Reckon Jürgen will start a lot of the squad players, Neco, Kelleher, Williams along with Jones, Milner, Minamino, AOC, maybe Shaq .. whether he sprinkles in maybe 2 or 3 from Hendo/Mane/Bob/Fab/etc remains to be seen.
After complaining so much about games coming close together, players not getting enough of a break - combined with injuries - he'd really contradict himself be playing more that 2 or 3 of the first choice XI against Villa.
Would like a Cup run, but the focus has to be the PL and the CL. And with the injuries we have right now, even those are a stretch.
Could argue, all the more reason we should have a real go in this Cup - but not sure Jürgen will see it that way.
