Player in Training.
With Kane and Alli back and Dortmund needing to attack I can see us scoring an away goal and don't see the scoring the five goals needed if we get one away goal.
They need a rest.. leave them on bench

Not say dont,but they may also need game time to play their way back in to form?Foremost,win at Burnley,then that will be like a free swing at chelsea and see how we get on and assess the next 2 mighty fixtures.Dont forget,chelsea have a bad run of fixtures,so do arsenal compliments of the extra 2 games europa gobbles up,league cup for chelsea,If we won the next 3 fixtures in the PL,that really allows top 4 to be claimed already and dumb as it sounds??if we aint going to win the league we can do what bayern,madrid,barca have done for a decade,rest players before champions league games.
I am not advocating that,just putting it out there that that scenario may enter Poch`s thinking?If indeed we are in the last 8,we have a punchers chance of actually to keep going,if our big hitters are available.

There’s a lot of ‘if’s’ in there and it’s football.....Christ knows what’s going to happen. We’re definitely at the business/interesting part of the season and our new ‘normal’ is that we’re involved at the sharp end of the top two competitions. There are several things in our favour, the biggest of which is recent experience in both CL and Premier League. Poch is bright bloke, he will have learned from the previous trials and tribulations to our benefit. The players also. The other big thing is the desire and belief in this squad.

Kane talks about playing with his mates, no-one knows what will happen next, but one thing for sure our team won’t stop believing. I still struggle occasionally (most recently Pre Dortmund) to shake off the Spursy mentality, that it’s goong to go tits up. Maybe we’re going to go and win something major this year who knows. Somehow we seem to keep finding a way to win, in spite of the challenges. Two players of Kane and Dele’s quality coming back can only be a good thing. Poch will know how to play things, first beat Burnley, they are playing well at the moment. Not easy.
