As has been pointed out Poch doesn't like to drop players immediately for new signings.
However with Dortmund on Wednesday I think he has the perfect excuse.
I would debut Sanchez against Everton - and then debut Aurier from the start against Dortmund.
In Dembele's absence, is this the best partnership? I wrote an article looking at this: https://tottenhamwords.wordpress.com/2016/09/12/does-the-eric-dier-victor-wanyama-pivot-work/
They haven't really gelled together yet, and obviously they don't offer as much going forward as other...

Walker Alderweireld Vertonghen Rose
Lamela Eriksen Chadli (Berahino)
I feel like we need the added dynamism of Rose, Alli and Lamela ahead of Davies, Dier and Dembele if we want to break down Stoke. Berahino in for Chadli if he signs and is ready.
I like the idea but I really think we should pick Eriksen, poor pre-season form yes but he'll mentally shift into a higher gear when it's proper competitive football.
