Tough call defensively for obvious reasons, do we try a Gomez/Fabinho or Matip/ Fabinho combo or go with a Gomez/Matip more natural but yet untried pairing ?
I think it will depend if Thiago is fit, if he plays I think Fab will play with Matip with a midfield trio of Hendo, Thiago and either Naby or Gini, if Thiago is out I'd play Gomez/Matip with Hendo, Fabinho & Keita, and a top three of Mo, Mane & Bobby,
Trent Matip Fabinho Robbo
Hendo Thiago Gini
Salah Bobby Mane
Bench; Kelleher, Gomez, Milner, Naby,
Jota, Jones, Origi.
Think we'll see something like this assuming Thiago makes it, Matip over Gomez gives us slightly more experience and is more assure imo, Fabinho played well there V Chavs so no reason he can't again this time, we all hope Thiago plays but it's doubtful, anyhoo, I think we'll be to strong for them whoever plays, their a decent side but no where near our quality, if we play anywhere near our best I don't see anything other than a convincing victory for the Redmen.
