I feel jags will be back for this one. Don't know if sandro will be fit so toss up with Rooney or DCL up front. Mirallas is running out of time to show he has a future with sigurdsson waiting in the wings n onyekuru n bolassie to come in next season  .

Really don't get the Williams shouts, much rather have Keane and Jagielka.

Would also go with Gueye, Schneiderlin and Davies in a narrow 3 with Lookman and maybe Lennon as wide players, dropping into a 5 when City have the ball and using their pace to drag defenders wide and out of position when we have the ball

I like 3-4-3 as a system but you have to have the right players if you dont and it goes wrong it can be a nightmare whereas much more margin for error positionally in a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3.

I think in an ideal world you need wide centre halves who are comfortable moving forward and can defend in wide areas and understand how to attack as a full back. The wing backs need to be able to defend to a decent level but more important to be able to attack as they provide most of the width for the system.

Baines should be good as a wing back but hardly ever played well there. His starting positions are too deep and he isnt someone who can attack when isolated because he cant dribble past defenders he needs people to work with. Coleman can do it but not around, I'd imagine Martina would play there if we do it at least he seems to have good energy for the role and willing to put a cross in.

But the wide centre halves as we saw against Stoke didnt work. Keane wasnt willing enough to move into the wide area or move into their half past the midfield. Jags is ok but likewise didnt look comfortable moving into the left back area. You might get away with it with one wide centre half not being comfortable or doing it but cant have neither as you literally end up with 3 narrow centre backs. Spurs when they play it have Dier and Verthongen as the wide centre backs and both can move forward and give additional options when attacking.

Tomorrow it could not be as big an issue from an attacking perspective because they will be mainly defending but I just feel we dont have the natural players for the system available so better off going 4 at the back. I prefer Jags still to williams, but williams is at his best when it is a tight defensive shape and he defends the box so from a tactical perspective it might be a game which suits his strengths rather than him being isolated and exposed for lack of mobility.

I do agree with all that and I'd worry about Williams being isolated with the ball when we're trying to play out, so in a perfect world we'd have one deep block defender in the middle and two comfortable Cb's out wide I guess, but we don't have the personell.

But tomorrow's going to be more about soaking up their pressure and hitting balls into the channels than anything else I think.

Big problem with that is it takes away about 90% of Schneiderlin's game by bypassing the midfield. He becomes a tackler who shows for the ball under pressure.

I hope Gana gets a good night's sleep tonight.  He'll need it.  Not the time to experiment with new pillows.

                                                           MARTINA    KEANE          WILLIAMS     BAINES

I'd rather we lines up with a full team, unless you're expecting someone to get sent off?
