Many Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Antonio Conte’s starting line-up against Leeds United in the Italian’s first home game in charge of the Lilywhites in the Premier League.
Seeking a victory that could see them rise to sixth position in the table, Conte’s side drew 0-0 at Goodison Park in the Italian’s first league game in charge just prior to the recent international break, but will now be looking to claim a vital three points against Leeds this afternoon as they aim to reignite their campaign.
Do you think Conte will be backed in January?
In terms of the starting line-up, Conte has now made the decision to include Harry Winks in his team in the clash against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds side this afternoon.
And, after hearing about the Italian’s starting line-up, many Spurs fans took to Twitter to discuss the news.
What did Spurs fans have to say about it?
“We’re done out”
“Hojbjerg’s gonna make forward runs, leaving only Winks behind him to defend. Oh boy”
“It’s the year TWO THOUSAND AND TWENTY ONE and HARRY WINKS is still STARTING??????????????”
“Last chance saloon for Harry winks. If you really desperately want to play for your boyhood club today is the day to stamp@your authority. My prediction: Newcastle’s new number 8 in the summer”
“Harry Winks starts – blood in my eyes”
A record of five wins, one draw and five defeats this season has seen the north London outfit collect 16 points to sit ninth in the table, although they are only one point behind seventh-placed Man United and certainly have a run of winnable games ahead, with Burnley, Brentford and Norwich City on the horizon in their next three.
If they can secure victory against Bielsa’s side this afternoon, it could provide the platform to really kickstart their campaign as they seek to fight for a top four position under Conte in a new era at the N17 club.
