For me it would depend on how we lined up behind Mirallas.

We seemed to go with a flat 3 in Saturday which meant we had no-one in the higher central areas of the pitch either during the build up or more importantly when we did get in dangerous positions.

Mirallas up front would probably work best with Naismith behind him as he'd always be looking to get into the box - but then you'd have the problems of consistent link and build up play.

If we're looking to win the ball back and then release people quickly then Mirallas would be the best option.

But if we're looking for more control of the possession then I think we need a focal point - which would be Naismith.

Mirallas is very active so this would be needed since he will be likely to drop back our out wide to offer options, meaning someone will need to slide into a central area out of necessity

I feel like Mirallas has the potential to be a very good forward if he can get his feet under him and is trusted with the role for a few games and the team adapts to him being there. If for example we are looking to play with a central target man, Mirallas is not that.

Mirallas was not making runs into off side, he started his movement from an offside position. I can only assume he was told to do it with the aim to try to make the opposition back four drop off to allow our midfield more space.

Townsend, Dembele and Vertonghen are back for this one. Paulinho returned for them last week so its shaping up to be a tough game.

Roberto Martinez says Lacina Traore has a chance of making the travelling party for the weekend game at Spurs.

Gerard Deulofeu will also be part of the squad, with Seamus Coleman returning to the fold as well.

Romelu Lukaku and Antolin Alcaraz remain sidelined, along with long-term absentees Arouna Kone and Darron Gibson.

"Sunday Bloody Sunday. What a great song. It really encapsulates the frustration of a Sunday, doesn't it? You wake up in the morning, you've got to read all the Sunday papers, the kids are running round, you've got to mow the lawn, wash the car, and you think "Sunday, bloody Sunday!"- Alan Partridge

Haha as you can see, I've made every effort to introduce myself gracefully.

Can already see this as being a relief, Spurs fans are mainly bellends.

I'm included in that.

there used to be a lad who posted on here all the time that supported Spurs and he was sound

there was also a lad whose relative was something to do with Spurs at board level a few years' back too

on the whole we've had decent experiences of you lot....no pressure like!
