a nice problem for Poch
Son who must be flying high right now and Moura
What a tough one to sort- I think Moura with Son on the bench.

He'll be knackered by the time Christmas arrives. Poor bloke! Plays in the World Cup, does pre-season, leads his teams U23's to Asian Games Gold and then has to play in the senior friendlies too.

Can't wait until someone compares his hours with an NHS employee and brings up his salary, that normally crops up when someone mentions professional footballers and tiredness.

Would be great to see Son & Lucas, alongside Kane in a front three, with Alli & Eriksen playing the Silva & De Bruyne roles, respectively. That would be frightening & we'd have a genuine counter-attacking threat, as well as having an excellent possession game.

Agree, although I'd like to see Winks with Eriksen while Dele is coughing up possession for fun at the moment.

My first thought when I saw the bench against Watford, was that we were screwed if we ran out of ideas. Bringing Sonny back adds that dynamic of having an extra attacker on the bench, whether that be him or Lucas. Personally, I'd like to see them both running at Liverpool's shakey smoke and mirrors back line!

And this why some owners don't get international football. The club's sign the players, train them, develop them, pay them and then the international sides get to do what they want with them during a tournament or international window. If a player picks up a serious injury then the club just has to deal with it. And the compensation is not really worth it.

We go into the Liverpool game without three key players and with a couple of others looking tired after a heavy cycle of international games. Not fair on us, but we like many other clubs just have to deal with it.
