Davies or Wimmer?


Jan Vertonghen suffered an ankle injury when he twisted it stretching to try and keep the ball in play, how serious it is and how long he will be out is too early to say Pochettino told us after the game.

“It looks bad for Jan. We need to wait to assess him better on Sunday or Monday. He is very disappointed.”

That means if we retain the back three there is a clear choice between Ben Davies who plays the role for Wales or Kevin Wimmer who is the left-footed backup to Jan Vertonghen. Jamie Redknapp and Thiery Henry were both working as pundits for Sky and they were talking about Ben Davies playing the role, they didn't even mention Kevin Wimmer.

Wimmer played in the system against Arsenal and with the Europa League starting in February Davies might well be needed to rotate with Danny Rose, that could affect any decision to play Davies in a back three. We would surely be looking for continuity of selection at the back so perhaps Wimmer will get the nod in a weeks time

  1. This is why we have a squad of players who are comfortable in fulfilling the roles they are asked to play.
    I have no doubt that either Wimmer or Davies will fill the gap left by Verts if required to do so.
    Worrye ye notte….

  2. It would be Wimmer for me.
    Today was a joy to watch. One of them days when nearly every bounce and pass went our way. I had Foster ( their keeper ) as MOTM and he conceded 4 !
    Harry is almost unstoppable when we play balls into him that fast. Everyone was on their game. Danny & Walks played like flying angels. Dembo & Why as strong as horses and Ericson & Ali's movement and touch was so , so good.
    COYS Bring on City
