The teams have been confirmed ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League clash with Swansea City at Wembley Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino has made three changes to the Spurs side that beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Kieran Trippier, Moussa Sissoko and Dele Alli come in for Serge Aurier, Mousa Dembele and Ben Davies.

It looks like Jan Vertonghen will play on the left of a back four. Alternatively, Heung-Min Son could be used as a left wing-back, although that didn’t go too well against Chelsea in the FA Cup last season.

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



  1. Trippier and Sissoko coming in totally predictable (not by Harry Hotspur though, he’s useless at picking the team); Davies not so predictable. We perhaps wouldn’t use Son as a wing back against Man City/Utd or Liverpool, however, it should be OK against the Swans. Aurier retaining his place puts too much of a damper on Trippier and dilutes the competition between them. Dembele can’t play two games in quick succession. Obviously if Rose was fit he’d be in for Davies. A win puts us in the top four no matter what happens tomorrow. COYS!

  2. Total bollocks this changing and re arrange the team tactics etc

    Stick to the formation that won you matches and the new players fight there way into the team, fucking around with the systems poch you mug

  3. Leaving out Davies was a massive mistake by Pochettino, we started with Son as wing back which didn’t work then he put Trippier on the left, not one cross came in from there, Trippier kept cutting back onto his right, and when Llorente came on not one cross found it’s way into the box. What a waste !!! I love the guy but Pochettino has to take the blame for this one.

    • Totally agree with you..was at the game tonight and left 10mins early..never looked like scoring..i thought the only change would of been sanchez drpped we bring in dele n go to back 4 but no poch is to blame.he could of kept same team as dortmund game n put alli sub doesnt make sense with crappy carabo cup nxt wk..pointless resting serge to then bring him on why not start him..n trippier was awful bad on the right even worse on left just playing simple passes never going forward or making crosses bad day today because of poch poor player tactics..coys..
