The most eye-catching piece of team news this week is Ryan Mason’s inclusion in the side. Surprisingly, Eric Dier has kept his place in midfield while Nabil Bentaleb has been dropped to the bench.

Bentaleb wasn’t great at Old Trafford last week so perhaps his exclusion is understandable. Elsewhere, Danny Rose only makes the bench so Ben Davies keeps his place in the starting eleven.

The only other change is in goal, with captain Hugo Lloris returning from injury to makes his 100th Premier League appearances for Spurs.

Here’s how Twitter reacted the the team news…
