I feel that he should start the next game. He needs game time to settle into the team now that Kane is out for a few weeks. He is strong, holds up play well and will shoot given the opportunity. Start Janssen Poch and if after 60 minutes you can sub for Son. I really think this guy deserves the chance and hope he proves me right.

We need goals to win, we need wins, he doesn't look dependable compared to all other options.
He'll get more time when we're more comfortable on games than we were Sunday.
Then hopefuuly he'll get confidence.

He did ok and played his part in the win.

He could/should have crossed rather than shot, for what seemed a better chance to score for Alli - but he's damned if he shoots and doesn't score and damned if he passes and gets an assist ("he should be scoring")

Saying that, his first touch isn't great, he gets outrun by centre backs and isn't very agile.

Hopefully, this season has been simply a baptism for him and he'll come back stronger next term.

He still hasn't really changed my view of him. A decent player, better at holding the ball up than being an out and out goal poacher who will become a good player soon. Definitely worth sticking with but sadly, he won't score a dozen goals before Kane comes back (hopefully, in time for the cup semi final).

I'll take half a dozen from him for the rest of the season.

To me it seems like Janssen isn´t getting enough support in the 3-4-2-1 system. Especially when Rose is out, as Davies isn´t going forward as often nor with the same qualitey or presence.

The preferred system of last season, 4-2-3-1, would probably suit VJ better, with more players around him at all times. The left and right backs would still contribute massively going forward - as they did last season.

As long as Rose is out, Vincent Janssen would probably look (and perform!) better with e.g. Eriksen, Dele and Son in the line just behind him, compared to just two of them.
