Lots of speculation that Hendo & Fabinho will form yet another cb partnership, can’t see it myself irrespective of whether Thiago starts or not, in my honest opinion Hendo is better served in a more forward role rather than going back, Vestergard is out for them so the aerial threat has diminish somewhat, for this reason I doubt Jürgen would weaken his midfield so soon after retaining some much needed strength & creativity,
Saints despite their inconsistency still remain a major hurdle and can deliver a kick in the nads if in the mood, so we need to be on it from the off, there is absolutely no room for complacency whatsoever or we could pay for it,
At the moment without Virgil, without Joe we need to field our strongest possible side, and apart from Matip and Jota I think it is this...........
Trent Rhys Fabinho Robbo
Hendo Thiago Gini
Salah Bobby Mane
I can see there been plenty of goals, and lots of nervy bits here & there, in the end though if we’re at it I can see us grabbing the win.
