I’m not so sure Jürgen will change too much, I’m of the opinion that you never change a winning side, so using the same logic, I think it’s only fair that those under performers be given the chance to put things right,
No one came off that pitch on Thursday with any credit whatsoever, yet those same players carried us through 33 league games losing only twice, in fact losing only thrice in two seasons, no one will be hurting more than them, they clinched our first title in 30 years the week before so their pride took one hell of a kicking when their lacklustre performance got severely punished, by our main protagonists, for professional athletes, that is a embarrassment,
I’d be inclined to field the same side to face Villa, I’d be wanting them to take their hurt out on them, I’d be wanting us to be at least 3 up before HT, if so, then I’d be changing things around, we have 5 subs so I’d use them all, not sure in which order but I guess it will depend on the individual,
Needless to say though that Jürgen named Jones, Williams & Elliot so that’s three possibilities right there, Keita thru the middle perhaps alongside Ox in central midfield with Fabinho holding, not so sure I’d leave Robbo out tho, he is pivotal to our attack and links up with Mane superbly, we’ll soon see won’t we, not long to wait now.
I stupidly predicted a 0-4 drubbing on Thursday (cough,cough), Villa are not Citeh, so fuckit....
4-0 Champions 🤪
