In response to the 2-1 defeat against Monaco in midweek, Mauricio Pochettino has shuffled his Tottenham side in a number of areas as Sunderland visit White Hart Lane.

Jan Vertonghen has been moved to left back, meaning Eric Dier will partner Toby Alderweireld in the middle. Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele start in central midfield.

Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela have both been dropped to the bench. Moussa Sissoko makes his first start for the club. Heung-Min Son also starts.

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



  1. The right team for a typical ‘dog eat dog’ Premiership game…who got the most yellows?
    Sonny gets the plaudits (well deserved) but Walker & Sissoko also, owned the right wing.
    In the past we would have ‘f*****’ this up…well done Poch.
    Still concerned about our conversion rate however….
