Confirmed Spurs XI vs United: Toby Benched
By Harry Hotspur -

Lloris (C), Aurier, Rodon, Dier, Reguilon, Højbjerg, Ndombele, Lo Celso, Lucas, Son, Kane.

Tottenham Hotspur host Manchester United in match-day 31 of the Premier League on Sunday 11th April, 4:30 pm at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The bookies have us at 15/8 and United at 6/4. If one is looking for value then I’d take Sonny as First Goalscorer at 11/2 is worth a tickle.

Spurs currently sit in 7th place in the table having drawn against Newcastle United 2-2 last time out, while the visitors are in 2nd after their 2-1 win against Brighton and Hove Albion.

HOPE Manchester United’s away-form against Spurs isn’t what it used to be, with just the one win in the last eight games away from Old Trafford, with the last win coming back in January 2019.

SOME FORMS’ BETTER THAN NONE Spurs have played well at home recently, where we’ve won three straight Premier League games, although our last 3 defeats have been against sides near the top of the table.

That is just beyond comprehension to have Dier and Rodon as a CB pairing. Their is no excuse for using Dier instead of Toby for a match of this importance. He is just being bl**dy minded now and his ego needs to step aside

I really have lost patience and sadly interest in us this season. I’ve wanted to back Jose but yet another defensive change which makes no sense again.

I’m sorry…. It’s a no from me.

Neeext !

Jose is resting Toby for the CITEH game. Utd win and just watch the Media say how they still might catch Citeh for the Title. I kid you not.

According to PA, this is the 16th different defensive combination Mourinho has picked this season. The only other time he went with this four was the 0-0 draw at Chelsea in November.

I’m beginning to wonder has Jose a few quid on the spammers for top four. Playing dier our worst centre half along with rodon I feel sorry for Hugo. Why not play Hart in goals to be sure united win. Not looking forward to this.

Two centre backs who can’t pass the ball and panic when pressed.I predict a shock win for us then.

If Jose Mourinho cannot see that Toby Alderweireld is a better CB than Eric Dier, then he should retire from management. The continued, inexplicable, benching of our best CB, whilst continuing to play journeymen like Sanchez and Dier, who are markedly inferior, beggars belief.

A quick quiz question for Mourinho. Who gave away the ridiculously clumsy penalty that cost us 3 points at home against United last season? Yes, notwithstanding his stated desire to see his ashes scattered on the pitch at THFC stadium, the correct answer, is Eric Dier!

I’d take a 2-0 loss now, unless they go down to 10 men in the first 15 we could be 2-3 down at half time.

Why Dier over Toby for such an important game? Don’t tell me Jose’s fallen out with Toby too?

Maybe Mourinho is going for a 6-6 aggregate score over the 2 legs…😂. Their forwards are going to run us ragged… its going to be a long week
