Unexpectedly, Harry Kane starts for Spurs at Colchester, captaining a much-changed side.

Christian Eriksen also surprisingly starts, as does Eric Dier, who partners Kevin Wimmer at centre back.

Nabil Bentaleb gets a rare start, coupled with Tom Carroll in central midfield. Nacer Chadli also starts after scoring twice in two games.

Prior to the game, news circulated that Fulham’s Moussa Dembele is set to sign for Tottenham, rejoining his current club on loan until the summer. Spurs could certainly do with him now so that Kane could be rested.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to all the team news.
