  • There is only one thing weirder than posting on internet forums... lurking on internet forums!
    Registration only takes a minute and removes most of the adverts. You're here now, you might as well...

    Get involved!

Vorm, Trippier, Carter-Vickers, Rose, Onomah, Dembele, Amos, Edwards, N'Koudou, Clarke, Janssen, Llorente

None of those were in Asia because they were either sold/loaned or deemed not good enough. Is that about right?

Maybe there are question marks about Rose and Llorente. Wanyama was still away

Etete (17), NDombele (22) have arrived (Clarke loaned)

Son and Foyth miss the first two games while Aurier and Dier are both injured. Lloris went home so maybe he will miss the first game back? Maybe not

Skipp, Tanganga and Parrott added to their squad value during the trip to Asia. Roles not so much

Lloris, Gazzaniga, Walker-Peters, Davies, Sanchez, Vertonghen, NDombele, Winks, Sissoko, Dele, Lamela, Moura, Kane are all 100% available for selection against Villa (maybe Wanyama and Dier too, but will they be match fit?)

Eriksen and Alderweireld we're still not sure about

Lo Celso, Sessegnon and Dybala are all linked, some more than others but they probably won't be included in the starting eleven

We Could see our first line up of the new season like this

Lloris

Walker-Peters Sánchez Vertonghen Davies

Winks
Sissoko NDombele
Dele

Moura Kane​

Edit: Missed out Lamela lol

Pretty straight forward tactically for Poch. Have someone put Grealish in their back pocket and grind them down.

Hopefully a nice simple 3-0 to get things rolling.

I would rather see us play with Lucas in the team and Winks + Ndombele in midfield against a team like Villa at home. Winks + Ndomble + Sissoko in midfield could be a good option when we go to places like the Etihad.
