      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

      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

      Not going to lie  Not happy with that team selection

      To me he has fudged an easy decision ... even if one of them dropped into midfield to stop us being outnumbered it would still be a square peg in a round hole.

      But, this man has more than earned everyone's trust so I have to trust him. Im not sure city would have expected it.

      But for me jota should be through the middle, mane and salah on their respective wings with keita milly or Jones in with hendo and gini.

      The full backs will have to stay back abit more for me and its gonna be tough for the midfield 2 sitting in front.

      Mad line up and very bold against a team that can move the ball around as good as City. Midfield will have a job on their hands but love seeing us go this attacking.

      Goals in this one!
