Mauricio Pochettino has named his team to face Southampton tonight and it contains two shock selections.

Having stated that Toby Alderweireld would be fit to return to the team against the Saints, it was a surprise to see the Belgian omitted from the squad, with Eric Dier continuing in central defence alongside Jan Vertonghen.

Perhaps less of a shock, but still raising some eyebrows was the starting place for Moussa Sissoko intead of Heung-Min Son. Sissoko has been in good form of late, mainly from the bench, but many have doubts about the French international after his poor start at the club.

Here’s how Spurs fas reacted to the team news on Twitter.
