A draw would be a great result.

Not expecting us to win but if we keep it tight and Marko is up for it again then we have a slight chance of adding another point to our survival target.

I love Lanzini and the way he plays the game effortlessly. However, I've been disappointed with him this season as I think he's capable of so much more. He's not nearly scored enough goals and my god he's had plenty of chances too. I've lost count of the amount of times he's ballooned efforts into row z. He needs to seriously sharpen his game up next season which is why I think he'll be here for another season. That is unless he has the summer of his life playing at the World Cup. But to do that, he's going to have to play a lot more consistently than he has done for us. And just because he comes in the top 3 performers at different things for us, it doesn't necessarily mean he's been great as so many of our time ain't all that.

In my opinion, for the key role he's asked to play in our team and the ability he possesses, he should be getting close to 10 goals and 10 assists a full season.

A point tomorrow would be fantastic. I feel we have a chance of getting something out of it.
Would set up the Stoke game perfectly and winning that would see us home and dry.
Arnie will score tomorrow..!

Could be that he's felt the pressure since Payet left.
Being the only twinkle toes midfielder must weigh on him especially when you've got championship players around you.

Something very Spursy about this mob. Half the forum claiming we're irrelevant and how its our biggest game of the season and the other half claiming it means something :lol:

I'd accept anything as long as it isnt a confidence sapping mauling.

The problem with Lanzini is that he isn't what a lot of our fans want him to be. He isn't a playmaker. He is a second striker who needs service and his best games this season have been in a two with Arnie.

In the right side he could play number 8, but that side isn't us at the moment as our midfield is already too weak.

Mario is a make you tick kind of player and the nearest thing we have to a number 10.

Playing both leaves us looking lightweight but they would be great on the (rare) occasions we have the ball.

Fernandes for Antonio but otherwise unchanged for me.

He's had Arnautovic playing along side him shouldering the burden (arguably more so considering his price tag and expectation since arriving) so it's not like he's left with it all to do by himself carrying the team.

Have a feeling Arnie will do a Di Canio tomorrow and score a spectacular volley or something like that. If Hart plays, he probably needs more than one though.

You know that sinking feeling you get following this club? Well, for some inexplicable reason, I don't have it this morning, which means we are not going to lose this match today

Buzzing for today, i think we will get something out of the game (hopefully not a mauling!)

A point today would certainly do me :)

1 - 1 Ogbonna

I still think Conte will manage to motivate their players enough to score a brace in the first half. Then who knows what side will come back for the second half...

I was the same as Puff last week mate and like him I haven't got it today. I think they call it the kiss of death. :)
