      On the champions go in pursuit of the record.

      With another midweek game following this one, will Jürgen continue rotation for this one by resting Mo and Trent? With Jordan out is the default midfield now Fab, Gini and Naby?

      Burnley are safe and probably out of the running for a European berth. Will they come out and play?

      And what about this very strange 3 p.m. Saturday kickoff time? What will they think of next?  :)

      I think all the forwards will be eager to play every game, certainly Mo. After we play Arsenal on Wednesday we get another week off before the final 2 games so do we really need to rotate so much?

      BTW I think this could be quite a high scoreline, Burnley are quite depleted and as you say don't have much to play for whilst we have a forward who is very very eager to get another golden boot, the greedy git! ;-)

      3PM Saturday kickoff and the pubs are back open - The little things we took for granted a few months back!

      A few more goals for Mo would be nice, hopefully another clean sheet for Alison. That would get him level with Nick Pope in the race for the golden glove (providing of course we score against him)

      Salah is in a great moment, full of confidence and hunting that golden boot, think it would be a mistake to rest him. To be honest it would be risk resting him or Mane for the remainder of the season because everyone who is filling in for them at the moment are showing they aren’t good enough to do so.

      The biggest issue for me is Bobby and Gini, both are odds on to start I think but their performances, along with Ox, have been miserable.

      Hopefully we can smash a 4-0 win again but it won’t be easy, they are in good form and will pack the defence in search of a 0-0.

      Football wasn't made for three matches in six days. Of course it is a dropoff in quality when a first-line player starts on the bench, but the greater risk is for players getting injured. So if Jürgen rests Mo and Trent, it is also to avoid a risk. I worry about Virgil and Joe because they are almost certain to be on from the start. Then there's another game Wednesday.

      A game every 3/4 days isn’t new territory for this team. We’ve been used to that with the Champions League and League games, especially over the Xmas periods too. This team is more than capable of handling it, especially Mane and Salah who have had virtually no injuries in the last 3 years so they’d have to be very unlucky to pick up an injury in the final few games. Same with Virgil.

      I understand going careful with the likes of Keita but some players you just don’t have to worry about as much, especially with the extra subs because it allows more flexibility with taking them off early.

      A lot less stop/start sprinting and movement at centre back though, which by my understanding, decreases the risk of injury.

      Midfield pressing, FB up and down the line, and forwards making runs are more at risk I think.

      Would keep playing Ox to get some form back as he has been sh*te and keep Naby going to keep his confidence up. Would drop Bobby for Minamino to get him up to speed as well.

      Hate Burnley and their dogshite football.

      5-0

      Agree. Ox in place of Keita at the mo.

      Keep Bobby with Mo and Sane  up front for the last games to get over the line.

      Miniman has plenty of time to shine.

      Yes : 5-0 just towards the side bet with City on GD . ;D

      Agree, sort of, I wouldn’t start Ox he’s been f***in gash of late, Keita don’t need resting he needs more games, so I’d have a mid three of Fab, Naby & Gini, and a top three of Salah, Minamino & Mane, that’s a front four of, Gini, Mini, Mane & Mo, we’ll T**t Burnley as we go ........for another 3 points closer to that record,

      Usual suspects at the rear, I doubt very much they’ll break sweat especially Virgil, good chance to increase the goals for column, Burnley playing only for pride.



      5-0 Champions.....Mo Hat- Trick, Mina grabbing his first, &  Mane adding to his tally, we might even see a Trent special......you heard it here first ?


                                                                          Alisson

                                                          Trent   Gomez  Virgil  Robbo

                                                                         Fabinho

                                                            Salah.                     Mane


                                       Bench;  Adrian, Williams, Milner, Ox, Jones, Origi, Elliot

      So you'd play Ox because despite being sh*t so far he might come good, bit of a risk isn't it?
      Id go with as strong a team as possible and sub in players when we are a few goals up.

      I can see 4 or 5 changes to the side who played midweek. I wouldn't be shocked if we see everyone favorite CB Lovren started and Minamino through the middle for Firmino.

      ------------------Alisson-----------------
      TAA-----Lovren-----VvD----Robbo
      -----Milner-------Fabino----Ketia--
      --Salah--------Minamino-----Mane--

      Think that Ox is overdue a performance.
      Maybe last opportunity for the season.

      Can always bring Keita on at half time if Ox is below par.

      Wouldn't mind that at all to be honest. Would mean playing Bobby but could go to the 4-2-3-1 we used a few times last season with Shaq in the team. Unless we put Keita as a 10 and bench Bobby.


      Right now though; Origi, Ox, Gini, Minamino and Bobby need to significantly up their game because a case can easily be made for all of them to be left out.

      I think he’s best suited as a impact sub mate, for him to play at his best he prefers through the middle, but Jürgen wants him wider, so he has to adapt, using him as a impact sub will build his confidence, he has less pressure to deal with and we could have the game done and dusted by then, for me he’s had the best spell we’re gonna see from him this season, he looks jaded, and to be honest he looks like a fish up a tree at the moment,
      Naby on the other hand is the only player who has improved since the lockdown, so he starts every game now, til the end, Gini is Gini, he gives everything he can , looks like Hendo could be out for one or two so I think Gini & Millie will take turns , with Fab & Keita as our mid three,

      The Ox remember was still in recovery mode, the lockdown hasn’t helped him, he needed a run of games to get him back at his best, but the lockdown fu**ed him, so for him it’s like taking three steps back and one going forward, Anyhoo, I reckon we’ll hand out a proper f***in mauling to poor old Burnley.


       Up The Reds.
