Good luck against the rags, theyve been rather fortunate with some of the results they've gotten. Hope it's an exciting game!
+1
So have we tbh. I am not complaining though. Hoping we win 2-1 again. ;)
Lloris
Walker Fazio Vert Davies
Mason Stambouli
Lamela Eriksen Chadli
Kane

Would like to see this against United - I think Bentaleb is tiring a little and it would be tough to play less than 48 hours after Leiscter.
We didn't by any means play well yesterday but got to be happy with the three points. United came away from King Power Stadium with nothing (lost 3-5) while both Everton and Arsenal had to settle with draws. City scraped through with a 1-0 win.

Pochettino has a few decisions to make ahead of United's visit to WHL tomorrow. I'm guessing that Davies was rested and will be back on LB and I think he should have done the same with Walker. At CB I think we have to stick with Vert/Fazio. They're getting to know each other and I think there are improvements. I'm curious as to which pairing he'll chose in front of the back four. Most fans would have been baffled at the decision of taking off Stambouli and not Bentaleb to bring on Mason yesterday, as Bentaleb had one of his worst displays in a Spurs shirt. Chadli and Eriksen were both fairly anonymous but still get an assist and a good goal. Lamela works hard and constantly tries to push forward and create opportunities. With that attitude he deserves to keep starting. Kane keeps scoring, whether he plays well or not. I still find him underwhelming as a player but he's excused when he keeps putting the ball in the net. Soldado on the other hand just simply won't take the ball and go for goal. He only wants to flick it on, doesn't matter if the player he picks out is in a worse position than him. We simply cannot persist with a striker who is afraid of facing the goal and he's got to be moved on to make space for a new signing. Maybe Ade will be brought back for the United game..?
Paulinho didn't get many minutes but was calm and collected in possession and may have a role to play in the 2nd half vs United.
I think we posted at the exact same time! But anyway as I said I would expect(and want) Davies to be in the starting eleven.

And as mentioned earlier I would expect Fazio and Vertonghen to continue at CB.

The main issue is the pivot, not against United we need a bit of defensive steel so I wouldn't be surprised to see Bentaleb and Stambouli but I would prefer to have Mason as he adds a bit more dynamism going forward.

Ade might not be a bad bet to throw into the mix at this points, at least as a sub - he was excellent against United last season at OT.
I'd rather have Wes Morgan than fazio.....
Not to mention he would be 1/2 the price of fazio too!
He has so many faults in his game,every time I watch him he does something wrong,and I watched every game he's played,I know Poch is trying to give him a chance but I'd rather give Vlad a chance (even though he's also prone to mistake),I've lost patience with fazio,and when we have played city and Chelsea he's been run ragged,but now has Rooney,falcao,rvp and Mata running at him,it's worrying
I didn't think he was that bad. We need to give him time, I feel at times we're to quick to criticize new players in the team. Credit to Poch for giving him an extended run in the team - we need to have stability at the back in terms of selection. He needs time.
I agree with Doc, he's steadily improving while Chiriches on the other hand is a lose unit and will always make stuff-ups.
I think it's bad that Poch has given him an extended run,once again he's a ppyaer Poch didn't want,he wanted mustachio all summer but levy went for the cheap option and it shows,he can't turn,run,makes silly mistakes whenever the ball is near him,look at him losing the ball yesterday,then for tehyre goal lost his man,same with the ulloa chance.
I'm not usually quick to judge but he is just shocking,I want kaboul back for the United game and make him and bert our first choice
I really hope the reason Davis wasn't playing was just a case of resting for United! Our defence was woeful again. Any other day vertonghen would've gave a penalty away and been sent off! We deffs won't be able to sit on a 1 goal lead against United. Never thought I would say it but I would be happy to see Kaboul start the united game.

Good to see paulinho coming on and showing some class touches too
I would not have given a penalty for that Vertonghen challenge. Regarding Davies I do suspect that he was saved for United.
Vertonghen clearly got the ball, in fact, he had tackled it out of play before contact was even made.
I think you could make a case for a pen tbh. More worried about Fazio's lack of pace and Bentaleb's poor form right now. :/
We were sh*t second half
+1
We were garbage for the last 75 minutes.
+4
We did struggle but managed to win. Most teams have not gotten away from Leicester with three points. They've been quite good at home but terrible away.
Having said that the performance should still have been better but yes it's good that we can win while playing badly.
How did we win? Feel like Leicester deserved to win by scoreline of about 4-1 lol.

Feel like it was a really poor performance today, Vertonghen making some really silly challenges could've given up a penalty on another day. Overall, we were just outplayed by the side bottom of the League.

On the upside, I think Fazio has improved in his performance today compared to previous games, hopefully we can improve on the defensive end of the ball.

Will take the 3 points any day though. COYS! :)
+3
You guys tell me man, Liverpool didn't deserve to win either. We were absolutely horrid all over the pitch besides Sterling, but sometimes you just gotta grind out results. You guys were at least good for 30 minutes of the match, we were probably good for 2 minutes of the match.
Santa Claus saved you all lol :P Even QPR could have got something against us in the last 10min.
It's safe to say all 3 of us have looked pretty darn ropey at times this season.
How lucky were we today? Unbelievable. Dodged 2 solid penalty shouts, they hit the frame of the goal twice (once from almost point blank range), their keeper makes a ridiculous error that lets in the winner. We were totally dominated there.
+2
It doesn't matter. We win 2-1 whatever happens.
+1
2nd half was all them. They certainly looked far more Top 4 material than we did.

Fazio needs to be dropped. When the pace picks up he simply can't avoid making stupid errors. Dier is more than capable, so I don't know why Poch doesn't give him a chance.
+1
@FD: Actually, it does matter. Sure, I would take lucky wins over unlucky losses, but these performances are more of an indicator of how bad we are. If we don't learn from it, we will be ruing our bad 'luck' later on.
+2
Of course it matters doc
+1
I think you guys took my statement the wrong way, I was referring to the fact that almost all of our wins this season have been 2-1 :p
+1
Haha doc... I see now!
Haha! You're right, doc. On second reading now, it should have been obvious for us. :P
Phew! Lucky win. Lloris MOTM.
+1
Lloris has to be MOTM. Another amazing performance.
The amount of chances we're letting Leicester have is ridiculous. It takes them literally seconds to get in the box from their half.
