Mauricio Pochettino has made four changes to the team that beat Norwich City 3-0 in midweek for the visit of Watford.

Kieran Trippier, Ben Davies, Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli all come in, while Dele Alli only makes the bench. It could simply be rotation, but perhaps Alli is only among the substitutes because of the dizziness that forced him off at Carrow Road on Tuesday.

Ryan Mason is also on the bench after returning from a long term injury. Here’s how Twitter reacted to all the team news.

  1. We have a chance to go second in the league by today. FOCUS…..FOCUS……and FOCOS 101% on every game is just my word and play your normal game out there. Just follow Poch’s instructions and stay tight at defence and midfield. Dembele needs to give support to the the two CB too because there are facing a much more resilience team. Be careful of their front 2 men of Deeney and Ighalo. COYS!

  2. Not good enough in the 1st half, someone needs to step up and do something in this game. We need to open up their defence and play more compact one or two touch quick football in and around their box. Instead of shooting towards goal, a few that ha been save by Gomes, place the ball into the net. Read the goalie’s position and Dembele needs to attack towards goal more by himself. In this scenario, Kane and Lamela are being marked and is the opportunity for him to nick a goal or 2. For about Chadli, Son needs to come in for him in the 2nd half before is too late.
