Tottenham fans react on Twitter as Wanyama benched for Bournemouth clash
By Matt Bullin
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to make their feelings heard about Victor Wanyama’s omission from Spurs’ starting XI against Bournemouth.
Mauricio Pochettino opted to leave the newly fit Kenyan star on the bench as Eric Dier continues in midfield alongside Moussa Dembele.
Tottenham’s boss made just two changes to the side which hammered Watford 4-0 last time out as Harry Kane returns to replace Vincent Jansson and Kyle Walker comes in for Kieran Trippier.
Dier has scored two in two and has been one of Spurs’ top performers this season.
Meanwhile Wanyama has missed Tottenham’s last two Premier League matches due to injury.

Dier, a 17-time England international, has made 40 appearances in all competitions for Pochettino’s side this term, and he has assisted two goals.
Most Tottenham fans were disappointed to see Wanyama left on the bench, although Dier had a few supporters for his continued midfield role.
Here is a selection of their Tweets:

Dier is better in midfield & he should remain there IMO.
