Can we leave him at Wembley? What is wrong with Poch? – Spurs fans fume as one player starts v Leicester
Mauricio Pochettino announced his starting XI to take on Leicester in the last game of the Premier League, and fans are in two minds about his line-up.
On the one hand they’re loving Lucas Moura coming in and Toby Alderweireld getting to say goodbye – if he does end up leaving in the summer.
However, they’re not happy with Moussa Sissoko keeping his place, with Victor Wanyama on the bench.
Tottenham need three points to be sure of third place in the league after starting today just two points ahead of Liverpool in fourth, and with a worse goal difference.
Liverpool are at home to Brighton and are expected to win and score heavily.
The team news was announced on the official Tottenham Twitter page on Sunday afternoon:

The battle for third is the main attraction but Tottenham striker Harry Kane and his Liverpool counterpart Mohamed Salah have a side battle as well, with Salah three goals ahead in the race for the Golden Boot.
He’s reportedly been put on penalties to ensure he finishes above Kane, but kane will be hoping he blanks and that he can knock in at least a hat-trick today for a share of the spoils.
Meanwhile, here are the best reactions from Tottenham fans hating on Sissoko ahead of the 3pm kick-off:
