Barcelona rest Messi yesterday despite him winning the Ballon d'Or and scoring a hattrick within the last week.
I'm sure Kane will get over it.

Not in the roundup I am reading right now. But having a look at Reddit most fans seem to think that they will field a relatively strong 11 due to wanting to get back in winning form since their league run has stuttered.

If kane usually avoided injury & looked full of energy then he would have a good case. But every season he seems to get a fairly serious injury & in general he isn't the most mobile player who seems to buzz around full of life. He's such a crucial player too so makes total sense to rest him anytime we can. Especially when you also add in him normally playing for England during every international break.It ain't the Kane show, it's all about what's best for Spurs.
Resting Kane for a nothing game when the guy always gets told he looks like he's close to burnout is clearly the right thing to do.
We get told we are wrong for not giving youngsters more time yet get the chance to give a youngster more time and it's the wrong thing? Madness
Good. I believe we’ll see start a stronger squad than most expect. Our squad needs reps against good attacking sides.Lewandowski will play and squad players like Gnabry and Coutinho will probably start.
They will have a much stronger XI than us.
and if they play their first team, that side you proposed might even keep the score down below a double digit defeat.So just to remind who we DO have in this game -
Certain first team players-
Youngsters who have had chance to play (but very limited mintues) -
Academy/reserves players who have taken part in preseason games -
I think from this selection we could go with back 3
- would give us option to use fullbacks + both Foyth and Tanganga in backline
- would not include players who are not capable and/or cannot play for us in the future rly (Eriksen, Wanyama, Rose)
- would allow new-joiners in Sessegnon and Lo Celso to get time
- would allow youngsters to get minutes (Skipp, Parrott)
It's like 3-4-3 essentially. Only question is if Parrott gets enough service. Though I hope wings could help to provide it.
It's a world of difference starting a game as opposed to getting on the pitch when your team is 4 goals up and less motivated to play at a high tempo.I’m really hoping that Lo Celso and Parrot get a start, I want to see them play a full game.
The problem being that as JM will play quite a few youngsters they (Lo Celso and Parrot) probably won't shine.It's a world of difference starting a game as opposed to getting on the pitch when your team is 4 goals up and less motivated to play at a high tempo.
I think both of them are nailed on to start.
