Well, this is interesting. Walker, though previously thought to be sidelined for this game, makes the start, so either his injury wasn't that bad or Sherwood was playing mind games. And, for the first time we start in a one-striker formation under Big Tim. This could be a 4-4-1-1 with Chadli in the hole behind Adebayor, or it could mean Chadli's starting up top as an emergency striker in a 4-4-2. Or it could mean a 4-2-3-1 with a Bentaleb-Dembele double-pivot. WHO KNOWS!
The usual rules apply. Be nice. It's just a game, so try not to fly off the handle when things aren't going well. No links to illegal streams. No abuse directed towards players or match officials. And above all, have fun.
