    I wouldn't be surprised to see Luke Amos or Oliver Skipp on the bench

    I would be ok with either player you mentioned. Dembele, Dier, Eriksen, Vertonghen, Kane all need a rest.

    Take no chances and field the strongest team possible, Kane needs to sit it out obviously, but the rest should be good to go....

    Take no chances and field the weakest team possible. Anything else and we risk advancing in this tin pot competition and tiring out our already tired players.

    2 years ago I’d have 100% agreed with you, but with the club all but giving up on winning the league the two domestic cups are our only realistic targets, so why not, we might as well just go for it and try and win them both.

    There's a difference between rotating the team, and deliberately playing the "weakest" team in order to lose.

    The former I'm all for, the latter is ridiculous.

    So, Harry Kane will need to be on the bench in case Gazza gets injured right?

    The team will be heavily rotated and I fully expect us to lose as Watford field their strongest XI. That’s life eh

    Personally I’d like to see Gazzaniga get another full 90 under his belt, would like Winks & Wanyama to both get a full 90 & hopefully Dele get at least an hour in prep for Huddersfield on Saturday

    1) There will be squad rotation (thank fck)
    "We want to win," Pochettino said. "We rotate, trying to find the best solution to try to win games. But the obsession here in England is to try to disrespect the players who play in one or another competition, and for me, it's so difficult to understand.

    "If, tomorrow, Paulo Gazzaniga plays, or Serge Aurier, who played against Inter Milan but didn't play against Brighton -- it's like we disrespect the competition or we don't take it seriously."

    Pochettino said after the 2-1 loss to Inter Milan on Sept. 18 that questions about his squad choice were disrespectful to those who played, and on Tuesday, he said rotating the squad helps give players "confidence and trust."

    "When you sign players and have 24 players in your squad, you need to respect all the players," Pochettino said. "Sorry, but for me, it's so difficult to understand that obsession about why one or another plays. It's like all the managers want to lose [and] no one wants to win."

    Gazzaniga; Aurier, Sanchez, Jan, Davies; Wanyama, Sissoko; Lamela, Dele/Winks, GKN; Llorente

    We will lose 1-3 with this line up, but I think it is what we will put out there (or something similar, heavily rotated) and Watford will go for it with a strong side.
    I think Dele will either start or come in as a sub (if fit) as MP has already stated he is "the king of Milton Keynes"

    Pochettino said on Juan Foyth: "I don't believe he is going to play but he will be in the squad." He added that coaching staff from the Argentina national team had contacted him (Poch) to ask about Foyth's form "and how he is doing".

    with that said:
    Gazzaniga; Aurier, Sanchez, Jan, Davies; Wanyama, Sissoko; Lamela, Dele/Winks, GKN; Llorente

    Poor GKN, his jersey is posted up in the locker room but doesn’t make the squad

    Maybe, but real captains have a bit more to them than making finger shapes..

    Don't belittle the finger shapes, they are all knowing.
