Tottenham fans have taken to social media to react to Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to XXX for the club’s clash against Watford on Monday night.
The Lilywhites confirmed their starting XI via their official Twitter account, revealing that the Argentine manager had chosen to make just one change from the side which were beaten by Manchester United in the FA Cup last weekend.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris comes in for Michel Vorm in between the sticks as Spurs look to close the gap on third placed Liverpool, who they currently sit four points and a place behind, but with two games in hand, after the Reds only managed a 0-0 draw against Stoke City at Anfield on Saturday.
Three points against the Hornets would also open the gap between Tottenham and London rivals Chelsea, who are still hunting a top four finish from fifth, to five points, the Blues having closed in on Pochettino and his men in recent weeks.
However, while the Spurs faithful were mostly happy with the starting line up on Twitter, many were calling for Pochettino to hand January signing Lucas Moura a start, having seen him in the starting XI just once in the Premier League, and just nine appearances across all competitions.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets about the Brazilian:
