We won't see wholesale changes. Moyes will probably give Pienaar a break if his knee has still got that support strap on it (couldn't tell if he did from today's stream). I'd expect to see Saha, Howard and Fellaini benched too. The only youngsters I can see starting are Coleman, Baxter, Agard and Duffy. Yakubu and Nash should be given run outs too.



So, something like this:

-----------------Nash------------
Coleman---Hibbert--Duffy---Baines
Baxter---Rodwell---Cahill---Billy
---------Agard----Yakubu-----

Cahill will be fine as he missed out today, Billy and Baines will play because Moyes doesn't have anyone to play instead of Baines, and Billy will start because Europe is slower and he needs to learn how we play still. Hibbert to start also as we have no one else.


I like the look of this, im a big fan of a good CB so id like to see Duffy get a game and absolutely give Pienaar a rest. Would be nice to see Agards pace and hunger paired with Yakubu's natural instinct and experience.

I think thats a solid line up and one I could see Moyes going for. I might be tempted to play Neill instead of Hibbert though as I think he still needs to work on his fitness like the Yak.

Just a quick one, are Cahill and Hibbert suspended?

That would be news to me. Cahill has served his one game (English-only) ban. Hibbert got a red in Europe, but that was ages ago, so I think he can play.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

They both picked up second group stage yellows against AEK.

I didn't realise that 2 yellows constituted a ban in Europe. Seems harsh. Plus, on the OS under suspensions it says the current suspension by Cahill means his next available game is in Europe on thursday, but then maybe the OS is wrong (Wouldn't be the first time, I guess).

I would just play a mixture of young players and first team players. Give Coleman, Baxter, Duffy and Agard a run out. I think Billy should play so he gets more used to the way we play and he may be more familiar with the way the Belarussians play so he'll know how to get past them. I would rest Saha and maybe give Yakubu 90 minutes.

Please god don't let Moyes put out Pienaar, Saha or any other good player who has been suffering with injuries. Other than that I'm not bothered who Moyes puts out, truth be told.

top flight for a long time


We only need a 10 goal turnaround to finish top  :whistle: and get an easier tie in the knockout stages.

I'd pretty much agree with that. Maybe Fellaini in for Cahill just to protect him as he is on 2 yellows.

Not sure who will replace Neill; Heitinga & Jo in the squad, other than Cahill. Probably Wallace & ???. Rumour on another board Vaughan & Osman back in training today - but I can't see either being involved. Who would be the next kid to fill a spot on the bench?

I don't want wholesale changes, we have found a bit of form so want players to keep playing.

I'd go with

                               Howard

Coleman         Hibbert         Duffy        Baines

Baxter           Rodwell          Feliani      Bily

                            Cahill

                               Yak

Nice and safe and giving a few a decent amount of mins in action.
