like that team a lot! attacking as fuck though i suppose why not go for it home to bottom of the league.
I’d love to suggest it was based on a theory of deep defending, lure the opposition into us, get the ball wide, counter and drag the opposition around but reality is I’ve just tried to put all our fastest footballers into the same team.

Assuming no one is back from injury, I’d go with:
Gazza
Aurier Davinson Toby Tanganga
Winks Lo Celso
Lamela Dele Lucas
Son

Tempted to throw Gedson in from the start and see how he does but I’d personally like to see Winks and Lo Celso in the pivot again and Lamela’s profile is more suited to the right despite Gedson playing there at times for Benfica.

Put Tanganga up front. Hes already had better games at CB and RB than the regulars there. Let's see if he can do the same up top.

IMO, It's time to see what Sess, Skipp and Parrott can do.

Gazza
Aurier Sanchez ---Toby Sessegnon
Fernandes -- Skipp --Lo Celso
Lamela ------- Parrott ------- Son
Subs: Vorm, Tanganga, Dier, Winks, Eriksen, Dele, Lucas

Given the same (assumed) availability as against Watford

Gazzaniga
Tanganga - Sanchez - Alderweireld - Sessegnon
Lo Celso - Winks
Moura - Alli - Son
Parrott

Play a bloody central striker who has been trained as a striker.

When in possession, put pressure and responsibility on Alli to play close to Parrott and making it an effective partnership up there. Play pacey guys who can take on their markers in the wider spots, and let Lo Celso and Winks pull the strings.

Out of possession, Moura-Alli-Son work hard to get the shape back and not leave the midfield two too isolated. Tangaga and Sess can go toe-to-toe with their fullbacks. Norwich tend to play through the middle a lot anyway.

Honestly, if we don't stir ourselves and get serious about not ambling through matches afraid of our own shadow, and beat Norwich at home, we have to wonder how low can we go this season.

Expect us to dominate possession so no room for Moura. Sanchez and Tanganga plenty of pace to deal with Norwich on break.

Tanguy & Tanga in the middle of the park....just to see if the two names appear as funny side by side on a tv screen as they do in my head.

don't care about the rest, they're all meh

also, I'd like to see dilly dally given a chance to play as the false number 9 cos I don't think his flicks and tricks are contributing to anything in the middle of the park.

I like this, gives us some width, and Moura and son will not get in each others way

FIFA tactics. Not a bad way to go actually.
