Mauricio Pochettino has made several changes for the visit of Arsenal in the Capital One Cup.

The alterations in defence are most notable. Vorm, Trippier, Fazio, Wimmer and Rose come in for Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Davies.

It’s good to see Danny Rose back in the team, but I can’t be the only one concerned about that centre back pairing. Thankfully Arsenal have made plenty of changes too, with Alexis Sanches left on the bench.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the team news…



  1. Who justifies playing anything other than Spurs best team against Arsenal

    This is hugely disrespecting the fans

    Spurs lost because we tried to introduce inadequate players

    There is a reason you don’t see these guys week in and week out in the PL because they are simply not good enough

    Pochetino team selection simply says “not bothered” but that is the opposite of what the Spurs fans demand
    For me get rid of the manager who doesn’t recognise the fixture being the most important of the season
