8pm tomorrow

Can't even make too many changes because we have no options. Expect a beating here. I'd give Tosun a start for a laugh.

Pickford/Olsen
Coleman Mina Keane Godfrey
Doucoure Davies Gomes
Iwobi Tosun Bernard

I wouldn't really "expect" a beating here.

Maybe on paper.

But they haven't been their usual self for a while now, they have also only played yesterday like us.

Jesus and Walker out for them with Covid.

HOPEFULLY we have James back for this one with maybe one other.

Is Richy out of this also?

If not then same tactics, they have enough attacking talent but keep it compact and frustrate.

A loss wouldn't upset me because on their day they are still a top team but what a statement a win would be here.

There could be something in this for us if we go with the 4 CB low block approach.

We can definitely sting them on set plays and counterattacks.

With that said, it's a big ask to keep them from scoring given how fucked our first choice players are at this point.

Might get a point with two keepers.

Be amazing we somehow managed to win this!

I think this is a freebie. Get anything out of it is a bonus and we've done well to give ourselves some leeway.

Think we'll see some rested for this.

Low block, keep them out, hope to hit them with a set piece. Ugly but hopefully effective.

This is a free hit. Theres 2 teams in the league you dont expect to get anything from because of the level of their squad. One of them is that shower of shit over there, the other is City.

A draw would be brilliant, a win and we're on cloud nine. A defeat is most likely but that wouldn't knock our confidence.

It's still a big ask but this isn't the City of a few years ago, if we play to our strengths we should push them hard. Only concern is with Pickford as they have the ability to strike from distance

Ancelotti press conference for Sheff Utd he said James was out for City as well.

Richy out for consussion protocol, which is 7 days so includes the City game.

Id rest as many as we can but that isn't a lot with our squad.

Dom looked knackered mid week nevermind yesterday. He was bend double when the goal went in and just about managed a celebration.

Tosun might have to start 😂

Branthwaite with Keane in the middle? He was doing really well before his injury.

Coleman right back with Holgate in the middle to rest Doucoure?

Admittedly these changes do just forfeit any chance of points..

I'm with you on this tbh, as dirty as it makes me feel I just don't give a shit about this game and would happily field a weak team so players can have a rest.

The idea of DCL etc running themselves in to the ground again when likely we'll get beat anyway just seems futile.

Mostly the same guys have been running around for 450 minutes in the past 15 days. We're probably gonna get outshot by something like 22-4.

Think we can get something from this with the same approach as the other big games recently.

City are a lot flatter than they were a couple of seasons ago.

Wouldn't be shocked to see us win or draw this, if we execute the gameplan well and get the first goal.
