No Dembele? Having a mare with that one Tank, he's been fucking collosal last two big games for us, and rested tonight and all....just no mate, no.

Lloris

Trippier
Sanchez
Vertonghen
Davies

Dier
Dembele

Eriksen
Dele
Son

Kane

Subs: Vorm, Aurier, Alderweireld, Rose, Wanyama, Lamela, Moura

Go with the side that has been fantastic last two games, they're playing super football and gelling with ease, why disrupt that.

Thought about Vic, but maybe just leave the big start for him away to Juve.

Sissoko and Llorente not even making the bench for me now.

Yep, Pinky's right - whatever we think the formation will be, Poch will almost certainly go with Dier and Dembele in midfield.

Lamela's given him a headache but I do think ultimately it'll be Son who lines up next to Eriksen and Alli.

I've no doubt it'll be same team as Liverpool game. Think Wanyama will start the Juve game, maybe Toby too. Hopefully now everyone is fit Llorente doesn't even get on bench.

I would go 3 at the back with Vic and Dembele in front
3 Cbs and Cm2 didn't work well at the Emirates. We got stretched far too easily.

Would stick 3 men in there with Dele at the tip. Get him to arrive in the box late, he won't be picked up by the likes of Xhaka.

Trying to predict Poch, I think it's between Wanyama (and so 3-4-2-1) and Son (and a 4-2-3-1) for the last spot.

That game was an outlier as half our team were carrying injuries. Last season at WHL 3 at the back destroyed them

Was a tough decision, mate.

I've set us up to restrict them playing to their strengths in and around the box, whilst allowing us scope to hit them hard on the counter.

Moose was a behemoth last game he played, but for this I'd want Lamela as an attacking fulcrum there.

Purely tactical.

Swapped him and Dembele in that position a few times before I settled on that.

Scum are jelly in midfield, so although moose is back on his game I want the ability to blitz them on the counter.

A few variations might do for this game tbh; will be interesting to see what poch does.

I think he would of yanked Wanyama off earlier and maybe left on Son for longer if he was leaning towards not starting Son.

Son will start for me, he's pivotal to how we attack, and we look a different side when he doesn't play, we need his directness and off the ball movement - and that Arsenal defence is begging to be got at it.

That team isn't going to happen, Davies deserves to keep his place, Alli dropped really? Depending on formation and fitness Toby and Wanyama may get squeezed in but will largely be the team we've been seeing over ManUtd/Liverpool with a little tinkering, nothing as extreme as you suggest, nor should it be as the players with the exception of Sanchez/Dier 1st half v Scouse have done great.
