At fucking last!! Maybe Poch isn't trying to get himself sacked after all!

Happy with that team. That's probably a bit of an understatement actually since my eyebrows almost shot off the top of my head when I saw the lineup.

Dier still worries me at CB as always got a mistake in and woefully slow, but he’s hard as nails and maybe that’s what we need today

We won't get a better Toby replacement, especially if we want to retain the ping up to Dele running in behind that we're known for. I'm hoping he's matured and realised CB is his opportunity to get his career back on track.
Dier definitely has all the natural ability to become a top centre back - think we could see Dier, Foyth and Sanchez (plus a left sided Toby/Jan replacement next season) as our main centre backs to choose from going forward.

I think we need a poll to see if people are happy with the line up. That way they can't slate him if we don't get the result we want

Had a feeling that Lo Celso would start but didn't think Dier would, the full backs don't bother me that much regardless - Sheff Utd are gonna bank up so we're gonna need some pace and drive to get behind them, not sure Foyth and Davies offer that.

Plenty of minutes off the bench for Sessegnon would be nice.

The team looks good but at this point I’d rather see Skipp on the bench not Eriksen

Watch Eriksen come on and score the winner now 🙈

This is the Eric we need right now. Delighted to have him back in the starting XI

Maybe there's no penny dropping.

Maybe it's just that Pochettino reckons Ndombele and Lo Celso are ready to play their full part.
I agree DM. They clearly haven't been ready to start. If they had, I think that we may well have started the season a bit better.

Dier has scarcely played in over a year. I doubt he’s in the mood to argue about which position he plays, so long as he’s in the starting eleven.

I’m shocked that he’s playing an unchanged side (Rose excepted)
