Tottenham Hotspur fans on have been responding to the latest team concerning the club ahead of their Premier League clash against Manchester United. 

This comes after the official Spurs Twitter account shared a post on their page revealing the starting line-up that Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has selected to start the match against his former side.

Spurs have had quite a few odd players over the last ten years, but can you remember them? Here is the first one, who is this former Tottenham man?

The Spurs starting XI includes Hugo Lloris, Serge , Joe Rodon, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Tanguy Ndombele, , Lucas Moura, Heung-min Son and .

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Tottenham fans who were quick to share their response to this latest team news, particularly with the inclusion of Dier.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in response to this team selection for the United game? 

“WHY DIER”

@thfcnathann

“Dier.. announce loss”

@COYSonny7

“Dier?! And No Toby and Tanganga in this CRITICAL game?!”

@seankjensen

“Dier back, advantage Manchester United”

@thfcem

“Dier = losing this game. What has Toby done to be dropped.”

@Rory4Spurs

“DIER NOOOOO I’m not looking forward to this now…”

@OfficialCHall

Looking at the replies to this post from the official Spurs Twitter account, it appears that they are not happy that Mourinho has selected Dier to start in defence against United and are now not confident in their chances of winning the match.

Given how Dier hasn’t played a game for Spurs since their 3-0 defeat against Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League last month where he only managed to earn himself a fairly uninspiring match rating of 6.38/10, it’s understandable why these Spurs fans aren’t particularly pleased to see him starting against United.

Are you confident Spurs can beat Man United with Eric Dier in defence?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Moving forward, everyone at the club will undoubtedly be hoping that Dier will prove these doubters wrong and that this team that Mourinho has selected will have enough to beat the Manchester club and move closer to a top-four place.
