    I suspect Doherty was removed for tactical reasons. Midfielder on for a fullback with Spurs chasing. Wouldn’t read too much into it fitness wise.

    Yeah, was tactical surely.

    He had a good debut. I think it will be interesting to see how he would fare against a side with a wide forward, like United with Rashford.

    Thanks for sharing. He did look tired at the end of the match, I will say that.

    When Doherty is at his best he’s doing lung busting runs over and over. He made a few in this game but realistically I don’t know how many players are fully match fit for that style of play on Day 1 of a season.

    Interesting. I assumed tactical when it was Ndombele that came in as opposed to Aurier. But maybe that implies more about more about Aurier's standing in Jose's plans.

    I assume any lack of fitness in Doherty's case would be fatigue from such a heavy schedule, as he couldn't really be suffering from early season rustiness? If so, it's bit concerning in the short-term given Tottenham's heavy schedule, granted they'll be some squad rotation. EG might be right too though, Mourinho's comments can't always be taken at face value.

    ...losing 0-1 at home. Its all tactical.

    I take your point though It's hard to figure out how good Everton were, and how less good Spurs were, but that Everton midfield ran all day. But Mourinho will be under pressure soon if they lose another couple of games.

    This is it, he had a very long season send with Wolves. Its not going to get any easier. So maybe Mourinho is aware of that, and that is a good tactical substitution especially when chasing a goal.

    "You can, for example, look to Doherty, a player normally in incredible condition," he said.

    "He didn't have pre-season. He went direct from holidays to national team matches, no pre-season at all, not one single training session. He played two consecutive matches.

    "Today, he was not Matt Doherty like he normally is."

    Mourinho talking above.

    Nothing to do with this game, but I did worry about this move, not sure its a good move.

    Mourinho is at an important test stage of his management career, If he does not produce the goods now at Spurs he is entering the Has-Been Stage of a Football Manager ! !

    This could work out well for Doherty, hopefully - ​https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11675/12073455/gareth-bale-and-sergio-reguilon-could-change-tottenhams-system

He is not a like-for-like upgrade on Davies. His attacking qualities mean that he is more suited to mirroring the role of Doherty on the right than slotting seamlessly into the existing shape. A formation change would appear inevitable.

    Switching to a genuine back three makes sense.
