    ah the return of proper football 3pm on a Saturday, shame it's an other team parking the bus for 95 minutes or media speak "brave rearguard action".

    This is just @scaramanga all over. Attempting to appeal to our collective compassion and empathy to give him a pass on this brickhouse OMT.

    I'll just be happy with something that resembles penetrative football.

    Has nobody raised the issue that we are likely to be going into a game against Zaha without a recognized RB?
    He must've been licking his lips watching big Dav there pre-break!!!

    Surely Poch won't risk that again? We just (!!!) about got away with it against Arsenal.

    Quite the headache for Pochettino. Though Aurier was on the bench against Arsenal so should be able to start two weeks later, can't expect match fitness, but can perhaps expect better than Sanchez did.

    Some big decisions with players coming back from internationals, injuries, players just returning from injuries. Pochettino has some history playing players that haven't been away in games like this one. Will be interesting to see who he picks for this one, half expecting some surprises in the starting eleven.

    Hasn't Zaha been used from the right so far this season?

    fudge me .. if we are afraid of Zaha, we might as well pack it up now ..

    Guy has 35 goals in 185 appearances for Palace, has hit double figure once in his career .. hardly fudging Messi, his record is closer to Lamela than even Kane, Son, Eriksen, Dele

    I'd give that a like, but it would be disrespectful to Lamela, who is 10 times the player.

    This is going to be the kiss of death, but I expect Zaha to keep running up the same blind alleys he usually does, whoever we've got at fullback. He makes dangerous-looking runs, but generally holds on to the ball too long and his finishing is average at best. Poor man's Ginola.

    More of a forward, I think. Seems he fancies himself a striker and Hodgson is entertaining him a bit. Expect him to move back tot he left in time.

    As it is, most likely he is something of a free roamer, so the whole team will need to keep an eye on him

    I'd like to see us line up like this:

    -----------------------Lloris-----------------------------

    Aurier----------Toby------------Jan----------------Rose

    ------------Winks-----------N'Dombele----------------

    ----Eriksen----------Dele---------------Son------------

    -----------------------Kane---------------------------------


    4-2-3-1. I'm not convinced at all by Kane having to share space up-front with anyone, and not convinced in general about him and Son in the same team. But get that front three behind him interchanging (with the emphasis on Dele as SS), we've got a bit of everything, pace, precision passing, strength, unpredictability, shooting prowess from anywhere in and around the box, late runs into the box. Solid back four with both full-backs assisting the attack and having enough about them to get back when Palace break.

    Lucas and Lamela in for anyone in that front 4 to spice things up if needed, Sissoko if we need to run at them. Most important element for me is to get that trio of Kane/Dele/Eriksen performing and being deadly again. I hasten to add that this is no reflection on Son, who I think as a standalone player is our biggest threat at present.
