In before the "huge" shout.

Think this might be quite a tough game, Hasenhuttl seems to have steadied the ship a little with a couple of decent results against Chelsea and Leicester.

They need the points more than us. Ultimately that will be the deciding factor.

Think we’ll win this. They’re much improved but they’ll play for a win at home and I think our quality will eventually show. Maybe 1-0 or 2-1 to us I think

Quality manager is Ralph. Got them pressing high and hard and they have plenty of quality in and around the first eleven.

Would like to win of course, but can see this being a struggle.

Three centre backs, so Mina in, plus Sigurdsson

DCL and Lookman on bench

0-0

Don't really know what to expect in this, if we play to our best we'll win, will we though? Probably not.

They've improved a little under the new manager

We really need to win this to get back towards 7th, our record there is terrible over the last decade or so. Austin is suspended I think? He usually scores against us.

------------Pickford
Coleman Zouma Keane Digne
--------------Gana
-------Gomes Sigurdsson
--Lookman Richarlison Bernard

* Sigurdsson needs to come deep, and get more involved in games, I think DCL is better from the bench, and richarlison caused Bournemouth some problems with his pace and persistence, id persist with him upfront.

Think this game screams 1-1. Hope they attack us and we can break, we should be beating them, but just not overly confident we will.

He’s got his lads fired up like.

We need to get a grip of this early doors or their confidence will grow and ours will inevitably diminish.

Hassenhüttl seems to be good at making his teams a pain in the ass to play against. This is a good article with some bits about his defensive approach at Leipzig (defending deeper, not pressuring the ball until it reaches the midfield):

https://www.sbnation.com/soccer/2016/12/15/13924976/rb-leipzig-bundesliga-title-naby-keita

I'd like to see more of that from us, frankly.

I know the idea of a high press is really popular right now because so many top sides play that way but it's a lot of work to implement it (in terms of coaching and getting the right players) and if you're not good at it (e.g. us), it can leave you badly exposed at the back.

A mid-block might not sound as sexy but it's probably the more realistic and more effective option for this group of players. All it does is trade high-risk, high-reward pressing opportunities further up the pitch (which for us are high-risk, no-reward because we never win the ball back in or near the opponent's third) for more defensive solidity and a deeper starting position for any potential counterattacks (which, who cares? Imagine what would happen if we got the likes of Bernard, Richarlison, Lookman, and Walcott on the ball with space ahead of them more often. Goals, plenty of them.)

Could see us playing this one on the counter. Think Ings will give us trouble but we will get one on the counter to give us the win
Are we there yet?
