Son Heung-min declared he and his team-mates ready for Juventus even though he recognises his match-winning performance against Huddersfield does not guarantee he will start.

I trust Poch knows what he is doing, but there would be raised eyebrows if Son didn’t start vs Juventus.

Having said that, having Son coming on from the bench is a great option too, so I wouldn’t be too critical either way.

But the kid is on fire, if he is fit he should start tbh.

Yeah, i was sure he was planning on playing him when i saw him subbed off against Huddersfield. Son was on a hat trick and normally you'd leave him on as i don't think he's ever had one in a premier league match.

But he didnt start the first leg and Lamela did. Against Huddersfield Lamela was rested so it could go either way. Both good players but Son deserves it more for me.

With the result as it stands we will definitely start sitting deep and hitting them on the counter. Let them open up - they need to, we don't. Son starts for that tactic all year long.

I am pretty sure he will start. He did seem to have a few slightly off games but he has played himself back to his best form. Son comes out of the blocks quicker than any of our attacking players and will I am sure make sure we start on the front foot on Wednesday.
