Flown out to Qatar for surgery and expected to be out 2-3 months (in addition to the time already spent on the sidelines).
In this case I'd rather have Sessegnon (even though it might not be his best position) as an alternative to Jan as LB. Rose is past it and also has no future with us.

Jose said 'no chance'.

Jan has been decent at LB.... What's the problem? ....Main issue I see is asking him to play 2 games a week there given the inevitable decline in his stamina. My guess is we'll just continue to ride out Rose being back-up until Ben returns then back to Ben (1) / Jan (2).

We need rid of 'Tabloid Danny' asap so we can bring in a new LB; ideally one good enough to relegate Ben back to being #2(*).

That was my gripe too. There's no way I can see him playing week in week out as a LB, so we also need an alternative. If Sessegnon isn't the one (I trust Mourinho's judgment), then yes, we're stuck with Rose there.

The problem is I just see him running his contract down, so we'd need to bring in a new LB without relying on the funds from selling him.

We're getting fuck all for Rose either way.... Just about wages and squad spots at this stage.

(Just wondering how long it takes before the Levy-haters chirp up with "Shoulda sold Rose years ago".... It feels inevitable if he's still here come August.)

You know I ball like Ndombele
Davies will add so much more balance to the defence. He can slot in to centre half when the right back gets forward, and can comfortably play at left back. Massive boost when he returns.

I think Davies fits into a back 3 really well, in fact I think the times he has played there he has had a blinder

Yeah I agree, I know we have been quite poor when we have tried a back 3 recently but a lot of it is the personnel.

I think Sanchez / Toby / Davies could work, with a new RB and sess on the left. Not for all games but just as a back up formation.
