Tottenham fans have taken to social media to react to news that both Danny Rose and Ben Davies have been named to start in the club’s League Cup clash with West Ham on Wednesday evening.

The Lilywhites confirmed their starting XI via their official Twitter account, with Mauricio Pochettino choosing to make seven changes from the side which confidently saw off Liverpool over the weekend.

Perhaps the most notable inclusion is that of Danny Rose, who makes his first start for the club in just under nine months after his injury layoff.

However he is surprisingly joined by fellow left back Ben Davies in the starting line up, who himself is returning from a layoff, the Welsh international having suffered from illness to keep him out of the last two matches.

Fans were perplexed by the decision to start the duo, but were also delighted to see Rose back in the starting XI, and turned to Twitter to voice their opinions.

Spurs come into the game off the back of a 4-1 win over Liverpool which is in stark contrast to West Ham’s last match, which saw them humbled at home by Brighton in a 3-0 defeat.

The two sides have already met once this season, with Spurs coming out on top in a 3-2 win at the London Stadium, despite having seen Serge Aurier sent off for two bookable offences.

Pochettino’s side saw off Barnsley in a nervy 1-0 win at Wembley in the last round of the League Cup, while West Ham have beaten both Cheltenham and Bolton to reach the round of 16.

In other Tottenham team news, this duo are a doubt for the club’s clash with Manchester United on Saturday.
