'Why?', 'Is this some sort of sick joke?' – Tottenham fans fume at one Poch decision v Newcastle
Mauricio Pochettino has named a strong line-up to play Newcastle in the Premier League in a match that has far more significance than it should do – however, Spurs fans are worried about Moussa Sissoko starting.
Tottenham’s loss to West Brom, coupled with Chelsea beating Liverpool, has blown the top-four spots wide open and Tottenham now need two wins from their remaining two wins to be sure of a Champions League place.
The team line-up was released on the official Tottenham page on Wednesday evening, ahead of the 8pm kick-off.

Tottenham fans will be nervously looking over their shoulders after the end-of-season has thrown up some typically weird results.
A few weeks ago they were looking a safe bet to finish in the top four but a stunning run of Chelsea form has brought their London rivals right back into the reckoning.
An injury to Mousa Dembele and illness for Eric Dier has necessitated Sissoko coming into the starting XI but fans are nervous.
