
He played the full 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw against West Brom at Wembley on Saturday, a result which saw Spurs slip down to fifth in the top flight table after Arsenal secured a late win over Burnley, leapfrogging their north London rivals into fourth.
