Our Brazilian ‘enforcer’ Sandro has been back to his brilliant best this season and it was a concern for many fans to see the midfielder taken off during the win over West Ham at the weekend. With Moussa Dembele returning to full fitness, head coach Andre Villas-Boas may be anxious to reunite his first choice central pairing but what are Sandro’s chances?

On his Twitter feed, the player simply said,

“Hey guys, thanks for all the messages! I’m so pleased with our win today. I had a hard hit, but I’m feeling good! #sandroBeast #superSandro.”

There’s no word from the club yet but that might suggest that Sandro will take his usual place on the right for the Liverpool game tomorrow night. The player is clearly important to the side but is the ‘dream team’ of Sandro and Dembele becoming your first choice for the remainder of the season?




  1. I think once Scotty Parker is fit, you’ll see AVB move to a 4-3-3 formation with Scotty just in front of the back 4 and Dembele / Sandro in front. Bale and Lennon would be supporting Defoe or Adebayor.

  2. Hudd will defo start with either Dembele or Sandro, maybe give them 45 mins each. Hope Daws & Loris keep their places. Friedel and Gallas really are getting on a bit!

  3. It is way to early to say anything about our ‘prefered’ midfield pairing for the rest of the season.
    Right now, yes, it looks like Sandro and Dembele. But depending on Parker’s return, any January signings and the development of our youngsters (Caroll) it could be a very different midfield come February.

    We looked very good against West Ham. And I was very pleased to see Dempsey showing some of the skills we are paying him for. Still a long way to go for him (and Siggy) though before they, in my book, will be considered good enough for the squad Levy and AVB are building.
    The future is bright……..


    P.s. Thanks to Defoe for putting me back on top of the private Fantasy PL Football league, that I am in…….
    My captain!!!!!

  4. Best midfield 3 would be sandro mountinho and dembele behind main striker then we can sell Parker. Don’t get me wrong Parker is good but not as good as mountinho. That kind of midfield is a top four one standerdly

  5. Both dembele and Sandro are world class players and really complement each other, they are most definitely our best midfield pairing barring none. The only shortcoming when they play together is a world class number ten which we sorely need. A creative goalscorer in the mould of Rooney,silva, cazorla mata etc to play there. We must get this player in jan.
