'What, really?', 'Big mistake', 'FFS' – Spurs fans fume at one Poch line-up decision v Man City
Manager Mauricio Pochettino named a strong starting XI to take on Man City in the Saturday evening kick-off in the Premier League, but fans can’t believe he has benched Heung-min Son.
Tottenham host the league leaders at Wembley and it’s a pretty good time to play them.
After almost going the whole season without defeat, bar the one game against Liverpool, Man City have now lost three in a row.
Liverpool beat them twice in the Champions League and Man City cam back from tow goals down to beat them 3-2 in the Premier League last weekend.
The team news was posted on the official Tottenham Twitter page ahead of the 7.45pm kick-off.
