After sleeping through, I'm confident again for today. We still have Lloris, Verts, Aurier, Dier, Eriksen, Dele and Son. Manure injury list is handicapping them worse than us.

Huge match. COYS.

Good options with Son's pace and Llorente in the air. Hopefully Alli and Eriksen behind can play the right passes because so far, Llorente has hardly had any service.

I wonder how many pages we can fill before kick off with "Kane is out, it's a disaster, we're going to get battered, etc."? I'm going for 20.

Not going to watch this one. I'll record it and watch later; every time I watch us at Old Trafford, we don't win. Usually when I get live updates from the Spurs website we do alright so that's how I'll experience this match. You bastards owe me

Yes, Spurs prosperity depends on you. I`ll actually recommand that you don`t get live updates either. It`s no good for the results, you know.. (y) Thank you for your sacrifice.

Whilst i appreciate the role of a top flight referee is very demanding, IMO todays ref Johnathan Moss seems to get quite a few big decisions wrong, and or fails to take control of some games in the manner he should.

Thats not to say that these decisions will not fall in our favour, and by no means am i looking for excuses. But his appointment has somewhat added to my apprehension regarding this fixture.

I suppose time will tell if it is the man himself we are talking about come games end.

Personally I think we are going to batter them.

Mourinho has been playing tight in the hope of getting late goals, imo we will be out of sight by then.

Edit: 3-0 easy
