    Get involved!

Finishing in the top 4 is still by far our most likely route of getting back into the Champions League next season.

Moura bound to start I feel and then just a matter of who recovers but no messing and no letting up.

Rest one of the central defenders, play Davies but thereafter lets get this game won quickly.
 
Question is whether Poch starts Llorente so as to rest some of the players before Wednesday's 2nd leg and following weekend's ManCity PL game as Kane probably out for all three and maybe Dele rested for Huddersfield ? If so leaves Llorente, Moura, Son and Eriksen as our front 4 assuming Lamela remains injured.

Thursday's team news could be interesting.
 
If Aurier, Dier and Lamela are all still missing.

------------------------------------------------Lloris--------------------------------------------
-------WalkerPeters-------Alderweireld---------Sanchez-----------Davies-------------
----------------------Sissoko--------------Wanyama------------Skipp------------------
-----------------------------------------------Eriksen----------------------------------------
-------------------------------- Moura--------------------Llorente-------------------------

Subs : Gazzaniga, Vertonghen, Trippier, Rose, Winks, Son, Janssen.
 
My XI for this game would be:

4-2-3-1

-------------------Lloris
KWP---Davinson---Vertonghen---Davies
-------Wanyama------Winks
Son--------------Dele-----------------Lucas
-----------------Llorente

I would give a rest to Alderweireld, Trippier, Sissoko and Eriksen.
I would even go as far as putting Skipp instead of Winks
 
Huddlesfield are relegated for a reason - they are not very good. Nothing to play for except pride, this should be a straightforward game. Keep the ball, make them run around chasing shadows. Don't give them set pieces. Tire them out and then kill off the game early in the 2nd half to allow us to rest key players around the hour mark.

Resting Sissoko seems a no brainer, but not sure if Dier or Wanyama are ready to start games.

They are likely to defend deep and in numbers. Having Llorente in the box will help us provide an aerial threat to keep their CB's occupied. He will also be useful for defending set pieces if Toby or Jan are rested.

Same line up for me, AM, Left back and centre back are places we have good back ups with Lucas, Davies and Sanchez so no brainer those ones. Sissoko looked out on his feet so hopefully Wanyama can do a job and Trippier looked like he was struggling at times and we could you KWP going forward. Early goal will be key, longer it stays 0-0 more tired we will get and it would be good to be a able to bring Winks, Son and Dele off earlyish.
