    I feel like Antonio always plays well against us.

    We've lost very few games over the last couple of seasons but this lot and Liverpool seem to have our number on their turf. Hopefully we can change that.

    Son and Aurier must start IMO.

    At least we know now why Alli is sulking, so he needs to get over that sooner rather than later and there's not a better game to start with than these Vernon....1-3 (Kane 2, Alli)

    Our attitude is key to getting a good result in this game. When we play against Arsenal, for example, we are really up for it and get straight at them, putting them on the back foot. We must play this way against West Ham.

    Come on, north London!

    Must win. No excuses. No mercy! I THE REV RIPSHER!! hate this team and their stupid stadium. If we aren't flying for this game I'm gonna be sick. We. Have. To. Win. COYMFS!

    ----------------------Lloris------------------------
    --Toby------------Sanchez---------Jan--------
    Aurier--------Dier--------Dembele----Davies
    Son-----------------Kane---------------Eriksen

    I normally don't like to start Son, but his speed should do this lot in. Bring on Alli, WInks and Llorente to finish them off. 0-3 Hmm. Now that I think about it maybe flip Son and Eriksen so son can use his speed to help out on that side. Meh. Son won't provide much defensive cover regardless so I'd just go for the jugular.

    I hope for this line up as well. Bring Dele on with about 20 minutes to go unless things are going bad.

    Yes I like that except Poch doesn't drop Dier for no good reason.

    Ough actually it is weird one to call given the situation with potential tiredness and injury issues.

    Given the injury update (Vic, Rose, Lamela out) and situation with Dembele. Also limiatations of Vert and Alli missing the coming CL game, and fact that Winks played his first full game in EFL + GNK made his comeback I would say we could go as follows -

    ---------------Lloris----------------
    ----Toby---Davison--Jan-------
    -Aurier-------Dier---------Davies-
    ----Son---Eriksen------Dele----
    --------------Kane----------------

    Pretty much only realistic alternatives would be to use:
    Sissoko instead of Son
    and
    Tripps instead of Aurier

    If Poch truly had mastered rotation ..we would see more of GKN and Foyth in PL games

    That's the lineup I would go with. Eriksen might have to sit back a little further sort of in CM/AM median territory and control the game from there. I think he's our best alternative to Dembele for that job at the moment, until perhaps Winks takes a step forward. Really don't want Sissoko starting in more challenging EPL games, which I would consider the Hams in the upper half. Also wouldn't want him starting in most CL matches. Definitely would go with Aurier.

    Would start all 3 behind Kane more centrally than normal and tell Aurier and Davies to really push on as West Ham play pretty narrowly themselves and I'd expect our possession to allow us to use our wing backs in a very attacking manner without suffering on the counter.

    Wouldn't hate that. I think Foyth looked like he could be ready mentally and as far as ability. I would like to see GKN a couple more times to really see if he were ready though. Especially because it would require him to really play more centrally than he used to. Aurier going to need the space to make those hopefully ridiculously awesome runs.

    Dembele is needed for this game, he can hold the ball and boss the park. Dier can't do that and Eriksen will be shoved away. I would rather bench Dier and play Eriksen and Dembele with Son, Dele and Kane up front. But Poch doesn't bench Dier!

    Is there is no one in the youth setup who is better than Sissoko? I would guess we are trying to play him to gain some kind of value but you only need to start an young English player a couple of times and they are suddenly worth millions anyway.

    Is Dembele injured?

    Sissoko is been pivotal this season?!

    Not confident.

    Must win

    Neeh, in this game I would not complain too much about Sissoko. It is nice that Son gets some time off before CL game (should not take lesser oppositions there for granted either - and random reminder but even winning ONE GAME in CL group stage brings in 1.5 mil€). Would be nice if N'Koudou would get some minutes off the bench today :)

    COYS! Lets smash those arseholes and pile on their misery. If we beat them today, they will be in relegation places as Everton and Bournemouth behind them play each other :D :D

    If so, this means Levy is asking Poch to start with Sissoko? !
    I wish we kept Livemore
