    Could be homesick - bit of a coincidence that DCC found himself ostracised at the same time.
    There were rumours of an incident in training, which was attributed to Jones for obvious reason, but could be them falling out with the squad.

    Last time he played Tottenham he scored a hat trick, so I hope Sellés sorts him out for that game,

    On TSP Jacob Tanswell said the feeling seems to be that DCC doesn't suit the high line Ralph and now Selles like to play. Lack of aggression and pace and concerns about his ability to defend one on one. Lyanco also offers an option at full back which may be why he gets on the bench ahead of him.

    Orsic seems off the pace, lacks the speed to transition the ball forward quickly (although that doesn't stop Elyounoussi getting games) and may suit a team that has higher possession stats than Saints usually do.

    If the above is accurate I'm again left wondering why they were bought at all. Oh well.

    I’d have thought we would have needed more than one or even two defenders on the bench. And we can’t defender aggressively on the front foot all game. And either way - Bednarek doesn’t suit that style either. Hence why he was turfed out in the first place

    I'm sure I read that DCC wasn't in the squad a match or two ago due to a calf injury. If it's carried on niggling it might be an explanation rather than anything deeper.

    That's the most if, but and maybe tweet I've ever seen!

    Chelsea’s buy back for Tino kicks in this summer doesn’t it?

    A £100m double deal for him and Lavia

    Sadly he’s been out injured so long now that there’s a chance he won’t come back the same player. I’d expect he’d have to prove himself all over again before clubs would be looking at him.
