Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest social media post from Lilywhites journalist Alasdair Gold.

Test your knowledge of these Tottenham players' market values! How much do you think is worth?

In the caption to his post, Gold said that predicting the starting line-up for the game against Roy Hodgson’s side is a “tricky one” because they have “plenty of tired players and the toughest Europa League game yet on Thursday.”

In the article, Gold predicted that Spurs’ line-up would include Hugo Lloris, Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon, Tanguy , Harry Winks, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela, Heung-min Son and Harry Kane.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Spurs fans who were quick to share their thoughts on the matter.

So, what did these Tottenham fans have to say in response to Gold’s post about the Palace match?

“We need to move up the , so the stronger side should be played today. There’s no reason we can’t win both games as our overall quality is there. It’s up to the players to turn up.” 


“no way Hojbjerg gets rested for this game”


Go strong again, maybe rest 1 or two, can’t be giving away relatively easy points. Then rest a few on Thursday


“Go strong tomorrow and rest Thursday. Tomorrow I’d make 2 changes from Fulham (both full backs) Thursday in come Dier, Sissoko, Lucas, Lamela, Bergwijn and Vinicius.”


“I know they’re tired, but, we need to win if we have any hope of moving up the table. Rest Thursday on the bench. Lloris, Aurier, Sanchez, Toby, Reggie; Hojbjerg, Ndombele; Lamela, Lucas, Son; Kane. If we get a good lead early, JM can sub then. COYS!” 


“No way he plays Dier and Sanchez and ndombele winks. Mistakes galore and no cover?” 


“A starting eleven with Dier in it and WITHOUT Højbjerg aswell? Cricket score for Palace”


Looking at the replies to this post from Gold, it appears that some of these Spurs fans think that Jose Mourinho should focus on winning this match against Palace and start the strongest side possible.

Do you think Mourinho should rest some players against Palace?





Given how Spurs are on a successful run of form at the moment, winning their two previous Premier League games, scoring five goals and keeping two clean sheets in the process, it’s understandable why these Spurs fans are desperate to see them win again by any means necessary so they can climb further up the league table.

In our view, Mourinho should play the strongest possible team he can against Palace and hope they can once again replicate their recent run of form.
