Fernando Llorente

Fernando Llorente might have expected to start the FA Cup clash against Swansea, given that we were without Harry Kane. The Spaniard moved to Tottenham from the Swans and even though he has not had the impact that many would have expected of him, Llorente could have been a threat against the relegation-threatened team.

However, Mauricio Pochettino decided to stick with Son Heung-min up front and we did actually win the tie 3-0, which put us into the semifinals of the competition.

That should have been that but things took a bit of a wild turn as the FA Cup Twitter handle decided to have a joke at Llorente’s expense.

This certainly was in bad taste and a lot of the Twitter users had a right old go at the FA Cup handle.

Llorente did come on as a substitute but the match was more or less won by that time. People might talk rubbish but we need his ability in front of goal in order to win the FA Cup and also end up with a top-four place come the end of the season.
