The first year we went there and really stopped them from playing; although we probably should have scored more than the 2-0 win.
Last year was a more open and probably should have finished about 8-3.
Think it will be a bit tighter this year with Laudrup having come up against us twice now. They were very respectful of us in last year's GP game; doubling up their right backs against our left hand side.
I hope they do that again, as we'll tear them apart if they do. Pienaar is playing well, and we all know what Oviedo has done after getting the chance. But we're so much more well-balanced this season, with Coleman and Mirallas very good (if perhaps prone to a spot of inconsistency) down the right, and a very solid platform with McCarthy and Barry sitting deeper giving Barkley room to get forward and create.
They've had a rough string of injuries: Vorm and Dyer are out, Britton and Chico Flores are questionable, and Michu/Bony are just coming back. With Rangel suspended, they could be missing half of their preferred XI. Also, they brought Jazz Richards back from his loan at Huddersfield, and he's apparently in contention to start at RB over Tiendalli. Can't see it myself as he only featured 9 times in 3 months for Huddersfield, though.
