Why doesn't Eriksen play central with Son on the left? Confused about the inclusion of TC.
Don't at all understand why Poch likes the Eriksen - Alli - Lamela AM3. The sacrifice of balance there is not worth Alli's inclusion. Would much prefer Son - Eriksen - Lamela.

I'm happy with Carroll for this one. Everton's weakness is a slow and lethargic midfield, and I like Carroll against it. If Dier can contain Barkley, I'm not worried about Carroll at all.

Will be curious to see where Carroll and Alli line up. I thought Carroll was actually decent when he played deeper.

To be fair I thought we looked worse when Carroll went off against Watford. I like him, very tidy and technical etc...I just worry a physical scrap at a hostile Goodison Park isn;t the best idea but Poch has done more than enough to earn our trust. COYS.

Son would have been full of confidence and raring to go after that last minute winner, weird decision. We also need his pace in these weather conditions which suit counter attacks.

Two strong teams. Should be a good match with Kane & Lukaku on the pitch the defenders are gonna be busy!

I feel like Bentaleb must have done something wrong not to be starting.

Bentaleb or Mason should be in starting XI. I hope I will be wrong but Carroll is not good enough for away game against Everton
You're absolutely right. People here will downvote us for saying it but facts are facts. He is a massive downgrade on Dembele at a place like Goodison Park, if Dier doesn't get some form back we are going to be overrun all afternoon.

Good to see Lennon starting for them. Hope our fans applaud him as he was a good player for us over a number of years.

This team is certainly good enough to get a result from this game.

I'm confident and think we will.

I thought Mason was fit?

What has he done right to get a starting spot? He got injured, our team marched on therefore he is going to have to work bloody hard to get back in to a team full of confidence and spirit.

Poch knows the players better than anyone here. He know who is training best, who works well together, etc.

Given the squad depth - its more likely that Carroll has shown something, than Bentaleb has done anything wrong.

Oh as if that matters. We were also beating Newcastle until Carroll was taken off, but that didn't stop our "supporters" from blaming him for the defeat.

Honestly, some of our "supporters" are an embarrassment.

That is the concern. Anyway, let's see how we go. If it isn't working hopefully poch will rectify it early on.

Cannot fathom the choice in Carroll, it's frustrating me beyond all belief.

Seems more because he doesn't trust Nabil than he rates Tom.

Midfield seems really lightweight
