End of a tough week.

I'd take a draw from this, I know Man City's not far away but three hard away games in a week is a lot even this early in the season. It would be nice to go into the break undefeated as well.

Anything we get from this will be a massive bonus. I don't mean that in a 'small-time club scrapping for anything' way, like in the past. I mean more in terms of playing City, Split and Chelsea away in 6 days. Any team in the league would find that taxing.

I'm expecting defeat, and anything other than that will be a real achievement.

I think we can take at least a point, It will be a tough test though. Hard week of fixtures out the way, we should have more of the competitive edge over them as we've now played 4 europa games and 2 league games.

Going to this one and looking forward to it.

So this means we will loose.

We may well be loose but hopefully we can grind out a point

Holgate.                      Baines

       Besic Gana Sigurdsson

           Calvert-Lewin Rooney

Something like this maybe?think we will be trying to keep it tight and nick a point. All of a sudden Dominic Calvert-Lewin seems essential to our starting line up. He works so hard for the team
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Hopefully Gary Cahill gets sent off and we do a Burnley.

Isn't Cahill still banned?

Just checked and Cahill is still suspended.

Hazard hasn't played yet this season and is still rated unlikely to start. Take out Costa and Matic as well and this can't possibly be as bad as last season - the problem is that if it's half as bad, we're still in trouble.

Would probably prefer Davies to start ahead of Besic but the rest of Sir Stealth's team look nailed on.

Best I can say is perhaps they will be overconfident after winning "at" Spurs last weekend.

Sky are showing West Brom V Stoke which kicks off at the same time. Our game should kick off later

Yep, its Anfield though

There's no reason why we have an earlier kick off, its stupid, yes I know Spurs are at Wembley on same day, but that shouldn't make any difference
