This will be a ‘fascinating’ game, if only from a tactical perspective.
IF Poch gets the selection and the tactics right, we could well do better than we might currently imagine.
The squad is a mess of injuries, politics and empty spaces that ought to have been filled in the last window.
However this doesn’t automatically equate to a shambles, tomorrow night.
Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld have been rock solid and Rose has proved himself better than Ben Davies of late.

The biggest riddle for Poch to solve is who he partners with Eric Dier.
Surely the out of

Which leaves Mauricio staring down the barrel of the ‘Will it be Sissy or Victor?’ barrel.
Hobson’s choice, eh?
