So lads, who do you want to see start vs Chelsea. Apparently Lucas is gonna be fit so here's how I'd like us to line up:

-----------------------------------Gazza-----------------------------------------
-Aurier--------------Aldeweireld----------Vertonghen----------------------Rose-
----------------------------Sissoko---------Dier-------------------------------------
-Lamela-----------------------------Winks---------------------------------Eriksen-
-------------------------------------Moura-----------------------------------------

We have to play counter-attack in this one. Chelsea will be so so up for this after we thrashed them and then somehow won 1-0 in the first leg of this tie.

If we are to win, Rose and Aurier need to start. If we put Davies and Trippier in, I have no doubt we'll lose. Aurier has been faultless recently and Rose has been one of our best players. We need them in this game.

What team do you wanna see?

p.s I MISS DEMBELE!!!!
Is Sissoko available?
HE'S ONE OF OUR OWN!!! WINKSY!!!!!

Fantastic last gasp winner. Felt terrible for Llorente after that, but he's only got himself to blame. Missed two sitters.

Trippier and Sanchez were woeful today. Can't understand why Foyth wasn't chosen. Terrible news about Dele. Honestly our injuries this season have been beyond belief. So unlucky, but look at the table. We've coped fantastically in my opinion.

Rose MOTM for me. We need him fit for these big games coming up. Him and Aurier need to be starting as our full-backs.

Onto Chelsea in the Semi Final. COYMFS!!!!
+2
this is woeful. just our luck that llorente has confidence crushed with an own goal. ERIKSEN and Dele need to step ip
Kane expected to be back in training early March.
Son comes back from Asia Cup mid February.

Our two primary targets should still be achievable:
Win the League Cup and finish in the top 4 of the league.

Whilst Son could be available just in time for the first Dortmund leg, it's going to be a big ask to progress. The FA Cup would be a lot of added games and would have to be the lowest priority.

All our defenders are fit. In midfield Eric Dier is getting close and he's desperately needed now. If Sissoko is out injured, then Winks and Skipp are going to need some help. That midfield area is the main worry. Up front Moura is fit again and will have to step up with Lamela and even Llorente to play a part with Alli and Eriksen. If Poch gets it right we'll be fine!

From All Action No Plot:

Spurs 0-1 Man Utd: Four Tottenham Observations
1. A Heartening Performance

Curses are naturally flowing pretty liberally around the white half of north London, but here at AANP Towers we’re actually sipping the early-evening double whisky with a generous dollop of equanimity.

The wound of defeat obviously cuts deep, and so on and so forth – but after the laboured 90 minutes against Chelsea, and a first half here in which there was a collective air of legs ploughing through quicksand, I was actually pleasantly surprised by the rip-roaring stab of things made by our heroes in the second half.

No doubt about it, every lilywhite out there this afternoon looked utterly drained – and have done for a few weeks now – and I’m pretty sure I saw several of them being scooped up off the turf and carried off at the denouement.
Yet despite that, we kept beavering, making enough presentable chances to win a couple of games and frankly appeared to have a few bursts more energy than our opponents who were supposedly freshly sunned and rested.

Moreover, I was secretly rather chuffed that we kept our heads and continued to probe in those closing stages, rather than blindly whacking the thing north and offering up prayers. Up against a deep United defence-and-midfield I had wondered in the first half how the devil we were supposed to break them down at all. As it happened we did so on around a dozen occasions in the second half alone.

2. Our Finishing. Too Close To The Keeper, Don’t You Think?

Bunting is being decked and champagne sprayed around the United keeper, and one understands the sentiment, for the chap wasn’t allowed to catch his breath before sticking out another limb and keeping the good ship Hotspur at bay.

And far be it for me to deny the fellow his fifteen minutes, but I can’t help thinking we made his job a heck of a lot easier by firing most of those shots within his wingspan.

I trust my public will forgive me if I don’t list and analyse each individual chance separately, as I’m not sure the abacus has been invented that can track that sort of thing, but certainly both Kane and Dele shot at him rather than the corners when clean through, and one or two of the other less straightforward opportunities might also have been more emphatically tucked away.

Just one of those things I suppose. On another day – and there have been several of them in the past month alone – we might have hit the corners and been four or five up. Such is the rummy nature of life.

3. Poch’s Tactical Switch

And while immersing ourselves in rather pointless crumbs of comfort, a begrudging nod in the vague direction of Our Glorious Leader. One of the few sticks with which the sunny chap is ever beaten is his perceived inability to roll up his sleeves midway through a game and do some first-rate tinkering.

Come half-time today however, and with the likeliest form of attack having thus far been The Hopeful Alderweireld Punt, Poch duly tinkered away like the best of them, and produced more of a 4-2-3-1, of sorts.

Now the prosecution might well make the point that his hand was rather forced by the injury to Sissoko pretty much bang on half-time, and a jolly compelling point it would be too. I’m nevertheless inclined to give Poch the benefit of the doubt however, for he might have stuck with the midfield diamond and watched on gloomily.

Instead, Sonny went left, Davies was kept firmly under lock and key within the back-four – where many a cynic might observe he is far better placed – Eriksen sat deeper, and the outlook pretty instantly became a heck of a lot sunnier.

4. Squad Depth (Lack Thereof)

As alluded to above, one can only really applaud the efforts of the chaps out on the pitch, who appeared pretty much to use up their final bubbles of oxygen and every last ounce of energy in hammering away at the United door.

The unhappy fact remains, however, that the slew of crunch fixtures shows neither sign of abating nor adopting any less crunch. On top of which, the cast members themselves are now, rather inevitably, beginning to drop like flies.

The hooking of Sonny for yet another international tournament seems rather heartless, as he’s only just got over the jet-lag from the previous one, but into every life some rain must fall I suppose.

The injuries are just a plain nuisance, and no less annoying for being so utterly predictable. Winks and Sissoko seem to have partnered each other for around a dozen games in a row, so the sight of muscles twanging away mid-game was greeted with as many philosophical shrugs as gloomy grimaces.

Kane also seemed to exit the stage in far worse health than he entered, having taken a royal clattering in the dying embers of the game, and with Dier still not fit, Wanyama now just a picture on a Missing Person’s poster, Moura apparently injured and Dembele eyeing up the exit door, the whole carefully constructed and delicately held-together structure does look set to come tumbling down at any point.

Oh that we were minded to shell out a few quid in the transfer market, what? The party line remains that no signings will be made if they cannot improve the starting eleven, which sounds suitably bland and professional; but the argument grows stronger by the day that simply recruiting a few extra bodies of precisely the same quality would be no bad thing, if it allows for one or two of our mob to catch their breath between games.

Frankly there seems to be more chance of the sun exploding, which means we can potentially look forward to Skipp and Winks behind a front two of Lamela and Llorente in weeks to come.

I hate how people will harp on about the 11 shots on target spurs had second half, mostly at ddg, but will ignore the 7 saves lloris made, we obviously could and should have scored more ourselves.
One of those days. Second half we carved them open so many times while they were defending a lead. Obviously they caught us on the counter a lot but that's always gonna be expected. Lloris should have got to Rashford's goal so he can't be praised.

Great write up though North.
Farewell Dembele

:(

Forever underrated in his prime, but since his amazing Juve games last year I have to say I barely saw him play at his best.

All the best in China brother Moose.
+1
Sad to see him go but it's the right time for him. He will be missed by all Spurs fans.
never seen a game where you have so many chances and lose. we should have had at least 6 2nd half.

De gea is heads and shoulders above any goalie in the world and sometimes you have to hold your hands up.

fantastic effort from the team but finishing needs serious work
Now also to be without Son and Kane...
Bit like the game at old Trafford, we were better first half and you guys played better second, but this time we got the win. Gg
+2
United held on and rode their luck in that 2nd half but we were far from clinical. We created enough chances to win three games! And again we drop points due to our full back set up. Wtf was that Trippier?? And Gazzaniga prob would have saved that one, Lloris...
+1
From Twitter:
The risk-reward tradeoff of the pass Trippier attempted on that giveaway was off the f*****g charts
+1
I wouldn't say we rode our luck, it's not like there was anything off the post, open-net sitters, etc. You had good chances and subpar finishing despite dominating the play in the second half, and we had good enough defending and great stops from our GK after setting up for success in the first half. To me that's like calling a world class finish luck.
I borrowed the phrase from Giggs and Sheringham....
And I'd disagree with them too haha
Tough loss, Spurs played well but couldn't beat De Gea.
lol looking at the line ups for West ham arsenal. West Ham has got the better team all over the pitch. 3 1 west ham
