Scarlett isn't ready to play Europa Conference.. Chelsea is several steps too far.
No player is "ready" until he gets match experience. If you put a 17 year old in a team of experienced players, he will develop very quickly. If you put a 17 year old in a team of other 17 year olds against first team opposition, they'll all run around like headless chickens which is what happened in the first ECL game against Pacos.

The other thing Scarlett has going for him is that a rookie striker can cause a lot less damage than a rookie defender, midfielder or goalkeeper which means we can take more chances with them. The priority with Chelsea is going to be defending and, with any luck, we'll get a goal or two on the break so defence and midfield is where the experience needs to be.

Speaking as a vegetarian, I love a sausage in batter, but am guessing that's not your point.

Highly inappropriate image, for the most Woke Stadium in The Universe.

Didn't you get the email?:

  • Beer battered tofu and chips, available at The Linesman
  • Jackfruit sandwich with fries, available at N17 Grill
  • Vegetable katsu curry, available at Naan and Noodle
  • Grilled shitake mushroom burger, available at select Touchline Grills
  • Sweet potato and lentil pie, available at all Tap Inns

...and put your F888ing waste in the proper bin, or The Bastard Steward will get you.

"The players from both teams will be drinking water on the day from cartons provided by Spurs, as opposed to plastic bottles."
Inspired by the environmentally friendly disposal of plastic glasses by Hungary fans after Rahim Sterling's goal the other week.

Anyone sampled any of the above shite? Asking for a friend.

...and yes, we're getting battered.

Antonio is Innocent!
How best to stop Lukaku running riot?
Let him loose in the concourse, 90 minutes before kick off:

  • Beer battered tofu and chips, available at The Linesman
  • Jackfruit sandwich with fries, available at N17 Grill
  • Vegetable katsu curry, available at Naan and Noodle
  • Grilled shitake mushroom burger, available at select Touchline Grills
  • Sweet potato and lentil pie, available at all Tap Inns

He won't make it onto the pitch.
 
If all are fit:

Lloris
Emerson Sanchez Dier Regi
Skipp Hjolberg
Ndombele Dele
Kane Son

4-2-2-2

Emphasis on the wing backs getting forward and Dele and Ndombele being the link to attack for Son and Kane.

Kane will at times from deeper aswell which means he will have Son ahead of him and Dele making runs in behind. Direct attacking football with a solid block of 4 protecting the centre of our half CM to CB
 
I think 9 players are pretty certain to start, but 2 positions unclear atm :

1) I think at least one of Son, Moura or Bergwijn will be fit - giving us our missing forward, if not its between Lo Celso and Dele.
2 ) CM position could be between Ndombele, Lo Celso or Dele - first two should give most creativity whilst Dele could offer another goal threat.

Lloris
Royal, Romero, Rodon, Reguilon
Hojbjerg, Skipp ?
? Kane, Gil
Subs : Gollini, Doherty or Davies, Sanchez, 2 of (Ndombele, Lo Celso, Dele), Winks, Scarlett
Not available : Tanganga (suspended), Dier (inj),Sessegnon (inj),probably 2 of Son, Moura, Bergwijn (inj)
Thanks.
What time is the Nuno presser usually?
