I dislike monday night kick off's .
The weekend is not quite the same when everyone else played plays and we dont.

Tough game ahead of us. Chelsea have a decent home record and have a point to prove following the city thrashing.
Martial and jessie are out. Imo we will miss jessie more than the very inconsistent martial .
So who do we all think will start.
I think our midfield will stay as the usual 3 ( or should i say the only 3)
I hope the back 4 contains dalot. i'd like to see bailly and lindelof play together again.

Lukaku right rash left and sanchez through the middle is a possible combination.
At least our injuries are in an area where we have cover.

Chong, rashford and lukaku. Greenwood on the bench and Sanchez on the sofa watching on tv.

I can understand that point of view mort. Sanchez has been nothing short of awful but with martial out he might get a run of games in a more attacking system in a bid to recapture some form. I know its a long shot but we are not blessed with experienced options.
I don't think ole will throw kids into this game but i could well be wrong.

I like your thought Ken.
Rashford and Lukaku, both have pace to play on the wing or as an inside forward.

It is better that Sanchez centrally, mostly near the penalty box. His ball control and finishing is still good in tight areas.
It is while trying to dribble where he loses possession.

Chong or Gomez can be brought on in the second half so that we can ease them in gradually.

I really don’t understand how Sanchez is anywhere near the team, he continually stinks the place out. We all want him to play well but just willing it to happen isn’t working. I’d rather play Rashford, Lukaku and Gomez.

15 Feb 2019 09:16:15
I get that Ken. But as AJH says he's been awful and just hoping he suddenly comes good isn't enough. Maybe its time to try someone else. Give a young guy like Gomes or Chong a go instead. See if they're able to seize the chance like Rashford did.

15 Feb 2019 09:49:19
I hear you ajh and mort. As i say i don't think he will throw them in to this game.
Id be delighted if he did. If we had won on tuesday it might have been more likely.

Could do 3-5-2, Lindelof smalling bailly

Dalot, herrera, matic, pogba, shaw

Lukaku rashford

Smalling and lukaku offers a bit more height and threat from corners, I like dalots crossing but his defensive side needs work so playing 3 at the back offers a bit more cover.

Would like to see chong and gomez on the bench, greenwood looks scary good but I want to hold him back for just a bit longer maybe last game or 2 of the season if they are dead rubbers.

15 Feb 2019 19:56:01
I don't think we're going to have the luxury of dead rubbers, mate. Unless it all goes t*ts up.

15 Feb 2019 21:44:45
I was thinking the same nou. Squeaky bum time i reckon.

15 Feb 2019 22:21:26
We won't know till much closer the time. We could be 4th with a 4 point gap to 5th or 5th with a 4 point gap to 4th or any other scenario with a game to go.

Greenwood looks the most promising player since 92. I want to do everything we can to make sure he progresses smoothly. There are people far more qualified than me to say when the times right so if its felt its best that he doesn't play this season I am fine with that no matter how much I want to see him play is the point I want to make.
