Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight as £22m man Son Heung-min joins Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen in attack over struggling star Nacer Chadli.
Chadli was unable to affect last week’s game, and has frustrated fans thus far, and looks to have lost his place in the side.
Really glad to see Lamela over Chadli. Chadli's had a poor start to the season. Lamela has been great since his disastrous cameo vs Stoke.

Chadli dropped, deservedly too – needs a kick up the backside after not performing recently as well as we know he can.

Chadli dropped. Rightfully so. Done nothing since Stoke

The South Korean has captured the imagination of fans since his big money move from Bayer Leverkusen, scoring 3 goals in 3 games so far – including the winner against Crystal Palace last week.
Dele Alli + Heung Min Son, hipster dreams realised.

One fan will be particularly happy by today’s team news….
Would rather Corluka as part of a front line than Chadli

Club record signing Erik Lamela gets another chance alongside the new Number 7, and will take on a defence lacking the presence of Vincent Kompany, who has dropped to the bench.
A front three likely to float behind the struggling Harry Kane, the emergence of Son has lightened the load of the England striker, and has fans purring at the prospect of more interplay with Eriksen, who set up his winner last week.
Spurs Man City promises to be wonderfully chaotic. Big game for Eric Dier and Son Heung-min in particular.
