    Will be very annoyed with Pochettino if he doesn't play our best 11 against Gent away. Can see us rest many regulars against Fulham in the FA Cup 2 days later. So, there is no reason why we should not play our strongest team against Gent away.

    Given our performances in the first two rounds of the FA Cup when we did rest almost the entire first team, I dont think we can rest a similar number against Fulham.

    Personally, the approach which I would take is saying that each first choice player plays in two of the three games (ie the two Gent games and Fulham game). That means that each has one game off and in each game we have 6-7 first choice players playing, supplemented by the likes of Winks, Sissoko, Wimmer etc. I'd hope that that would be good enough to get us through in both competitions and not have players burned out for the league games whic follow
