AWB---Bailly-----Maguire---Shaw

Fred, Mata, James, Williams could obviously take certain positions.

Spurs away will be 3 at the back

The midfield will be interesting as Pogba isn't suited to that double defensive pivot... Hopefully the sight of Mourinho can motivate him

Is Rashford fit?

Yeah similar to what we had against City and Chelsea. Will be interesting to see if Matic keeps his place.

It’s a game we could really do with at least a point as a loss brings Spurs right back up with us again.

Having Pogba, Greenwood and Rashford to bring off the bench isn’t bad if Ole doesn’t want to change the team too much.

First game back id bench Pogba, go with McT Fred and Bruno like the last few games we played. Spurs isn’t the game to try a completely new combination of midfielders especially after this lay off.

Mike, yeah that’s what I think Ole will do as well. Unless Pogba’s in a lot better shape fitness wise than the others.

This end to the season is going to be a big test of his squad management. We’ve potentially got a lot of games with the Europa and FA Cup, but luckily we’ll have a fully fit squad. For now.

I know everyone is in the same boat, but it’s so frustrating that we didn’t get to play the Spurs game before lockdown.

We’d have had a great chance of beating them. They had no fit strikers, no momentum or confidence, we’d just beat City and we’re flying.

Now it’ll be like first game of the season again. God knows which sides will turn up!

Name wise, I think this would be our strongest team.

Not sure about practicality though.

..Rashford....Martial....Greenwood

..............Pogba....Fernandes

I can understand Ole be cautious in the first game back, but after that, we should be seeing those 5 most of the time. We should be absolutely walloping everybody else after the Sours game.

Depends when the FA Cup and Europa start up again. If they run alongside the league we’ll see plenty of rotation.

I've written out a team and deleted/re-typed Pogba about ten times.

Urgh.

I know he's one of our best players but I also feel he's such a detriment to the development of the team.

I really hope that changes with Bruno around.

This.

Spurs should probably be 3-4-1-2, with Fred and McT box-to-box, Bruno pushed up as false nine (more or less how he’s played on occasion more recently) and split forwards.

I'd like to think it'll be the same "side" that beat Chelsea at the star of this season.

You’d drop Matic?

Well, that’s more moving around than he does in most appearances.
