Tottenham fans are still holding their breath until they discover the full extent of the injury Toby Alderweireld suffered at West Brom on Saturday.

Thankfully Mauricio Pochettino claims it isn’t a big problem. Still, Alderweireld certainly wasn’t ready to travel with the Spurs squad for a tough Champions League test against Bayern Leverkusen.

Eric Dier replaces Alderweireld at centre back, while Cameron Carter-Vickers is chosen ahead of Kevin Wimmer on the bench to the bewilderment of many supporters.

Pochettino’s decision can likely be put down to Carter-Vickers being right-footed. That means he is able to deputise for Dier if another injury occurs, while Ben Davies can fill in on the left side of central defence, rendering Wimmer’s selection needless.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Dier’s selection and all the rest of the team news.
