I guess many will pick the same side against Chelsea, not for me. Need to use the squad with the NLD to think about as well.
The three who started behind kane last night is our best blend imo and will start the NLD, despite Lamela playing really well this season.
I'd also keep Sissoko fresh...
Definitely a game for Sissoko, will need his power through the centre. Think Eriksen will be eased back in and isn't quite at his best yet. Lucas's work rate needed for this game as well.
They will surely come and sit deep.
Picking a side that is most likely to disrupt their shape. Good movement, pace and passing/crossing ability.
I know Poch will rotate the full backs but I'd be inclined to keep Rose in, his dynamism will create more space against this lot.
For the love of good, please can we not play into their hands with a high line.
I'm picking a team that will defend well and can win it back swiftly in deeper areas, much like tonight and can break with pace.
Well from Saturday though to the following Sunday, given our form and position in the league, must be the most anticipated week for years being a Spurs fan.
When you actually think about it, we're bang in a title race and the upcoming week reads like this:
Semi final against Chelsea on...
They're a tough physical side and have a very good home record.
Really like Son but don't think this is the game for him, could see him getting bullied by those defenders.
In anycase we should use the squad in a week where we have 3 games and I think Swansea away would be a better game for Son...
Can't help but feel this is a critical period off the back of two home games we simply had to win.
United have turned a corner for sure, and finally the penny has dropped to play Pogba in a three man midfield. Expect them to get stronger as the...
Subs: Vorm, Wimmer, Davies, Dier, Sissoko, NKD, Alli
If Dembele isn't fit, Alli to start.
Edit - going for Wanyama instead of Dier (even if fit to start) keep forgetting we've plenty of recovery time.
I'm sure this will split some opinion but I'm firmly in the camp that we should be protecting/resting our whole eleven, or practically all of them, to play Bournemouth. Even if we fielded our first eleven we are not going to recover from a 0-3 deficit to a team of this quality. We must ensure we...
Poch will rotate the full backs so there's no point in selecting Trippier and Davies, who I think would of been better suited for this game with Walker and Rose better suited for West Ham away. Think Son will come back in with Lamela on the bench as he missed the last few and his pressing will...
Some interesting selections for Poch ahead of this. I'm sure he'll swap the full backs because we all know that will happen but I'm sticking with Walker. And providing Son only picked up a slight knock and we took him off as a precaution, he definitely has earned a start after tonight.
Think it was Mpickard who was analysing the types of goals we've scored recently in last nights match thread and there hasn't been many goals where we've picked the lock or cultivated good moves that have really opened teams up that have led to goals. Most have been in space on the counter, long...
Who do you think Carragher/and whoever will go for come near the end of the season?
I know a lot can happen in the next few months but this is the way I think it will end up going:
I think that could be close, but...
Looks like Dembele could miss this one, could be out for a week or two but is being assessed tomorrow. Big miss IMO as Everton are a pretty powerful side, certainly a game I didn't want him to miss.
I'd bring Mason back in and play him alongside DIer.
The other big call is between Son and...
