With the games coming thick and fast in various competitions, Mauricio Pochettino has rotated his Tottenham side again for their Premier League visit to Crystal Palace.
Heung-Min Son earns a start after his excellent display at Leicester in midweek. The South Korean scored one and made another at the King Power Stadium; he starts alongside Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli in attacking midfield as Erik Lamela is dropped to the bench.
Eric Dier moves back into central midfield alongside Mousa Dembele, while Kieran Trippier and Ben Davies fill the full back positions.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to all the team news.
#thfc Son deservedly starts after goal + assist midweek. Little to pick between the FBs at the moment. Dembele, rather than Alli, may be DM.

Arguably our strongest team selected, great to field the midfield trio of Dier, Dembele & Deli Ali, Trippier also deserves his place. #THFC

Expected that XI except the LB, surprised to see Rose start after recent rotation. *Should* be enough vs a depleted Palace side. #COYS

Barring the full backs who are pretty much 50:50 that's our strongest possible team right?

No line up meltdown? Have i logged into the wrong account?

Hmmm not sure I approve of benching Lamela but can't deny Son deserves a start after Leicester. Strong XI

Trippier rather than Walker against Zaha is a surprise given Rose isn't rotated on the other side.

No complaints with that team,let's do it! #COYS

#thfc Son deserves to start ahead of Lamela, who finished 2015 in fine form but hasn't carried that into the new year.

Lamela needs a rest, he's doing decent and he'll be back. Right move by poch Gotta remember guys this is a squad game

Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier both reaching milestones today playing 150 and 50 games respectively. Hope both play many many more!

Pleased with that team. Expecting big things from Son today. SO many Palace supporting colleagues – I need this win. #COYS

Imagine the fuss a Trippier start would have caused in September. Patience isn't a virtue for Spurs fans. Lets have it #coys

Happy with the team sheet! Son gets the start ahead of Lamela. Why no walker in XI or bench though? #COYS
