I know being obssessed with possession is a bit Brenda Rogers but it was 71% last week against Villa, meaning Villa had less than 19 minutes on the ball, you can see why we're so hard to beat. Expect our lineup to be as the last post with aside from Naismith for Lukaku is our strongest side, if Deulofeu plays a part we're pretty much there. Still expect a few to be short of full fitness which is where dominating possession proves so useful. Is Naismith such a step down from the Lukaku of the last 2 months? He's already scoring more than Lukaku has been and that clever movement to receive the pass off Pienaar against Villa gives me hope that he can be a bit of a revelation in this spell where we're short up front. He is a good finisher, busy in the box and far better in the air than he should be for his height, lacks a little height and presence of course but when we keep the ball so well I think we can afford a striker who doesn't spend the whole game isolated backing into his defender and wrestling to hold on to a ball.
1-3 Everton, we're due a performance that makes people take us seriously again and we have form already in North London against a superior Arsenal.
