Tottenham fans want Japhet Tanganga to start Chelsea clash

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to insist that Japhet Tanganga has to come back into the side’s starting lineup this weekend after missing Wednesday’s defeat to RB Leipzig.

In truth, Spurs were largely grateful to Hugo Lloris for producing a number of impressive saves. But he was unable to keep the winner out of the back of the net as Timo Werner converted a penalty during the second-half.

The penalty was awarded after a poor challenge from Ben Davies. And the foul appears to have prompted a number of Spurs fans to implore Mourinho to pick Tanganga against Chelsea this weekend.
