Fingers crossed. A tad too soon for alli and moreso kane? Possible on the bench for a boost in the last 15mins? Perhaps
Edited: Totally forgot about aurier. Hes inconsistent but his experience might be worthwhile.
Take your point about Rose but if Verts now needs to play LB with 3 days rest he really should have been subbed today. Notwithstanding that we were under the cosh 2nd half (If he had changed things earlier then perhaps we wouldn't have been)
Well according to their fans, they are worried about set pieces. I am confused though because although some there think they will win easy, they describe zaha as a brilliant potential signing. So maybe they have a lower standard than us for players. I'm thinking Llorente has to start, just in case theres a chance to be on the end of a free kick. Hopefully Kanes back and he can do 15-30 minutes, or no minutes depending on the score. No tripper, aurier instead, we cant afford 2 wing backs.
Tricky tie, i think provided poch doesnt get out-thought that we should win by a tight goal. Might get a bit nervy if they push hard for an away goal toward the end though.
Moura , and Son, with lamela as a late sub probably. Although i'd rather start lamela, and sub him with moura and shift formation to capitalise on their tiredness. I'm fairly sure we have fitter players, so if we can hold on to the ball, and make them chase it, we should get some reward late game.
I'm thinking they should attack the flanks , but if they attack our center then we should have an easier game.
