Spuds away, one of the toughest to get anything from, Maureen hates us meaning he’ll have added impetus to f**k us over, we are weaker than we would normally be so another filip for that c**t, to me there are four stand out players who will give us most trouble, Kane, Son, Holjberg, Dembele, if we can combat those 4 we will have a decent chance,
Milner in for Trent, nah, he’d get ripped to f**k by Son, we need pace so Trent in at RB, Matip will play also having missed the Munts game, we will need his height for set pieces, Rhys didn’t work next to Fabinho and was clearly out of his depth,so I’m putting Phillips in and here’s why, he’s good in the air and is more adept than Rhys, it’s not ideal but I’d rather it be him than Rhys, the rest pick themselves, but i am tempted to swap Bobby for Taki.
Trent Matip Phillips Robbo
Salah Taki Mane
Bench; Kelleher, Milner, AOC, Bobby, Shaqiri, Jones, Divock
In games like these I want Fabinho protecting, if Hendo was fit he’d be in too, probably for Gini, Keita another option if fit, this is what is hurting us, not having the big fella obviously but our midfield is weakened playing Fab at CB, Trent’s game has also suffered without Virgil and without Hendo, who covers from him going forward, it is a gamble playing Phillips but no more so than Rhys at the toilet, on their day Spuds could rip us a new one, especially in central areas, so we need to be competitive in there hence Fabinho in to break up play and keeping tabs on that cheating c**t Kane.
