Mauricio Pochettino has announced his starting XI to take on Swansea in the FA Cup quarter-final, and fans are deeply concerned about Moussa Sissoko starting.
The game plays out at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday lunchtime and the two teams are playing for a place in the semis, which ironically will be held at Tottenham’s home ground this season.
The team news was released on the official Tottenham Twitter account ahead of the 12.15pm kick-off.

This year’s FA Cup represents a real opportunity for Tottenham to win a trophy and get that particular monkey off their back.
If they progress – and they’re overwhelming favourites – they could draw either Wigan or Southampton, which would be a great route through to a major final.
However, fans have pointed to Sissoko as the one weak point in the team, and are not happy Pochettino has started him.
Here are the best reactions to the Tottenham line-up:
I strongly believe that sissoko is the worst person to wear the shirt. And that the funny think is that he is picked over the best box to box midfielder In the league

We don't have a game in two weeks yet he rests Lloris for Vorm, starts Sissoko over Dembele and Lamela over Alli.
Don't we want to win the FA Cup?
