      This is the most conflicted I’ve been picking a score, feel we could win 4-0 but just as easily lose 4-0... this will be a tense watch.

      Not gonna lie, really don’t like that line up. Needs to be Jota or Bobby and not both. We’ve looked poor whenever we don’t play a proper midfield three. Fingers crossed we have enough of the ball.

      With a sensible head on I totally agree mate and said the same a few days back but the joy of seeing us going all out still puts a smile on my face.

      Interesting that the manager has picked both Bobby and Diogo. Very attacking side and hopefully it will pay off with a win.

      I’m hoping Bobby plays as a proper midfielder and not as a 10 because Hendo and Gini will be outnumbered. I think if we we’re gonna sit deep and play on the counter it could work but we don’t play that way. I’m pretty nervous about the game and would take a draw all day

      Might even look like this:

      Hendo       Gini

      Salah         Mane              Jota

      Firmino

      Bobby is a lucky boy, hopefully a midweek break will give him the jolt he needs

      More than likely Salah goes top. He is the one we center the offense the most about.

      Got a semi reading that starting X1, Wow, adventurous or what, I think we’ll see Bobby drop back and Jota push forward, it’s fooling exciting whatever happens, I was fairly confident before now I’m FUCKIN BUZZZZZIINNNN,

      Win this today we open a 8 point gap over them, and despite the upturn at Spuds & Chavs they are both some way off matching us, massive game this especially for them, lose it then psychologically they fall further behind imo,



      1-2 Champions


      Jota & Mo

      For me that is the worst option though as Mane and Jota both not as effective from the right.

      Good to have Matip back in the side. Hope he doesn’t sprain an eye lash though! Apparently it was a bit tight in training!

      Agree on Jota not as effective on the right but from my recollection Mane looked really good there recently. Wasn’t that his position at Soton before coming here? I think he also started here on the right and moved over to accommodate Salah
