    -----------------------Sissoko------------------Dier--------------------Winks--------------------------

    Subs : Gazzaniga, Foyth, Trippier, Wanyama, Lamela, Moura, Llorente.

    2-0 win, Son with a early goal and Llorente off the bench with an 80th minute strike.

    Important not to concede which is why i've gone for a defensive line-up.
    Can't see Kane back yet to make the bench(get him back ready for chelscum away along with Alli).

    Not so sure about Aurier

    He worries me

    Really tough game. They have a lot of pace on the flanks. Need trippier on the bench. He’ll kill us for this one. Any clean sheet - even a 0-0 isn’t too bad. 1-0/2-0 fantastic results. Hoping Kane and dele can be back for the game in Germany!

    Lloris

    Aurier Alderweireld Sanchez Vertonghen Rose

    Sissoko Wiks

    Eriksen Son Lucas

    Trippier vs their pace though?

    Sancho and Guerreiro will have a field day

    Has to be Aurier. He usually plays really well in the CL.

    I disagree with Son up top on this one. He usually destroys Dortmund with pace from the side.

    C&P'd from the other thread.

    They aren't the best defensively but absolutely devastating in the attack.

    I imagine this is their likely their line-up:

    Burki
    Piszczek - Weigl - Diallo - Hakimi
    Witsel - Delaney
    Sancho - Gotze - Guerrero
    Alcacer
    I think they'll start with Alcacer up top - they tend to keep him on the bench and bring him on where he's proven to be most deadly but I feel they'll want a focal point against us with two wide men either side of Gotze. Reus missing is such a big plus for us.

    Won't be an easy game either way - that's a very good central midfield pairing right there and we'll need to be at the top of our game without Kane and Dele to match this lot.

    I'd go with:

    Lloris
    Aurier - Alderweireld - Vertonghen - Rose
    Sissoko - Winks - Eriksen
    Lucas - Llorente - Son
    And just go right at them with power and pace. Need Eriksen to be on top of his game for this one too. Wouldn't be surprised if we go 3 at the back though and push Aurier and Rose forward and leave Lucas on the bench.

    Lucas and Son will wreck them with pace up front.

    Would actually start Lamela for this one. Think his tenacity will be key.

    Trippier to Llorente with a floater to the back post. 1-0.

    Start Llorente twice in a row? I'm not so sure. Full week's break between this and Burnley though, so not like we'll kill him.

    Lamela, Dier, Wanyama, Alderweireld, and Aurier not starting today is a positive in regards to having some fresh legs. Dier probably a miss for Wednesday night (he's got a virus, hasn't he?) but the others should be fine.

    Off the back of this afternoon, I'm relieved to say the least that we'll have Aurier up against their attackers and not Trippier. I hope he does as well as he did against Dortmund last season (if my memory serves me right).

    I remember thinking he had a nice tidy performance that day. Thought he would definitely be overtaking Trippier in the pecking order in time but...

    Is could be 1-0 or 4-3 or 0-3. Really hard to see how this will play out given Dortmund’s recent form, injuries and our current squad. I think Poch will look to sit back and counter, so hopefully we see a nice repeat of the 3-1 from last years group stage (but no red card, please).

    Would prefer Llorente up front, his form is getting better and better while his chemistry with Son will also improve.

    Hopefully we don’t give away an away goal though, would be happier at 7-0 :ap:
