    Really not confident of Llorente putting in a shift and his imobility hurts our style too much. I'd leave him on the bench and bring him on late if needed.

    I'm sticking with a back 3 for this one and an unorthodox front 3 knowing they will get supporting runs from Winks, Rose and Aurier.

    ---------------Lloris----------------
    ----Toby ---David----Verts----
    -Aurier--Dier--Winks--Rose-
    --------------Eriksen--------------
    -------Lamela----Moura--------

    Subs: Gazza, KWP, Tripps, Davies, Skipp, Sterling, Llorente

    Not much creativity off the bench but (I can't believe I'm saying it), we only need a draw :)

    No worries, deano.

    We'll have you smothered as you sleep to ensure Spurs advance.

    If you'd be so kind as to forward your address details to the GG Spurs Ninja Enforcement department, we'll see to it that you're humanely disposed of.

    It will be an epic draw. We will frustrate the brick out off them. And go through.

    Is Moura definitely fit then? Would be surprised if he starts after about 3 weeks out.

    I'd definitely give Llorente a start. He wasn't far off against Fulham. He can only get better. And N'Koudou has to be on the bench after that last performance.

    I’m not sure they will start like men possessed. They are a bunch of self-centred clams who get through a manager every 18 months or so on average, so they are as likely to down tools as anything else. Here’s hoping, as it’s probably our best chance.

    Heart says that we pull a performance and a win out of the fire, head says we lose - probably as the result of a dodgy late VAR call.

    Llorente must start. He will never in the remainder of his career play as badly as he did on Sunday. Fact!
    Presumed consumed by a burning desire to atone. Unleash him!
    And btw, Winks/Dier midfield fulcrum mandatory.

    If Moura's not available/fit then his hand is forced to a back 3, unless he plays Sterling. As above though, I think either formation is equally likely however given a back 4 worked in teh first leg, I'd stick to it on Thurs

    It worked in that we won, but we didn’t play well, or anything like it. Maybe playing 3 at the back would have meant we played even worse and ultimately lost, but I wouldn’t hold the performance in the first leg up as some sort of template on how to play personally.

    At least Higuain can't play now. Think deadline was 12.

    would have preferred if he did. Hes had no training with them, and a Giroud/Hazard partnership will be far more dangerous....

    Sarri might just as likely play Hazard in the false nine. He seems quite stubborn.

    I don't expect anything extravagant in terms of team selection against Chelsea but I wondered if for the Palace game we might see more that 2 full backs on the pitch considering we are well stocked in that area at the moment.

    There's no reason we couldn't line up with a 4411 with Serge and Davies as legit full backs and Trips and Rose further up (KWP also). It would give a chance to rest Winks or an AM (Eriksen) for a game before the next league game.

    I emphasise I wouldn't risk this for tomorrow but the 4 games in 10 days is really gonna push the remaining players so might be an idea for the Palace game.

    Moura and Sissoko both back in the squad - We got this COYS

    Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko are back in the frame for our Carabao Cup semi-final, second leg at Chelsea on Thursday night (7.45pm).

    Both players have returned to training. Lucas, eight goals this season, has missed three matches after picking up a knee injury in the FA Cup win at Tranmere on 4 January. Moussa, in fine form this season, has recovered from a groin injury sustained against Manchester United on 13 January.

    The good news continues with Victor Wanyama (knee) also back in training.

    Eric Dier also returned to action at Fulham on Sunday after five weeks out - timely boosts for Mauricio Pochettino having lost Harry Kane (ankle), Dele Alli (hamstring) and Heung-Min Son (international duty). Dele and Harry are now in the initial stages of rehabilitation.

    Speaking after training on Wednesday, Mauricio told us: “I think it’s good news that Moussa and Lucas are going to be in contention and Victor has started to join the group. The manager and coaches always want their players to be available.”
