    I know what he means though. Toby set amazingly high standards last season and hasn't quite hit them this term.

    Hopefully his injury doesn't disrupt us like it did last October when it fucked us right up.

    Dier with Sanchez and Jan in the back three, and Winks and Dembele in CM. That should do, with Toby hopefully back to face the Arse in the NLD.

    As good as Toby is, I'd be more worried if we lost Vertonghen . In saying that lets hope he is back ASAP.

    I prefer Dier at CB so we will be fine as long as Dembele survives the next few weeks.

    At least the CL games are slightly less important now.

    If Moose doesn't hold up we can always drop Dele back and play Son in his AM spot, plenty of options.

    And that new bloke, Lamele I think his name is.

    Dier will slot in Toby's position, if anything this injury weakens us in midfield a bit, hopefully Dembele is fit over the next few weeks.

    We lost Toby on 25 minutes and went on to score three and look comfortable at the back against Real Madrid so I think we can let him have the time to recover fully.
    Rio Ferdinand said last night he is our best defender and we will miss him but I think he is a year behind, he will be a miss but we are not the same team we even a year ago.

    Love Toby and hope he recovers fast, but I actually think Vertonghen has been the better defender for us this season. I'd be more concerned if we had lost Jan.

    Pretty surprised at how many people think Toby is not quite at it, or not as good as last year.
    He is still astonishingly good. Yes Jan is in great form but to say we won't miss him is naive. Even on the back of last nights hour without him.
    He, Jan & Sanchez are a unit; they've gelled amazingly quickly & we would miss any of them.

    Can anyone explain why Sanchez plays in the middle when it’s him Toby jan.But when it’s dier he drops into middle.Surly Sanchez is quicker than dier,Maybe dier height or perceived as a better passer? Dier obviously have no issue in right as has played RB.

    He will be a miss of course but it isn't as bad as when he was out last year, it's not about him being not as good its about our defence being much better.

    He’s a big loss, but I don’t think he’s been quite as imperious as he was in his first season.

    Tough act to follow though, as he was basically faultless.

    I think its mainly because Jan and Toby are the stoppers and Sanchez the sweeper.
    Dier is less good in the one-on-one stopper role compared to Sanchez, and so moves into the sweeper role - plus Dier isnt that slow!
