    So is Sissoko going to bring up his game in this one? I cannot see any power in the middle of the park if Wanyama is injured and Dembele is not in the starting 11. We are going to over run by Everton in this area if there is no one controlling the ball for us and holding on to possession. Are we going to rely on Dier to do that? It’s a no no. He has a habit of giving the ball away easily, inaccurate passing at times and not the guy for me to control the play in midfield. Bad sign to me and it’s a wrong tactical set up for Poch in my honest opinion…

      I would rather he starts Wink in midfield and partner him with Dier there.
