So we have 3 big games coming up this month in a huge week that will ultimately shape how successful this season is. Iím not sure we are in a position to play the same 11 on the bounce after Spurs and Liverpool there may not be enough left in the tank against Sunderland which has to be the biggest game of the 3. The good news is we donít have to leave the city or travel which can affect recovery times to a certain extent. However Moyes needs to get his selections spot on and juggle his pack or we will be left with that familiar taste of what might have been.
The sacrificial lamb for me has to be the spurs game. Give the big boys a rest then Iím sure we can handle the shite and Sunderland in a 5 day stretch. Its unfortunate because I believe we can beat spurs but I would take a bore draw and a point any day.
Spurs: Second string
Liverpool: Full strength
Sunderland: Full strength
We all know the best 11 at the moment = the team that battered chelski. The spurs game would be a good chance to bring ossie, jags and rodwell into the first 11
Spurs team: Howard, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Neville, Rodwell, Coleman, Osman, Barkley, Drenthe, Jelavic
Liverpool/Sunderland team: Howard, Heitinga, Distin, Hibbert, Baines, Fellaini, Neville, Pienaar(liv)/Drenthe (safc), Coleman, Cahill, Straq
