Listen we all want width in the side mate but
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.

I wish we would go 4-4-2, I think it would suit our squad too. Tried and trusted for years and everyone should know their job.

I'm just gonna say we can't set up like we did against Leicester. I know that's pretty obvious, but we're up against loads of counter attacking pace. I'm fully expecting a goal against like the first goal Leicester scored.

I hate to say it, but we really have to set up defensively for this one. Two holding mids who stay in position with a back four. Palace may be dead last but they have a certain style of play that can rip our back end apart if we're not careful.

Realistically I'd be happy with a draw. Sad times, but that's reality.

Massive game this one. We get beat and we are back to square one with a damaged ego. If we win, we could put a run together and before you know it we will be in the top 10.

Need to build on last week here, draw would be decent. Worried about set pieces against us though, we're shit in the air at the moment.

I don't think this is a game for Kenny. Palace will get the ball out wide to Zaha get him one on one with him. For this reason, we need to play it very tight in the game, otherwise we will lose,which is why i think Holgate has a better chance. With Palace, if you stop the wingers, you stop the goals, as they won't score from any other way. From what i have seen of Vlasic, he just isn't great at tracking back and doing his defensive work, which won't do in this game.

I would go with this:

           Pickford
Holgate Keane Jags Baines
      Gana Bani Davies
Lennon              Sigurdsson
               DCL

A workaholic team with bags of energy to scrap a win.

I went to their game away at Spurs with a mate last week, and they really should have won that game as Spurs just didn't turn up.

One thing I noticed is that whilst they have width and pace going forward, they defend incredibly narrow. If we had anybody at that game then they'll have noted how much space Spurs fullbacks got in the final third.

I'd like to see us go 5 at the back and mirror what Spurs did to them, something like:

                        Pickford
       Holgate     Keane     Jagielka
Kenny                                      Baines
         Banningeme Gueye Davies
                 Rooney   Niasse

It's funny, I'm just as worried about set pieces for us.

Kenny had the best defensive stats in the league last weekend.

Genuinely interested - by what measures?

Good to see. I really like Kenny, but I still think this is a game to take him out of the line of fire. Zaha is the most fouled player in the league for a reason, and we need a player with a little more experience in there.

Kenny in the home games is a great option, but away from home he needs to be protected.
