Tottenham Hotspur fans are furious with the club's tweet ahead of their clash with Manchester City - which they think makes them look 'small'.
Spurs' summer has been far from ideal with Harry Kane's future up in the air, in addition to their frantic search for a new manager.
Nuno Espirito Santo was eventually appointed and their first game of the season is against the reigning Premier League champions.
Prior to kick-off, Spurs' official Twitter account posted an image of their players walking out with the caption of: "Whatever happens, we'll give it absolutely everything. We're ready for battle."
Whatever happens, we'll give it absolutely everything.

While the intentions were pure, it hasn't gone down well with supporters.
Spurs reached the Champions League final in 2019 under Mauricio Pochettinho and regularly finished inside the top four.
However, last season saw them finish seventh and it means they'll be in the inaugural Europa Conference League.
That mixed in with a perceived lack of investment from chairman Daniel Levy has many thinking they've gone backwards.
Yeah Harry Kane is gone https://t.co/UTtjJEKpVW

Haha that's a pretty embarrassing tweet for a supposedly big club. Who tweets that before a game? Doesn't exactly scream confidence in the win.

Despite the nerves, Spurs have matched City in the first half and stopped Pep Guardiola's men finding a rhythm.
Summer recruits Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil are on the bench and youngster Oliver Skipp has started in midfield.
When it comes to City, £100 million man Jack Grealish has made the eleven and Ferran Torres is up front.
Who do you think will go on to win this game? Manchester City or Tottenham Hotspur?
