    I agree with almost all of that. But I would be sceptical of moving Alli/Eriksen deeper as signing another attacking midfielder at their level will be very difficult and they both look better further forward.

    ---

    Very good to have Wanyama back and looking like his form is coming back with our injury problems. Was a very composed finish too.

    Agreed.

    The most likely way of it happening would be if Poch switched to 4:3:3 next season.

    I was totally amazed yesterday with two outstanding pieces of play, first the the pace, control and composure shown by Wanyama when he scored and then Sissokko's roulette turn, things I never thought I would see from either player.

    Beginning to look his old self in yesterdays game, lets hope so as he will be a important player for us. Still only 27 and if fit has several seasons in front of him.

    Wonder if he will start on Wednesday. Based on that performance he should and we could do with some good strong defensive cover where we'll be up against it for long periods of the game.

    I suppose it depends what his fitness is like after yesterdays game, if he is fit i would play him for sure.

    The man is a pure warrior. Some great tackles (and fouls) tonight.

    The game was so stressful I did not really get to analyze his game. I keep hoping he can come back the player he was.

    Yeah I thought Wanyama did OK but at the start of the game, he was the deep man in a diamond

    The 4 at the back were being stretched i.e. Rose tried to follow De Bruyne inside but there was Silva even wider, Rose had no chance. Likewise for Trippier, he would follow a runner inside and then realise Sterling was still out wide, behind him. So Wanyama had no chance really...

    Then at 2-2 Sissoko came back to help him so we had 2 in front of the defence... City stopped scoring... but then Sissoko went off.

    Then it was just a 4-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-11-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-11111 formation where everyone was everywhere and nowhere at the same time... mostly whilst Dele tried to nutmeg 7 players in midfield. What could go wrong?

    Given how little football he’s played, that performance was amazing. Rust in parts, but the confidence he has and the determination to run and run and run and run. Massive.

    It's a real tightrope relying on him as our only fit central midfielder, given his injury record.

    Thought he did okay with a couple of brilliant moments. Better than I expected though.

    Welcome back Big Vic.

    Hopefully Winks can get fit for the semi finals, him alongside Wanyama has a good look about it to me.

    His passing was a bit off but certainly put in a good shift defensively...



    Not quite as epic as Kane spitting on himself at Old Trafford but safety first :D



    And hopefully becomes Kenya’s 2nd CL winner in June...

    Did very well, few bad passes but looked promising and made some great tackles and blocks.

    I'm convinced the free kick he gave away for their 3rd wasn't a foul either, barely touched him.

    Starting to look like his old self for us, lets all hope he can keep it going as it looks like Sissoko could be out for a while.

    I thought he was a giant last night, he's hardly kicked a ball this year and he comes in to our biggest game of the season and runs and tackles his nuts off, he was on auto pilot for the last 10 mins and I think his brain was starting shutdown when he hit it out.

    I have to say he looked quite lost tonight. I'm surprised since he played fairly well recently, but maybe he's still not quite ready to be playing after returning to the training.
