    Looking at the replays it's hard to say he should have seen Kane - Kane himself most definitely would have been shooting in that position

    But it’s the higher percentage option

    Expect the importance

    I went to the CL final and it was roasting

    It showed in the pace of the game

    We just don't do heat, would have loved to have gone! even with the outcome!
    Just cant get over the performance but heat is a valid pointer

    My biggest worry is our defending. We have not replaced the tigerish tackling of Wanyama, Dembele and Dier. I watched Ndombele today, and while it is early days I don't think he is that sort of player. I feel that we need a "fabinho" type defensive midfielder.

    We have sissoko who does that
    We need smarter players but it’s gonna take time to get that on place

    Sissoko is not that player though. He isn't as tigerish as either Dembele or Wanyama. We are missing a natural ball winner in midfield.

    A point away from home in the CL ain't too bad, although we should've held on, obviously. The eternal complaints of a football fan, innit, we should've done this and should've done that. We drew 2-2. That's OK. Not a terrible match, but not great either. No need to despair. Winks was great. We move on. Leicester next.

    He was excellent in 17/18, last season was a write off.

    Dembele wasn’t that player when we signed him, it’s something we need to coach.

    Why? He's a decent player, who can cover a number of positions but has been unlucky with injuries/illness over the last year. It would be a real sign of the club growing if he becomes a successful squad option. I'd be very happy if he became our John O'Shea.

    Don’t remember Dembele winning much ball
    His strength was keeping it and driving with it
    And I think Wanyama did win loads of ball but lasted one season playing at our pace

    Not a chance he will go IMO
    The guy needs a break and some games

    Dembele was incredible at winning the ball and keeping it. Wanyama had injury problems before spurs, so it's not a surprise how it's gone for him. But there are plenty of ball winners who do fine at other teams, Fernandinho, Fabinho, Kante. The two top Teams that are missing them are us and Arsenal imho and we are as soft as brick in the middle.

    He needs some luck!
    I think he has big big problems getting into the side now!

    Drop Dier in alongside either Winks or Ndombele and we will look a different side, we’ll be so much more solid and everything will build from there.
