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…

Judging by the sides Tottenham and Arsenal have put out, you're best off getting some change down on >5 goals if you can find the odds.

Not really fussed who plays today, just as long as they smash Arsenal to pieces.

Well, I guess that line-up gives us a solid excuse if we get turned over. Still: #COYS!

Agreement between Spurs and Arsenal only to have 4 first XI players each in the starting line up?
