Poch needs to build on the team from yesterday but he probably wont like the last game after Belgrad.
I fear Aurier will play some part somewhere. Would like to see more of the Dier/Sanchez duo as they are probably both here next season and they should be able to deal with Sheffield.

So my wish:

------------------Gazza-----------------
-----Foyth---Dier----Sanchez---Davies--
---------Sissoko---Ndombele----------
----LoCelso-----Dele----------Son-----
------------------Kane-------------------

Subs:
Vorm, Alderweireld, Sessegnon, Winks, Lucas, Lamela, Parrott

If Lamela is not fit put Eriksen on the bench.
If Lamela is fit enough to be on the bench, he starts over Dele for me. Although Dele is playing better, he is no way near as influential as Lamela has been this season

Agreed though I do feel Alli is on the cusp of refinding his form.

Pochettinho has been very fair with the squad. The players owe him big time, they need to stand up.
except it’s having the opposite effect. The players are so comfortable knowing that they will all get their turn in this rotation policy so there’s no need to bust a gut to ensure you keep your place, they can just stroll knowing that they’ll probably get “rested” next week and then back in the week after. If the stat above about a changed team for 93 games in a row is true then that is utterly ridiculous.

I think rotation is fine, even preferable, when confidence is high and there’s a good vibe throughout the squad. But when you’re going through a long rocky patch, as we are, and confidence is fragile, then when you stumble across a good and effective formula - as we did with our midfield and attack particularly on Wednesday - I think you need to lock that in.

I feel sure Poch is going to make changes for tomorrow's game with Sheffield United. One of the most infuriating things about his tenure here is the number of changes he makes from one game to the next, even when we are (or were) winning regularly. It always drives me bonkers when we pass up the chance of creating continuity and the maintenance of form. I would never change a winning team, but then, I'm not the Spurs manager. Please God he keeps at least nine players in the team for tomorrow with the exception of Rose and Eriksen, but I fear the worst in the team selection. Our game tomorrow is I feel, going to be much tougher than many Spurs fans believe. Just look at their away record.

Eriksen has gone backwards big time.
Aurier wants out .
Alderwerild wants out and is not giving 100%.
Moura is not good enough his career cannot be supported by one game against Ajax and one game at old Trafford .
Rose is in and out with the fairies .
If these players were omitted from the first team squad myself for one would be happy.
I would be happier if Foyth / Parrot / Tanganga / LO Celso / Sessegnon would be playing in place of the what I call the non triers .
They come across as not caring and if what we are getting is their best then they are proving they are not good enough for spurs

We can't be rotating our team when we're sitting at the bottom half of the table... You don't see the top 4 doing it. Sheffield has allowed the joint lowest amount of goals this season alongside Leicester and ahead of Liverpool. We need to build off of a great performance and bring our weapons out. We're going to have a much busier period after the international break when we have 3 matches in one week. The gaffer needs to change his mentality... Build the players fitness by making them play! If they fatigue, sub them out! If we go up on Sheffield, sub players out and give them rest!

Thus said, same team:
Gaz
Foyth Sanchez Dier Rose
Sissoko Ndombele
Lo Celso Dele Son
Kane

Bench: Austin, Tanganga, Sessegnon, Skipp, Eriksen, Lucas, Parrott

Bit harsh on Moura think he has done more than two performances, didn’t he score 15 odd goals last season. Think he has suffered from being asked to play in some odd formations which hasn’t helped, think there is a quality player there if used well.

Will be amazed if Celso starts. And even Ndombele. Poch talked about it being a short turn around between games. Completely expecting Winks and Eriksen to come in. But I would like us to start with the same 11 with maybe Moura coming in for Dele and Celso central.

I have a bad feeling that Rose, Eriksen and Aurier will play.
