      More than happy to have someone else start them, might change our luck.

      Right then my tactics for this, start very f**king fast and get a goal in the first few minutes, the longer this goes and if they should score first then we might be a bit fu**ed.

      I really hope this is the game our strike force regain their mojo, but no more slowly slowly approach, have at them, full on Thrash Death Metal mode!!

      Understatement to say this is of massive importance. We were not great against them at home, but we have not been great v anyone there lately. These might take some courage from our record v the bottom 6 and have a go a little.

      Ive said for a while now Id like to see some little tweek to the set up just to freshen things a bit for the lads but also as I feel opponents dont expect anything different from us so can set up to defend our game.. However I just dont see it.

      Not looking like we will have Fab again and I would imagine Alisson will get time off. Hendo gone and Kelleher I think still injured so Id say we will see

                                 Adrian
          Trent     Kabak     Philips   Robbo

                       Gini     Thiago  Jones

                     Mo       Bobby    Sadio

      Id love to see

                               Adrian
        Neco    Philips      Davies   Robbo

                        Thiago   Gini

             Trent                              Sadio

                          Mo     Bobby

      Hopefully a bit of time from Jota and Keita

      How about;

                               Adrian
        Neco    Philips   Kabak   Davies   Tsimikas

                        Thiago   Gini

             Trent                              Curtis

                          Mo     Sadio


      That then gives both fullbacks plenty of opportunity to join up with the attacks, would be a nightmare to defend against if several of them are making runs into the box, whilst we still have a solid defence in place.

      I want to see Naby start, in part because we need to take advantage of the valuable few days he's not hurt, but mostly because his skillset is very useful against bus-parking teams.

      Two CBs will play as looks like Fab out so one of either Davies or Phillips to play with Kabak not a massive fan of Phillips but might suit him with their CFs

      Sheff Utd are bottom of the table and will be relegated.
      Our home form has been dire, but we've decent away from home.

      So, cautiously optimistic :)

      Another tough game, Sheffield Utd are no mugs despite their form and Chris Wilder will try to exploit our many weaknesses.

      However, being the eternal optimist, am going for a 1-3 away win!

      Because Robbo looks in need of a rest, plus I don't see him in midfield.

      It seems our set appears to be a little fragile at the mo, and I don't really see the prospect of any changes. We just get weaker and weaker due to the ever increasing injury list, but are expected to play the same way that everyone has the answer to. Sit deep with 10 men then counter when we get impatient and push up too far, with little pace at the back.
      Cant see anything changing, but still hoping for a huge win.

      I feel like Davies is more used to playing against these types of sides then Kabak is, and Phillips is decent in the air which I think is needed.

                      Adrian
      Trent - Phillips - Davies - Robbo
                         Gini
                  Keita  -  Thiago
            Salah - Firmino - Mane

      I would insert Jota at the 60th minute instead of Firmino and Shaqiri instead of AOC at around the 70th minute.

      Whoever is selected for what could be a tricky away game, in another very difficult week, should treat it like a cup final. What's more players should be performing for their own pride, as well as the club, that they represent.

      Think he will be but don’t like the idea of it since it looks like he’s off in a few months.

      Should be Robbo for me.
