we are really having bad luck with injuries this season and it always seems to get worse for the big matches. Seem to remember having a make shift side out for the 2nd leg of the league cup vs Chelsea too

Got to agree, re bad luck with injuries. What I'm starting to wonder is whether it's coincidence that it seems to be the same players who are getting the injuries.

Winks in particular is starting to concern me greatly. He seems to get fit, come back into the team & prove how good/vital he is for us, gets injured, rinse & repeat.

Winks is class imo up there with De Jong my concern like with name sake is the amount of injuries there getting. Fully fit the sky no limit

Massive loss. It’s gonna be so difficult for us to keep the ball in midfield with out and transition from back to front without him.
Yeah, agree. Given that City's 4-3-3 isn't exactly physical, I wonder if Pochettino will play Eriksen and Dele in a 4-3-3 to give us that bit of class in midfield. I mean, that probably means Son and Lucas up top with Llorente, and it would be a massive risk, but personally, I'm not sure going defensively with Wanyama and Sissoko is necessarily the best option.

Some on GG earlier this week said they spoke to him and he said: "he was fit!"
Maybe better/wiser to use him on Saturday?
