There was a sense of panic among Tottenham fans on Twitter when the teams were announced for Spurs’ Premier League meeting with Burnley at White Hart Lane.

Toby Alderweireld’s name was absent from the starting eleven. In fact, the Belgian wasn’t even named among the substitutes, and speculation regarding his whereabouts quickly began to erupt.

Turns out Toby only has a “slight back problem” according to the club. Eric Dier comes in for the Belgian.

Elsewhere, Moussa Sissoko drops to the bench, perhaps harshly. Harry Winks starts with Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele in midfield.

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

  1. POCH KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING HE MUST HAVE PLAN THAT DOESNT INCLUDE SISSOKO AND SLAGGING PLAYERS OFF DOESNT HELP YOU TWITTER RATS SOUND LIKE A LOAD OF GOONERS JUST GOT TO BE HEARD BECAUSE ITS ALL ABOUT YOUWHAT SORT OF SUPPORTERS ARE YOU SHUT UP!!!!

  2. sissoko showed, with a great run and excellent lay – off , his value as a central player rather than on the wing — it would be very foolish business to let him go

  3. Sissoko usually performs better off the bench a bit like Olivier Giroud showed that with the assist for Danny Rose goal however could’ve (should’ve) been sent off already
