Thing is Llorente would be perplexed if he didn't start with Kane missing, that's why we bought him.

If Dembele is fit enough I'd bring him into the team though.

A few tough choices. Perhaps Llorente starts against Madrid.

We can beat United without Harry. They're not exactly scary good, albeit improved from last season - which isn't saying much.

Two kicks in the bollocks in a week :( really fancied us to beat them, now I’d be very happy with a draw. Llorente up front for me.
It's a worry that we might have reached a bit of a 'peak' with the Madrid and Liverpool games. After the poor second half against West Ham, the Kane injury and now having to play away at Man Utd before Real Madrid it is a potentially ' wheels off the bus' moment so lets hope we can stop that happening - a couple of draws would be pretty acceptable in my book .

Was much more nervous before the Liverpool game.. even though Kane is out i'm weirdly confident we'll get a result.

Look peeps, its Man U ffs. Where's the problem lol?
We're playing great.
They're playing shite.
We are not a 1 man team as proven last season when we went 9 games unbeaten without Kane (TS said so... I think. I'm not checking lol. We won 5 of those as well).
They've been shit all season if you actually watched them play and who they were playing rather than just going by the result. Only played 2 teams who finished in top half from last season, Stoke and Liverpool and dropped 4 points in those games.
Just lost to Huddersfield, were shit lucky against a crap Benfica side and those thumpings against shite earlier in the season don't tell the full story either.
They don't play as a team and if we play the counter game we'll get at least a draw because I can't see Maureen doing anything other than parking the bus.
Just dont play a high line so they can play hoof ball, give away stupid freekicks around the box or any excuse for a dive in the box and we'll win (edit. And Lloris, no throwing the ball out to someone in or around goal area who is blatantly marked up with nowhere to fkin go).
We are a far better team than them and Maureen knows it.
Oh and we mustn't get dragged into a fkin brawl either because this shitbag is going to do everything in his power to stop this game being about football.
It's ours to lose in my opinion even without Kane.
How far we've come! Away to Man U and missing our main goal scorer, they've the chosen one in charge, spent ridiculous amounts of money building this so called 'team', and I STILL think that oily heap of shit will park the bus lol.
Marvellous.

I'd like to see Llorente start as for one he has got goals in him even if he's yet to score but not only that if he has Eriksen, Alli and Son around him I think he could do a good job in bringing them all into play.

They're strong/physical and very aggressive. That will be the main battle tomorrow.

Flank wars is the other.

I don't care about Llorente's feelings tbh, we need Son up front.

Well there's certainly a valid argument for starting him, and it's why we bought him - cover and sharing workload with Kane.

I would like to see him.play with a bit more umph and aggression.

That said, I think I'd play Dembele tomorrow and Son up top with Dele supporting.

But Llorente will get better, guy didnt have a preseason. I'd be surprised if Poch didn't start him after taking him off the other night when chasing the game.

In this game? Nah.

Not for me.
