‘Why’, ‘did not expect’: Some Spurs fans react to ‘interesting’ Mourinho decision for tonight’s game

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have given their thoughts on Jose Mourinho’s team selection for this evening’s Premier League game between Spurs and Manchester City.

Tottenham, currently second, can go top of the table with victory this evening, as well as cementing their title credentials with victory over Pep Guardiola’s side.

Mourinho has opted for a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Hugo Lloris in goal and a back four of Sergio Reguilon, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld and Serge Aurier.

The midfield looks familiar too, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Moussa Sissoko as the central pairing.

Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Tanguy Ndombele are also shoo-ins in the starting XI, while on the right side of attack, Mourinho has opted for Steven Bergwijn.

The Dutchman is making just his second Premier League start of the season, and gets the nod over Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura, both of whom are on the bench.

Here is what some Spurs fans have made of Mourinho’s team selection:


Bergwijn famously scored on his Spurs debut in February this year as the North Londoners ran out 2-0 winners over Man City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
