think the team needs freshening up, lot of the players have played a lot and also changing it up will mean players come in with a point to prove
Lloris
Aurier
Verts
Sanchez
Rose
Wanyama
Dembele
Lucas
Eriksen
Son
Kane

Suddenly this game now seems massive
Every game, from now on, is massive. We’re not sure of CL for next season yet. Chelsea can pounce on us anytime if they start to put their act together again. No point beating Bournemouth then losing the next two league games.

We also need to win all our games in the comp if we want to win the FAC.

No point dwelling on the Juve game. Poch must get the players focused on the remaining games (both comps).

I don't have many doubts in this team, last season Chelsea beat us in the cup semi and we bounced back and dug in and got a result as Palace, our mentality has been questioned since last night but it's top notch, we've proved that and no shame in not having the same ruthless mentality as Juve who are masters of mind games and know how.

For this match I would bring Serge in and if Dier and Son are carrying knocks then Lucas and Wanyama, other than that unchanged.

Please comment why you want to include Foyth and Lucas instead of i.e. Dier and Alli
Don’t you know? He compared himself to Jose fucking Mourinho the other day.

We just can’t understand his high powered, out of the box thinking.

Foyth has better range of passing than Dier and is more mobile and imo is a fantastic pivot we are yet to utilise.

He is an awesome DM waiting to be realised (lurking in the shadow of his burgeoning prowess as a CB).

Dier could also do with a breather.

Lucas needs proper PL minutes; we have to get him up to match speed. He offers us something no other player does and we need him in our armoury, primed and ready.

His ability to jink and charge through the middle, sucking players out of position, narrow, into him, will be priceless for us.

Anything else, just ask. (y)

I see what you're saying about Foyth. And agree that there's some potential there. Though I'm not completely sure that this is the game we'd want to test that potential. Would rather give him a chance in preseason this year to play there in a few friendlies... rather than throwing him into a full-blooded PL game away from home. Could do more harm than good.

That all said... i can see him being similar to Dier... in that he can potentially play a couple of positions. He clearly has the skill.

No sissoko obviously.

Hugo
Aurier Sanchez Vert Rose
Wanyama Dembele
Lucas Alli Eriksen
Kane
I like this team. And I really really hope Rose can step up his game we need him badly but the last few games he just hasn’t looked himself. I know catch 22 he needs games to get better but I just not sure we can afford the risk in any of our remaining games. At this point every game we have in PL and Cup is a must win!
