Very harsh on Kovacic if that's what Tuchel does. 

Mount has been ordinary so why not give him a rest?

It'd be a brave move to play Kovacic as far up the pitch as one of the 10s.  
But sure Werner or Ziyech could come in for Mount alongside Havertz and Lukaku.

But all the 10s will struggle now that we have a big 9 instead of 3 mobile 10s.  It makes the system harder for 10s (and easier for everyone else).

He surely couldn't do much worse than Mount has been delivering.

Ziyech is doing nothing. Him and Mount need a head wobble for a week or two.

It is harsh on Kovacic and I wouldn’t be upset if Kovacic keeps his place, but an away London derby against Spurs, for me you pick your strongest 11 and that has to include Kante, for me.

Mount, agreed, but bringing Kante in for him means a change in formation and I can’t see that happening for this match.

Can’t really afford to drop Mount for this one. We need a creative player in that front three and Ziyech has started the last two so I can’t see him playing this one. Maybe we could bring in Werner for Havertz if he’s tired.

Mount, Havertz and Lukaku is our best three and we should try to build chemistry between them. I liked a lot of what I saw against Arsenal and Liverpool, the way we moved the ball and got into promising positions is what looked encouraging, just some poor decisions that need to be addressed.

They don't play the same position

It will be two from Kante, Kova and Jorginho

I like Kova but cannot imagine anything good happening without Jorginho . Kante isn't great in the final third which is where we seem to be asking him to win the ball these days and Kova has got a goal and assist ...tough one to call , who'd be a manager / coach these days.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Kante on the bench given his recent injury situation.

Really? Wow.

 

So why suggest he play instead of Mount ?

Strange
