Dreading Saturday without Rose & Alderweireld. #thfc— Sean (@Tottingham_Sean) November 23, 2016Thought Alderweireld’s injury was ‘not a big issue’?? Out since 15 Oct. And no sign of return. No Rose & no Toby vs CFC?? Christ. 🙈🙈🙈 #THFC— SpursAli (@SpursAli) November 23, 2016I’m more bothered about the state of our defence for Saturday rather than going out last night! #THFC— John Hall ™ (@JohnHall1985) November 23, 2016I dread to think what Chelsea will do to us Saturday, really believe we could be on the end of a thumping #COYS— James Aust (@JamesAust22) November 23, 2016I’ve been saying that since the City game we’ve been poor… I fully expect Chelsea to destroy us Saturday if we don’t up our game #COYS— Martin Lee Grant (@Mar10LG) November 22, 2016Meanwhile, other Tottenham fans have been critical of Pochettino’s team selection in Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat at Monaco, accusing the manager of prioritising the Chelsea game over Champions League progression.Poch got it wrong in Dortmund last year, got it wrong again last night. Brace yourself for Chelsea away #THFC fans. It’s not gonna be pretty— CaryLad (@ATottenhamFan) November 23, 2016We let Chelsea get under our skin before they even played us. #disappointing #THFC— Joval Aubee (@JayAubee) November 23, 2016Poch resting players for Chelsea, complete idiot. Team selection was unforgivable – as was conceding 14secs after equalising #THFC #Spursy— Jonesy (@MJ_THFC) November 22, 2016What can Pochettino conjure up at the Bridge on Saturday evening. Down to pride, players must show that & passion, owe us one. #THFC #COYS— Alf Love (@alf_love47) November 23, 2016they need to smash chelsea to pieces to for this to be accepteable, not forgiven but acceptable. i doubt they will #THFC— Farj73 (@farj73) November 22, 2016 See also:Chelsea skipper Terry sidelined by new injury  Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!
