      So this is the beginning of Fab playing CB with Gomez or Matip.

      HEY! I called it with Curtis starting. Seize the day, young man.

      We're allowed 12 subs but are naming 10, including two goalkeepers!  :)

      Cain is an attacking midfielder and Jaros is a goalkeeper. We have two of those on the bench.

      Limited options tonight, something must be up with Hendo? Would have thought he was nailed on for the midfield with Fabinho having to drop back. Hope Jones can take his chance.

      Cain and Jaros what position are they please? Thanks

      Cain's an attacking midfielder, think Jaros is a keeper which is a bit strange as we'll have two on the bench.

      Anyone know why Phillips and Koumetio aren't allowed to be registered in our squad for this competition?

      Out injured are Alisson, Virgil, Matip, Tsimikas, Thiago and Oxlade-Chamberlin.

      Surprised with the midfield but interesting. I think Jones will take his chance and impress.

      A it worried about the midfield, Back 4 ok, great up top, keeper give me the jitters, just hope we can play as a unit in the middle, and not as individuals. Jürgen must have faith in them. They played together before in a top game ?
      fingers crossed here. be glad of a draw, but sticking with my 1;2 prediction. Too late to change it now anyway, so lets hope its a good omen.  ;D

      Few surprises in particular the bench, when was the last time we had two sub keepers?

      I'm confident,  Jürgen is the best Manager on the planet,  he trusts his players and he trusts his instincts,  Fab at the back is no surprise,  Jones in is, Hendo on the bench to me is tactical and Will probably swap with Millie at some point,  the bench is interesting,  a couple of new faces there, whether they get minutes on remains to be seen,  but i just think with the long season we have Jürgen is rotating early and testing what's available from the ressies, great opportunity for the young lads to impress given the opportunity.

      1-2 Redmen

      “Curtis Jones is good enough. That’s it. But also the situation of course. We have a few problems so we have to make sure we can start, and how we can finish the game. So that’s the reason. He’s good enough. That’s why he plays." - Jürgen on BT.

      4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 with Jones in CAM? I’d love to see Jones given the licence to totally play forward thinking, and leave Gini and Milner to watch the back.

      You worry too much, have faith in our squad and have faith in Jürgen, he sees & works with the lads every day,  believe, and stop being so negative  !

      Not the midfield I was expecting.  Don't think that was in anyone's pre-match team.
