    yes, he's taken a long time to come back from that serious illness before, seems like his body is still in recovery mode

    Lamela and his hips too

    Wonder if Sis can play protector in front of back four whilst cycling balls forward to Ndombele and Eriksen, we shall see. Can we keep the ball today ? I'm more hopeful with that midfield

    Worries me a bit as well. All depends on how well our midfield works. Slightly pessimistic coming from that Norwich game, I have to say, but let's see.

    True but we are on 30 points with 54 to play for. You have to imagine it'll take 70-75 points so we can't really afford to be throwing away too many stupid points.

    We need to get on a proper run of wins.

    Under Jose we have the third highest points in the division
    That’s with pub defending
    It’s progress

    Fans are clambering for us to sign a DM and RB. But Alli and Kane haven't had any rotation. Is CF cover actually the most likely signing we could make in Jan?

    Fair point but we've also played some pub teams (West Ham, Bournemouth, Burnley, Norwich). We played 3 decent sides, won 1 and lost 2.

    Much improvement to be made. I'm confident Jose can do it but we can't afford many more slip ups.

    So according to Jose, Sissoko can't play centre midfield and Sessegnon can't play left back yet both are playing in those positions today. Sometimes I just don't understand Mourinho

    Were those his exact words?

    I think context is king when talking about that.

    I'm a little concerned about the lack of pace

    Decent looking starting 11, but still not overly confident we can score enough goals to win to counteract the goals we will no doubt concede. Going for 2-2

    COYS!

    Seems like we want to get at them from the start with that lineup. Hope we get a better start than we've seen recently and avoid the individual errors.

    Not many decent sides in the league in reality
    And we beat teams that strangely have got better results against the teams that beat us... anyone can do anything

    About Sissoko:

    "But honestly, I don’t think he’s a midfield player in a core position, No 6 or a double 6. I don’t think Moussa is that. But he played in that position last match because sometimes the needs of team are more important than the player.

    He is playing Sissoko there because he doesn't feel he has any other options with Dier unavailable.

    Not sure about Eriksen as a deep midfielder. Another slow start for us as ever.

    Yes, and there is the context required to understand
