Many Tottenham Hotspur fans are annoyed and concerned on Twitter with Dan Kilpatrick’s latest claim.
The season started with so much promise and excitement for Spurs as they won their opening three games in the league while keeping three clean sheets. All without their new defensive signing Cristian Romero who is still yet to start a league game, but that seems a distant memory now given Spurs’ recent form.
Will Tottenham finish in the top six this season?
Their swift turn in form began at Selhurst Park when they were beaten 3-0 by Crystal Palace and then rescued a point away to Rennes on Thursday evening. On top of that, Spurs appear to be in the midst of an selection crisis given their number of absentees which includes players such as Son Heung-min, Eric Dier, the aforementioned Romero, Davinson Sanchez and Lucas Moura for a variety of reasons.
Kilpatrick has therefore put out on Twitter what team he thinks could lineup for Spurs against Chelsea on Sunday, and it’s safe to say a lot of fans aren’t confident:
What have these Tottenham fans had to say?
“That is a truest horrendous lineup let’s pray it’s not that”
“Idc if romero comes arrives back an hour before kick off, he’ll still do better than ben Davies.”
“If this is how the team lines up on Sunday I will have a panic attack on spot. We cannot CANNOT face Chelsea with this.”
“That back 4 scares the life out of me, the midfield is beautiful, the attack is gonna go one way or the other”
“That team would genuinely struggle in the Championship”
Tottenham’s trio of South American players including Romero, Lo Celso and Sanchez have been out in Croatia training with one of Tottenham’s coaches so they did not have to isolate upon their return to England, and with them due back on Saturday, Nuno may have no choice but to throw some of them straight in at the deep end against Chelsea despite not having much playing time recently.
There are fewer tougher teams that Spurs could have come up against this weekend in Chelsea given they are yet to lose, have only shipped one goal in the league this season and are the current European champions. So if Spurs are to have a load of absentees, it may be a tough 90 minutes for fans and players.
