Prior to Tottenham’s Premier League clash with Hull City at White Hart Lane, many Spurs fans were calling for Eric Dier to return to the side after he was dropped for the trip to Manchester United at the weekend.

Well, they’ve got their wish. Dier does return, but surprisingly he’ll partner Victor Wanyama in central midfield instead of replacing the Kenyan. Mousa Dembele misses out through injury.

Elsewhere, Moussa Sissoko replaces Heung-Min Son in the only other change from the team that lost at Old Trafford.

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