Tottenham fans were feeling confident ahead of their cup clash with Manchester United, but they’re not happy that Toby Alderweireld has missed out.
This summer will be rather strange for Tottenham fans. On the one hand, their side is clearly going along the right path, but most fans simply cannot understand why the club isn’t doing more to keep Toby Alderweireld.
Davinson Sanchez enjoyed some fantastic form earlier this season, but the Colombian international hasn’t quite kept his standards up in recent months, and fans are nervous about playing Saturday’s cup clash without Alderweireld.
Manchester United travel to Wembley with both sides desperate to grab some silverware, and with an out-of-form Chelsea playing Southampton in the other semi-final, the winner of Saturday’s clash could well lift the trophy.
While many fans believe the Belgian centre half is half way out the door already, others are furious he isn’t playing more, and needless to say they’re nervous about his exclusion from the lineup.
Pochettino has elected for Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen in the heart of defence, with Michel Vorm replacing the out of form Hugo Lloris in goal.

Stunned that neither Lloris or Alderweireld are starting this game bearing in mind it’s our biggest game of the season, however will always support the team. 👊🏻
