    I think we still win...

    We beat City without Kane last year.

    Fuck those boring Utd bastards.

    Aurier, Toby, Sanchez, Jan, Davies
    Winks, beast
    Alli
    Son
    Llorente

    Can't see us scoring tbh, we'll keep it, they will counter
    Narrow defeat, set piece or a pen, Aurier sliding in on Rashford

    If we play Llorente up top (which I think we will have to because Son can't provide a focal point), then we need to play Son and Alli in order to make runs in behind Llorente. Eriksen needs to play because he's our best passer of the ball, so that means our team looks like this:

    Lloris
    Alderweireld--Sanchez--Vertonghen
    Aurier--Dier/Winks--Alli--Davies
    Eriksen--Llorente--Son​

    All kidding aside- take Llorente out of this line-up & replace Dembele with Winks and Spurs might just have the side that could walk away from OT with, at the very least, a point.
    Here's the logic: if Kane was fit & starting, then Spurs would be forced into attacking ManU & that would set them up nicely for a quick count-attack goal or two, then shut down the shop (Mourinho's trademark game plan).
    Now, Spurs best player is unavailable tomorrow, and this gives ManU a physiological advantage & odds are good they will come out of the gate tomorrow with "all guns blazing". If Spurs are able to withstand the initial pressure, it could set them up nicely for a quick counter-attack goal of their own- face it, there's a lot of pace up front with Sonny & Dele, ect....,
    Poch could potentially turn the tables on Mourinho & beat him at his own game!!!

    Aurier Toby Davinson Jan Davies
    Dier Winks
    Eriksen Alli
    Son

    Based on Dembele not being fit enough to play for a full game at this moment

    Think I’d start tripper for this if Llorente is up front, and save aurier for Madrid .

    Midfield selection will be interesting. Is dembele fit and if is he still first choice ? Do we need a proper dm anymore? Will Dele continue in the deeper role? Lots of decisions!

    Lol. Wheels off the bus. We lost one game we didn’t even try that hard to win. IMO, we are better than united. They will not be looking forward to playing us. Even if we draw, and lose to RM, that’s hardly the wheels coming off.

    Even after almost 3 seasons of pretty much dominating teams, Spurs fans still over-react.

    True but we are perplexed that he doesn't seem to be able to move his feet

    Lloris
    Toby Sanchez Verts
    Dier
    Aurier Eriksen Alli Davies
    Llorente Son​

    Bench: Vorm Trippier Rose Dembele Winks Sissoko GKN

    If drawing later on, we can go on the attack and bring on Dembele, Winks and Sissoko.
