Mauricio Pochettino has gone with a mix of youth prospects and fringe players for Tottenham’s visit to Liverpool in the Capital One Cup. The side will be captained by Eric Dier for the first time.

Many of the young players — including Cameron Carter-Vickers, Harry Winks and Josh Onomah — are familiar to Tottenham fans having played in the first team intermittently in recent months.

Fringe players such as Kevin Wimmer, Tom Carroll and George-Kevin Nkoudou will be hoping to catch the eye in an attempt to play more regularly in the coming weeks, while Vincent Janssen is still in pursuit of that first goal from open play.

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



  1. Its only the two bob cup. Why are all the girls getting so heated about it. We’re it to be a Champions league tie, FA cup tie or a league game, then it would be a major cause for alarm. I personally couldn’t give a toss if we went out infact, it could be a blessing.
