I don't think he'll start them he needs to make sure we get through as this squad probably needs a cup run I think he'll hope the first team squad players can get the game won after 60/70 minutes then allow him to bring one or two on.
the only one who might start is McTominay given he already has first team experience the club need to be careful with that kid he needs some protection as he became a bit of a target for fans during the Mourinho time not really his fault but they need to make sure he still feels he has a future.
Can't see it really. That would mean mctomminay playing in the back 3 which we know doesn't work. Not a huge fan of mctomminay when he is in his correct position. To be fair he is entitled to a chance the same as everybody else.
Think you could have more youngsters on the bench if you played more of the first XI but these lads all need a game.
Also, Dalot, McTominay & Periera are all in the starting XI plus 2 youngsters on the bench is hardly failing the club traditions.
Fred looking off the pace his passing needs to be quicker he sees it but to late as he wants an extra touch think it’s confidence just play it when you see it take the risk.
Team looks very disjointed doesn’t know if it should press or sit off but it’s a team that’s never played together so that’s understandable.
I always feel Mata is a player I like seeing in the team but no idea where he should play if he plays on the right of the front 3 we lack pace up top and width as he drifts to far inside but he doesn’t have the engine for the midfield 3.
Not the best but at least We are winning. I think it's a terrible midfield 3. All the front 3 are a little bit slower than the guys they have replaced. Some of these guys need game time but it is a disjointed line up.
Bit of a pick'n'mix team today, understandable being a cup game and resting players etc. But it doesnt fill me with confidence for Tottenham. Nice to see Chong come on but would like to see him start see if he can make an impact as he didn't really get into the game.
Hopefully they come back refreshed and raring to go after a week in Dubai.
