Antonio Conte named his side to take on Crystal Palace this afternoon, with Ben Davies being left on the bench, leaving the fans really annoyed.
Winning games in hand would move Spurs above Arsenal into the top four and into Champions League qualification, so this is a must win game.
That might explain the frustration amongst the supporters, who didn’t hide how they felt. When the club Tweeted the team news out, the supporters rushed to the replies to air their annoyance with the manager’s decision.
What the Spurs fans said about the Palace line-up
“Can’t believe I’m sad Davies isn’t playing.” @HmsTomm16
“Davies not starting…” @SoulsHeartless
“Where’s daddy Davies?!” @thfcsxn
“What a team, missing Davies though.” @THFC_fan7
“Great team besides Davies.” @josh_wiggan
“Never thought I’d miss not seeing Ben Davies in the starting lineup.” @Mickey01023499
“What timeline are we living in when I’m terrified if Davies isn’t starting?” @smallestspur
He’s been far from a regular this season, playing 16 times in all competitions, but only seven in the Premier League.
The fact the fans are disappointed he isn’t playing says it all, with Spurs supporters clearly rating him highly and wanting him in.
He played in a different role to his natural one last time out against Liverpool, moving inside to the centre back spot, with the fans evidently impressed with what they saw.
