Bit more confident about this after last night's first half, although they'll obviously be a tougher opposition.

I'd be telling fibs if I said I was looking forward to this game

I'm dreading it to be honest

This is a big test. If our defence plays to their potential it could be very interesting indeed.. Our extra competitive games might play to our advantage against their new defence. Wayne should be even more motivated for this (if that is possible).

The team is definitely starting to gel. Maybe this game is a bit early for us, but if we play like we did in the first half against Hajduk, and can do it for the 90 minutes; we could do OK. I've gone for a 2-2 draw in the prediction league. I don't like predicting Everton losses, so a draw was the next best thing. I could see us getting something from this. City didn't set the world on fire when they played against Brighton.  :)

 Be surprised if it not 3 at the back.

Pickford
Keane Williams Jagielka
Davies Schneiderlin Gana Baines
Rooney
DCL Sandro

Maybe Rooney up front and Sigurdsson in for Sandro? Depending on fitness

If we have 3 at the back Pickford might think hes back at Sunderland with all the shots raining down on him. Seems to be Koemans favoured option but it never seems to work

*Sandro if he is fit obviously

Klassen to do his normal shift and Sigurdsson to replace him after an hour


Simply simply lovely

Dreading it, total write off this for me.

Get through it without a total bumming and move on.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

It's more the three at the back that was making me nervous.

I think three at the back would be a disaster. They post a front three so it would be one each, and ours are slow. I'd post three conservative midfielders in front of the back four then hope or front three come up with something!

This has to be the way forward. Same team as started last night actually, with maybe Lookman for Mirallas/Sandro.
