Tottenham fans rip into Pochettino's terrible substitution on Twitter after Arsenal draw

Spurs fans love their manager but were disappointed with his decision making against the Gunners.

It was two points dropped for Tottenham Hotspur against Arsenal on Saturday afternoon. As much as Tottenham's dominance - and their subsequent disappointment at a draw - showed how far they have come, that will mean little when beating their fierce rivals (and winning the Premier League title) is at stake.

The north London side started brilliantly against Arsenal, controlling play despite conceding the first goal. They then turned the scoreline around after Francis Coquelin's sending off, leading the Gunners 2-1 at White Hart Lane.

But Alexis Sanchez equalised for Arsenal and Tottenham failed to capitalise on Arsene Wenger's men being reduced to 10 men.

And, while Mauricio Pochettino's brilliant work to date in north London has been widely acknowledged by Tottenham's fans, there was significant blame laid at the Argentine's door for this one.

Indeed, Pochettino brought Ryan Mason on for Erik Lamela in the second half, when many supporters would have preferred Nacer Chadli or Heung-Min Son. Tottenham had the man advantage and control of play - but Mason's introduction was perceived as a negative move that ultimately stopped Spurs from taking all three points.

Here's how fans assessed the 'terrible' substitution on Twitter:
