I know Spurs are 2 up but Sanchez is a disaster, how have Boro not scored from one of his errors, they seem to assume still that he'll deal with the high ball competently.
He has been brilliant recently but he has been shaky as hell tonight

Our best striker, our best midfielder and our best GK are all out.
You're not down to the bare bones though, that would mean starting likes of Walkers Peters, Skipp and Troy Parrott.

It's time in any case Ndombele and Lo Celso stepped up a bit. Both have shown in other leagues they are fantastic midfielders. Lamela another we haven't seen for ages.

Honestly he has been brilliant this season. Having a stinker tonight though.
Not early part of the season when ball was drifting over his head for the Villa and Newcastle goals. At this stage of his career there's always a mistake in him if you really target him imo. That said the Belgian duo have been equally as poor in last three months.

2nd half been more boring but Boro deserve that goal.

Spurs bringing on Dele to see this one out.

Son's pace and ability on the ball is crazy. I know Boro aren't PL but still.

Lo Celso looks like he'll end up a good Eriksen replacement, bit profligate at the moment.

Great reading TFC

About to get fecked by Saville
Bringing Son on really changed the game. He's ruined almost every attack.
Dele is going to be Mourinho's Fellaini here. He'll default to playing him in the hope he'll pop up with some goals.
If Eriksen takes this free kick I'm turning the tele off and going to Morrisons to get some fecking milk.

Gotta say I've been very impressed with Tanganga. Early days but he looks a real talent to me.

Yeah definitely the highlight for me last night, hope we get to see more of him, good to see Lamela back too even if it is only for a month.

Yeah I love Lamela - if he can just stay fit he is one of our best players plus he works his arse off.

Yeah I would say he would be first on the team sheet, a player Jose would love, just wish he could have more end product. He should be getting at least 10 goals a season with the work rate and technique he has.

ex-United Callum Whelan makes his first start for Watford.
What a terrible side from Watford. Hope they get knocked out. Have no idea about most of that team.

I can understand rotating, but this is a bit too much. I guess they want to focus everything on staying up.

If they win hopefully they do not bring in the big guns for us.
