    Centre backs don't press, so don't tire as much.
    Dier, Dembele and Rose were used sparingly.
    And Alli only played at 70% the whole tournament.

    Kane just seemed more tired at the end, and we have less cover for him

    I would be very happy if you are right. I’d also be very happy with Son playing to rest Kane, I think we looked superb last season with the fluid front 4 in Kane’s absence, no need to get Llorente in there.

    Pretty sure Kane will start. Probably Eriksen too.

    Lloris
    Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies
    Dier, Eriksen
    Son, Dele, Lucas
    Kane

    We will have to play Eriksen deep a lot this season due to the serious fitness concerns surrounding Wanyama, Winks, Dembele and our remarkable inability to sign either Jorginho, Kovacic or Ndombele.

    Lots of fitness concerns going into tomorrow in general and it's good news that Sissoko is possibly out, as I fear Poch would start him if fit. It's a shame his injury is not more serious i.e. out for a few months (hoping he is injured for the season is not realistic!) but fingers crossed he is out tmrw or he'll start the game, which would be a huge blow.

    It's a shame, we should have been signing players to give us a realistic tilt at the title but instead we have a massive task on our hands simply qualifying for the CL again.

    Why Aurier over Trippier?

    Trippier is the best RB in the world on current form

    I believe so, off to the games after this game (or the next one?)

    Personally I think we need to try and pick as few of the '9' as possible.

    Yeah, just don't let him see the calendar.

    I'm not sure we've seen the real Kane since he got injured.

    I think we will go three at the back. Minimise effect of lack of depth at CM.

    Fixtures:

    11/08 - Newcastle A
    18/08 - Fulham H (+7 days)
    27/08 - Man U A (+9 days)
    02/09 - Watford A (+6)
    15/09 - Liverpool H (+13)
    22/09 - Brighton A (+7)
    29/09 - Huddersfield A (+7)

    Is this really such an intense run we need to worry about the lads who didnt get a massive break?

    I think it’s just this game we need to worry about fitness as most of the World Cup lot have only had 5 days pre season training. I’d expect a full side for Fulham at home, injuries permitting.

    New ground will be a problem
    Playing a wembley will be a probably
    Not having a big enough ground to compete is a problem

    In between Watford and Liverpool you have the international break so that will mean two more games, plus matchday 1 of the CL after the Liverpool game and match day 2 after Huddersfield. It's should be ok though, adrenalin will see them through its later on in the season when the lack of a proper break might have an impact

    They have only had a couple of weeks off, period.

    If Kane had 2 weeks off with a niggle, then 5 days training - would be worried about bringing him back in?


    Internationals can always be arranged so the players arent over stretched.

    I did wonder if there might be cup games in there though, couldnt find it off hand (and was lazy) - even so I still dont think its that much to ask of them.
