Tottenham host Norwich City on Wednesday night in the Premier League – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have urged manager Jose Mourinho to start January signing Gedson Fernandes.
Spurs go into the fixture sat eighth in the Premier League table, but a victory will draw them to within six points of fourth-placed Chelsea.
The North London club completed an 18-month loan deal this month to sign Fernandes from Benfica and he made his debut at the weekend in the goalless draw against Watford.
Fernandes was handed a late 10-minute cameo during his first taste of English football and showed a couple of neat touches on the ball.
The 21-year-old arrives as a highly-rated young talent that is a great dribbler of the ball, who looks to create from the centre of the park and can drive forward.
He is a box-to-box midfielder that has plenty of competition for places in the Spurs team and has to impress his manager Mourinho.
The Portuguese youngster has made a name for himself as a bright talent in his homeland and will now be hoping for similar success in the Premier League.
A selection of Spurs supporters on social media are desperate to see Fernandes thrown into the starting XI for the first time in midweek.
Mourinho watched his team draw 2-2 away to bottom of the table Norwich earlier in the season, but the pressure is massively on to get a victory this time around and end a run of four league games without a win.
Here are some Spurs fans on Fernandes:
Gedson and Winks need to start against Norwich. If we win convincingly with two CM’s, we need to keep that going for the rest of the season – we were best at the beginning of Jose when we played it. #COYS

I know that neither of them are DMs, but it’s Norwich at home for Christ’s sake, so now that the latter is fit, you can bet your inexplicably tiny knackers that I want to see a midfield pivot of Gedson Fernandes and Tanguy Ndombele tomorrow 👍 #COYS pic.twitter.com/re0mZDW7q7
