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.

With Liverpool beating Bournemouth in the early kick-off, three points will keep Tottenham in control of their own destiny in the race for third.

And give them bragging rights and a huge morale boost ahead of the FA Cup semi-final.

However, fans are up in arms and baffled by Son only making the bench, with Erik Lamela getting the start.

Here are the best reactions from Tottenham fans:
