With the games coming thick and fast Mauricio Pochettino has rotated his Tottenham side, who are still competing in three competitions.
Danny Rose and Kyle Walker replace Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier for Spurs’ trip to Manchester City. Dele Alli returns to the side too, with Nacer Chadli relegated to the bench.
Perhaps the biggest talking point is the inclusion of Heung-Min Son as opposed to the hard working Erik Lamela.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to all the team news.

Only mildly surprising call is Son playing and not Lamela – but this is the team I would have picked. https://t.co/fVlG55WdVD

Probably would have started Lamela over Son tbh

Wimmer aside, and the usual Davies/Rose & Lamela/Son debate, that's our strongest team. Let's do this! #COYS

City a completely different side with Kompany and Silva. Confidence that team will have with those in a huge difference.

Poch has selected the more mobile/quicker players in the areas where there was question marks. Son > Lamela. Rose/Walker > Davies/Trippier

Best possible team Pochettino could've picked minus Vertonghen who's injured of course.
Now to do the job in hand.

That team eh? Fuck me. He picked him and didn't pick him or that one. #COYS

Bar De Bruyne that's arguably City's strongest starting 11. All their big hitters start ? Big test for Spurs!

Strong #MCFC team. Might depend on level of Kompany's fitness but clearly looking to be more solid with Fernando/Fernandinho both starting.

Must get at them today put them under pressure, their defence is not good so let's have a real go, to Dare is to Do COYSSSSS

I reckon this is the right team to face City. Because Poch picked it and he knows more about it than me. Or you. https://t.co/NZTfQuRFED
