After Wednesday’s Capital One Cup defeat to Arsenal – sorry for the reminder – Mauricio Pochettino has reintroduced key players for Manchester City’s visit in the Premier League.
The entire back five has been changed, with Hugo Lloris back in goal and captaining the side. Danny Rose is on the bench despite his good performance in midweek.
Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-Min and Erik Lamela start together for the first time in attacking midfield behind Harry Kane.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the team news…
Excellent team! #COYS

That's the XI I'd have gone for today, well done Poch. A lot of trust placed in Alli to play CM vs a top side, test for Dier too. #COYS

#thfc Joe Hart on the bench for Man City, which is a surprise. Looks like Yaya Toure will play in an advanced role behind Aguero.

I never thought the day would come where I felt a bit worried that Nacer Chadli isn't starting.

Should still be winning this but that's a decent team Spurs have put out

People digging out Davies. It should be noted that same back 4 have kept back to back clean sheets in the League and he was decent V Palace
