Tottenham Hotspur: Many fans were furious with Mauricio Pochettino’s decision

With Tottenham Hotspur having gone three consecutive Premier League games without a win, as per Transfermarkt, there was a lot of attention being placed on who Mauricio Pochettino would choose to start against Everton.

There was one specific decision that many of the club’s fans took issue with when the selection came, as Christian Eriksen started ahead of Giovani Lo Celso:

Prior to the game at Goodison Park, Lo Celso had only played a mere 57 minutes since joining the club on loan from Real Betis, as per WhoScored.

With many fans having grown frustrated with Christian Eriksen, they were hoping he would be replaced by the Argentinian, especially after he had been called up to his national team.

Will this be Mauricio Pochettino's last season at Tottenham?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, the 23-year-old eventually had to wait until the 73rd minute to come on in what ended in a 1-1 draw.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the decision, including posts from frustrated Spurs fans, can be seen below:
