Will it be a Merry Christmas?

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on this bright Christmas Day. Hopefully the greeting that it’s sending will be merry indeed.

Pochettino’s targeting three wins over the next week. This is win number one, though Caicedo’s missing in action and that’s not great (UPDATE: illness): big task for Ugochukwu. Jackson and Broja both start (either with Jackson on the left, which we’ve seen in-game before, or in a 4-2-2-2)! And Lavia’s on the bench for the first time.

Here we go!
