      I’m a raging pessimist….. but the midfield concerns me.

      Me too, feels very lightweight for this game.

      Not confident about this at all.

      Some surprises with our team, but they're playing with four attackers who don't defend or press, Bruno, Rashford, Greenwood and Ronaldo. They're committing suicide.

      Curve ball on the selection. No Mane and Konate thrown in having hardly played? Very surprising, but in Jürgen I trust! COYR!

      Jota choice I think is a secret tactic to keep their Pe teacher thinking. Matip and VVD let in some goals so Konate is being bedded in.

      Odd lineup. I thought we learned our lesson with the Milner, Keira, Hendo midfield. Have a feeling this could be the start of Konate’s rise to prominence. Just a feeling. No Fab is a blow,  it sure about that and no way I’m not starting Mane over Jota. But I’m not the boss so there’s that.

      Yea, starting Mane on the bench is a head scratch, the man is a warrior and built for these games, and he's actually recovered form.

      I guess we'll see how Diogo does, maybe Jürgen feels tactically he has an edge somehow with him, or Mane has a knock, hard to know...

      Big game for Konate very little match practice don't even think he played in international  break . Must have impressed though and hope he storms it

      Don't think he has much choice. Like who on the bench would he start ahead of him. Only Jones imho, and I guess Jürgen felt it was too soon after coming back from injury to start him.

      Fab and Tiago not even making the bench. 😳

      Mane dropped to the bench.
      Mancs probably got a lift from that 😬

      Unless of course Jota has shown something special in training.
      Can’t think of snything better that Mane on form to be fair.
      Hope jurgens got this one right 😬

      Jürgen works with all the players every single day, he will make the right choices. He sees things that we don't.

      Fab big miss however, look forward to seeing the “ beast” that is Konate.He will cement his place in the starting 11, of that I’m sure.Coyr.

      Bit of a mad one on the selection. Seems crazy to leave Matip out as I think he's been our best defender so far this season! Can only imagine he's thrown Konate in to deal with their pace

      Would rather Jones over Keita and would probably started Mane too (although it is a nice feeling to know we've got a truly world class option on the bench)

      Anyway, who gives a f**k? These are sh*te. Up the reds!

      Thiago wasn't serious or long term according to jurgen yet where is he? If fab has a knee injury I doubt we will see him for the foreseeable as it seems when our players are injured it takes a while for them to get back.

      After this midfields poor display in the week, I’m not confident. Fab is a huge miss.

      Need Salah to keep his fine run of goals going and Jota to regain his composure.

      No shock the defence has changed, it had been letting in a lot of goals so good to try a different pairing.

      I see 4 goalscorers/ match winners there ... outside of salah I'm struggling to see who is going to win it for us.

      With next to no creativity in midfield I'm hoping we can use the full backs well today. But again without fabinho there to cover for them I'm worried. This is why I would have gone 4231 and had milner and hendo anchored in front. This midfield in a 433 didn't function in Madrid and offered little protection to the back 4. Hoping they are better today.

      Big difference, Fab was able to play on, Thiago wasn’t. Don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill.
