Due to the likely return of Matthijs de Ligt, two players have to fear for their starting spot.

Jurriën Timber, the initial replacement for De Ligt, may have to make way again.

Another option is that Patrick van Aanholt has to give way and Daley Blind will play at left back, or that Blind himself becomes the child of the bill.



Who should give way to Matthijs de Ligt in Orange?

  • Jurrien Timber

  • Patrick van Aanholt

  • Daley Blind

  • Someone else

  • Nobody: never change a winning team

Laporte had heard that Álvaro Morata, who missed some great opportunities, was being whistled.

"It is not the first time. With us there is no doubt about Álvaro. He has already shown a lot. He may not have been successful today, but the next day he will make three and shut everyone's mouth."
