Tottenham Hotspur striker Vincent Janssen returned from exile to take a place on the bench as Mauricio Pochettino’s side took on Manchester City on Saturday.
The Dutchman last played for the club in the Premier League in August of 2017, playing a single minute in a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.
This season, he has spent the campaign with the Under-23s, but even there he has played just twice, scoring once.
However, he was restored to the matchday squad for the clash with City, as Pochettino made a number of changes to his side.
Of course, Spurs triumphed on aggregate against City in the Champions League earlier this week, progressing into the semi-finals.
They were unable to repeat that on Saturday, however, as they lost 1-0.
And a number of fans, before the game, chose to focus on the surprise inclusion of the Dutchman.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
