Tottenham fans have taken to social media to react to news that Heung-Min Son has been axed for the Champions League clash away to Juventus on Tuesday.

Spurs confirmed their line up for the clash in Turin via their official Twitter account, which revealed that manager Mauricio Pochettino had chosen to make two changes from the side which beat Arsenal over the weekend.

Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela were brought in to replace Kieran Trippier and Son, in the side, as Spurs look to gain an advantage in the first leg of the knock out tie, with the reverse fixture set to take place in three weeks time.

It was the decision to drop the South Korean international to the bench which had fans reacting on Twitter, with many shocked to see Lamela taking his place.

Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

Juventus and Tottenham have never met in a competitive fixture before, and the clash means that Spurs have met both of last season’s Champions League finalists during the current campaign, having drawn and beaten current holders Real Madrid during what was an unbeaten run in the group stages for Pochettino’s men.

Spurs come into the clash off the back of a 1-0 win over north London rivals Arsenal, with Harry Kane having scored the winner with his 32nd goal in his 33 appearances across all competitions, while Juve secured a 2-0 win away at Fiorentina despite being dominated in possession and limited to just four shots.
