I don’t do predictions. I’ve got a weird *It’ll jinx us* thing if I say we’re going to win…and I can’t bring myself to say we’re going to lose, or even draw.
As per all my rantings about the Watford and Liverpool games, I just want to see us pick it up A LOT. This possession-based filopastry is killing our attacking intent. What I’m witnessing over and again is that when we have possession in our half or the first 10m of the oppo’s half, all our Full backs, AMs and Kaneinho are in position, waiting for the ball to come forward or wide. I think we’re meant to play it into feet and then have runners going past the ball to receive a clever flick or one-two but, more often than not, there’s nobody running past and/or the flick gets cut out.
What I see other teams do is some slick inter-passing at pace…cutting through midfields and defences. We’re like Subbuteo players in comparison.
So are we going to be experimental and have our way with Inter, or are they going to royally……it doesn’t bear thinking about.
Team to play Inter: Vorm, Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Lamela, Eriksen, Son, Kane
Subs: Gazzaniga, Rose, Walker-Peters, Wanyama, Winks, Lucas, Llorente
