    I like your line-up. Let's see if Poch concurs.

    My spin on "our strongest XI" would be the strongest available, In other words we would not pick usual 1st teamers who were injured, off form or just plain knackered!

    I doubt Sanchez will play as he probably can't get back until late Wednesday night. Lot to ask even for a 21 year old.

    Lloris
    Trippier Toby Jan Davies
    Dier Winks
    Dele Eriksen Son
    Kane​

    Bench: Vorm, Aurier, KWP, Wanyama, Sissoko, Dembele, Llorente

    As others have noted, Sanchez could be be pushing it to get back from Colombia (or Columbia or Columbus if you prefer), and with Madrid on the horizon, might make sense to get him prepared for that match. Dele will certainly start and play 90 on the weekend. Good chance to keep momentum going with Winks - saving Dembele, if he is healthy, for Madrid. I have no idea where Son is - how much travel does he have to get back? Could see Sissoko here instead.

    Hope to hear an update on Rose - he's going to need a few Reserve matches to get up to speed, imo.

    Not sure Wanyama will be rushed back in. Sanchez arriving back late will recover to face Madrid. Trips for Bournemouth and the stronger defensive option in Aurier saved for Madrid.

    I'd keep with 3 at the back, we've always seemed to play better in that shape, but I'd be inclined to be a bit bolder in midfield.

    Let's move the ball quickly and have as much creative thrust as possible. About time we spanked someone at Wembley.

    Lloris

    Alderweireld
    Dier
    Vertonghen

    Trippier
    Winks
    Eriksen
    Davies

    Dele
    Son

    Kane

    I think we shouldn't get to bog down with 3 at the back. Yes in certain games 3 at the back will be the correct way or maybe within game management/tactics it way Dier is such a brilliant player. People should not forget we won a hell of a lot of games playing 4231.

    I like the idea of being flexible and Poch certainly has encouraged that.

    Lloris

    Aurier
    Alderweireld
    Vertonghen
    Davies

    Dier
    Winks

    Erisken
    Alli
    Son

    Kane

    Too soon for Foyth for me. Saturday is the EPL and we have to win at home. I'd revert to a back four and keep introducing Foyth in the cups and later in the EPL season against easy opposition.

    If reverting to back 4 means 4231, then I would do anything before that. I'd even rather put Kane in goal and Lloris as CB to avoid 4231. If it means 442 pairing Llorente and Kane up top, then I could be interested. But in reality, I doubt very much that Bournemouth is too early for Foyth. He could handle it.

    I won't play Sanchez given he might be available for training only on Friday.

    My XI :

    Lloris
    Aurier,Toby, Jan, Davies
    Dier, Winks,
    Sissoko, Eriksen, Dele
    Kane

    Bournemouth had 2 attacking players injured in international break - no Josh King or Ryan Fraser.
    So, hopefully lesser pressure on us & we get our 1st PL win against them

    That'll also mean they will sit back more if they have less attacking threat, which won't be good for us.

    Disagree. It is perfect for us, simply because Bournemouth don't have it in their nature to play that way. Swansea played it that way becuase they have changed in recent year & they have been coached that way.
    Have we seen a game where Eddie Howe's Bournemouth parked the bus ?

    Fair opinion to have. I don't think Foyth would have a shocker but I just think on balance it's a higher risk. Not that it validates my opinion but I reckon Poch will be minded the same way.

    Maybe it's higher risk, maybe not, I'm unsure. But you are right thinking about risk, because both choices comes down to what risk one is fine with taking, since they are different in nature. It's either deploying strong players in a defence formation that's inferior to our preferred formation (risky), or deploying an inexperienced player in our preferred formation (also risky). Facing one of the weakest PL teams when they are missing vital attacking players thought, I would have gone with Foyth.

    Lloris
    Aurier
    Dier
    Toby
    Verts
    Davies
    Winks
    Dembele
    Alli
    Eriksen
    Kane

    3 4 2 1 formation.

    Reverse the role Dier played last year and have him mainly as a CB but push him into midfield when we need to press or have plenty of ball which allows Winks to get a bit further forward.

    I'm pretty certain Sissoko will play against Bournemouth (and possibly against Madrid as well)

    I agree that Sanchez might not be the best option after his international duty. I still think Poch will play three at the back, and I think he'll use Dier there if Dembele is available. I am sure we'll see Aurier on the right and Davies on the left. Winks will probably start. Dele will start.

    As Japhet said:

    Lloris
    Aurier
    Dier
    Toby
    Verts
    Davies
    Winks
    Dembele
    Alli
    Eriksen
    Kane
