I’d be very tempted to have Fab in front of the back 4 for this, although we do not man mark I would have him on Kane all night long, if Matip is fit I’d have him and Phillips as CB’s, Trent and Robbo providing the width to spread the play and by pass Sissoko & Holjberg, Hendo & Gini doing the donkey work in the middle, and the usual three amigos up top providing the goodies,
It all depends on Matip, if he’s oot, I’d play Fab & Phillips, with Hendo, Gini & Jones in front instead, for me this is a crucial game, a win would give us top spot on our own and a platform to build another unassailable lead, lose then we just carry on and build the pressure as time goes on, see if the Spudettes can handle the pressure, ultimately they will crack, I reckon there’ll be lots of bumps in the road before May, but I still make us favourites despite the injury list, where we are after the Xmas madness will be telling for sure.
Trent Matip Phillips Robbo
Another game where we miss out on Thiago, he would be perfect for this fixture, alas, we will just need to win it without him, and win it we will.
