Some very interesting comments by Pochettino today about giving people a 2nd chance after they've made a mistake. Who knows what went on but maybe they’ve cleared the air. I guess they must have or he wouldn’t be involved. Pochettino today definitely made it sound like the door is open for him. But maybe they are trying to make him more sellable. But seems there is a glimmer for him. Ultimately if he leaves it’s gonna be to a smaller club. Maybe janssen has realised this is a once in a lifetime chance. As said after Sissoko anything is possible. Still think even if not scoring he can be effective in an Emile Heskey type way. Basically just being a nuisance and creating space for others.

This is what Calvert-Lewin is probably the best at doing in the Premier League. Probably only has a strike rate of about 1 in 5, but works his absolute socks off and is so important to the way they set up. He's almost undroppable for Everton.

"I think some people were wrong. Jesus [Perez, his assistant manager] showed me a tweet. He was injured and you [the media] said: “Why is he not involved?”. You jumped in a swimming pool with no water. But at that moment he was injured. Jesus shows me wrong things, things that are not true.

With the lack of options available, i'd start him against Ajax. He's more suited to our style of football than Llorente is.

Offers so much more then Fernando, I have no idea why Poch is prioritising Fernando over him in the League when Janssen is ineligible in the CL & Llorente is guaranteed to start in that competition

Mate, he missed as open goal from 6 yards. Although Llorente did nothing when he came on.

The truth on his performance was that it was not great and not awful. He created two chances through his work rate and positioning but didn't finish then off. Both activities are his job. Considering he was on for 17 minutes and how few minutes hes had in the last year, I think it was it more than acceptable performance but clearly not what what was required. Fernando runs hot and cold and disappears in certain games and Then hits a game winner in the next game. You can't ignore Nandos goals per minute ratio which is great. Some of VJs supporters have rose colored glasses But it seems that some of has detractors don't give credit where credit is due. I will trust Poch on this one but am hopeful that he comes good.

Are people really saying a couple of ok touches (of not much consequence) puts him ahead of Llorente who has scored important goals to get us to this semi??

I can see why some say that - Janssen is more mobile than Llorente and does 'pull' defenders into other areas which frees up space for the likes of Son and Lucas.

If we are to play Llorente, we need some good crosses and runners off of him - plenty.
