Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Spurs will go into the match having suffered a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Chelsea in the FA Cup last Saturday.

Their confidence levels will be contrasting to those of Palace’s, who beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield last Sunday.

Striker Christian Benteke netted a brace during that game as he dented his former side’s chances of finishing in the top four.

Nonetheless, over the course of the season, Wanyama has played 41 games in all competitions for his team, scoring three goals.

He will be looking to start his first league match since the 2-0 win at Burnley at the start of this month as he was recovering from injury.

Pochettino started the Kenyan during their defeat in the FA Cup where he put in a reasonable display despite being on the losing side.
