Tottenham fans on Twitter have been left gutted as their club tweeted an early piece of team news ahead of tomorrow evening’s Champions League clash with Barcelona. Paulo Gazzaniga will be dropping to the bench as Hugo Lloris returns to first-team action at Wembley, and the supporters are gutted to see their Argentine shot-stopper dropping out.

Hugo Lloris is Tottenham’s undisputed number one and club captain. The Frenchman also captained his country to win the World Cup over the summer so there really is no doubting his abilities between the sticks. The fans aren’t annoyed to see Lloris coming in, they’re more annoyed to see Gazzaniga going out as the Argentine has done fantastically well since he came into the side and doesn’t merit being dropped.
Gazzaniga played exceptionally well against Brighton during the 2-1 win, winning the club’s man of the match award, before he then became the penalty shootout hero against Watford last Wednesday. Following that, he then kept his first clean sheet of the season on Saturday against Huddersfield and he’ll be as aggrieved as the fans are that he’s going to be dropped when Barcelona come knocking at Wembley in the Champions League.

Good to see he has to earn his place back when the guy who’s been deputising has done nothing wrong…

The Lilywhites will be keen to see Lloris do well tomorrow, but will also hope that Gazzaniga can get another chance this season after impressing in his three games so far.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
