Tottenham Hotspur supporters are annoyed on Twitter at Mauricio Pochettino's comments about Christian Eriksen and the drama surrounding his future. 

For the second time in three Premier League matches, Eriksen was left out of Pochettino's starting XI, with his absence resulting in Spurs producing lacklustre displays. 

 

Over the weekend, they suffered a 1-0 defeat against Newcastle, and despite Eriksen's introduction in the second half, they still lost the encounter.

After the game, Pochettino admitted that he is unsure as to whether Eriksen will play for the North London club again, as reported by BBC Sport. 

It has left a number of Tottenham fans on social media fuming as they want the situation resolved with once and for all.

There are some putting the blame on Pochettino's shoulders because they feel he should come out and say how much Eriksen means to the club and that they want to keep him.

Added with that, there is another who feels that amid all this chaos off the field, that Pochettino could walk as pressure mounts on those associated with the club.

Things don't get easier for Pochettino because on Sunday, they will make the short trip to the Emirates Stadium to take on their bitter rivals Arsenal. But will Eriksen play?
