Big game this weekend after an interesting week... City (Look to be back in the groove after last night) & Liverpool making it very clear where their priorities are after that team vs Wolves.... Both have tricky games.. Pool @ Brighton, City at home to Wolves !!!
Hard to know what to think about our game ! Hopefully a flat performance from the Front 4 on Tues was just a blip as United's defense is still dogshlt despite all the goals at the other end. Clearly united are a Threat going forward and I'm expecting a high scoring game (esp if Verts is still out). I suspect, like with Most games vs United it will be won in the middle of the park. Clearly Pogba (if fit) might be a game changer for them, such a shame that Dembele is gone/still hurt as he BOSSED him last season. Not sure Winks, Sissoko matches up great against Pogba, Matic & Herrera (the rat)
Like with most games Vs the Top 6 it will all likely come down to whether Eriksen, Dele & Son play well.... They get us on the front foot, their runs from midfield are a nightmare to track and enable kane to play provider
As far as the team goes I guess there isn't really much debate given whos fit other that which FB and does lamela start for Son ?
Do you play Trips high up and make Shaw defend but the thought of Rashford against him is scary. Rose ahead of Davies all day. I'd start Sonny seeing as he's off to Asia after this one. Given we don't have a fit DM do we just play Eriksen deeper with Lamela's energy, flood the midfield and try to win a high scoring shootout
Wouldn't be shocked if it ended up 4-3 to either side
Either way expect it to be a cracking game !!
