  1. I don’t think AVB will go with a 442 and change the system. My team prediction is Friedel, Naughton, Chiriches, Kaboul (if fit), Fryers, Sandro, Paulinho, Lamela, Holtby, Kane, Defoe in a 4-2-3-1 formation as usual

  2. Friedel

    Walker Daws Chiriches Naughton

    Sandro Dembele

    Townsend Holbty Siggy

    Defoe

    Subs: Lloris, Verts, Fryers, Paulinho, Eriksen, Lamela, Kane

  3. I doubt walker will play and the same goes for Defoe and maybe siggy should get a rest( who replaces him I don’t know)

    But please start Andros so lamela lines up against chelsea

  4. Agree can’t see him using 442 with the group f players at his disposal and the way they have been playin! 4231

    Fridel

    Naughton

    Chiriches

    Kaboul

    Fryers

    Sandro

    Paulinho

    Lamela

    Holtby

    Chadli

    Defoe

  5. Friedel
    Naughton Kaboul Chiriches Fryers/Vertonghen
    Lamela Sandro Holtby Sigurddson
    Defoe Soldado

    Have to see if we can use Defoe and Soldado in a 4-4-2 at some point.. Could be the answer to lack of goals! ! !

  6. Since AVB has stated he will risk as few as possible players that played on sunday the tactical choices should be obvious; here's what I think it will look like:

    Friedel,
    Walker, Kaboul, Chiriches, Fryers,
    Sandro, Dembélé,
    Lamela, Holtby, Chadli
    Defoe

    This is of course assuming that Kaboul, Chadli and Defoe are fit.

  7. Could he put on a few of the kids from the development squad? If defoes injured Kane should start up top and Coulthirst or Coulibaly should defiantly make the bench
    ,

  8. Was wondering if we still have jordon archer, or have we sent him on loan?

    Archer

    Naughton, vlad, kaboul, fryers

    Sandro, dembele

    Lamela, holtby, chadli (or siggy if nass is injured still)

    Defoe

  9. I would play this field:
    FRIEDEL
    NAUGHTON. CHIRICHES. KABOUL FRYERS
    SANDRO. DEMBELE
    LAMELA. SIGURDSSON
    HOLTBY
    DEFOE

    Let HOLTBY and DEFOE have some fun with deep balls thrue the defence lines.

    • Yep. Something like that. We need. Holtby's enthusiasm to win a starting place and freshness. Lamela should be fresh. Siggy played just 70 mins, so he could do at least 45 mins here. We are quite light in central midfield…so someone has to play again…perhaps a half each for Dembele and Paulinho. Defoe/Friedel to stay sharp. Debut for CHIRICHES. I would probably rest Naughton, as I have seen him suffer from cramp multiple times…
