By Amir Mir
Tottenham take on Watford in their crucial Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon – and fans have reacted to Vincent Janssen starting.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are hoping to close the seven-point gap on leaders Chelsea by beating the Hornet’s at White Hart Lane.
Spurs recorded a remarkable 3-1 win at Swansea on Wednesday night despite being 1-0 down after 88 minutes.
Striker Janssen came off the bench to help his team in their confidence-boosting comeback as he is selected to start alongside versatile attacker Son Heung-Min.
England international Harry Kane is on the substitutes bench as fans stated that Janssen deserves to be named in the starting XI.
