Tottenham fans react to Juan Foyth’s costly mistake in the north London derby

One of the biggest stories of the north London derby happened before a ball was even kicked, after Mauricio Pochettino opted to leave out Toby Alderweireld in favour of Juan Foyth.

The decision proved to be a costly one, as the young Argentine was caught in possession with the scores at 2-2, and had to watch on in horror as Alexandre Lacazette took advantage and scored the Gunners third – a goal which appeared to take the game away from Spurs.

Given Alderweireld’s reputation as one of the best defenders in the world, it was extremely surprising for the 20-year-old to be named alongside Jan Vertonghen instead of the Belgian.

Pochettino has a lot of faith in his fellow countryman, as shown by his decision to throw him in at the deep end, but it was one that did not pay off, and Spurs fans are not happy.
