Alderweireld in for Smalling

Little did I think about trading in Smalling, but needs must. With the Man U defender out of action until 19th December possibly, I thought I simply had to get rid. Earlier in the week, this move was unthinkable. Now you can see why I don't make transfer moves usually until the day before the match at the earliest, if I can help it.

In comes in ESPSoccer.com's first Spurs player! Tottenham look tight defensively, so I don't see Alderweireld as a bad acquisition, even if I do struggle to pronounce and spell his name. Anyway, he goes straight on the bench as I've decided to persist with three at the back.

Lukaku, meanwhile, remains skipper as I do believe the goalscoring Toffee is still able to tap into a rich vein of form.
