We play at Manchester City in the late game tomorrow in the Premier League and this – on paper at least – will be our toughest league fixture of the season.
It seems certain that Rafa will again play five at the back, and with Jamaal Lascelles likely still out injured, the back five will be unchanged from the Chelsea game.
Yedlin Schar Fernandez Clark Dummett
Yedlin and Dummett got a rest in the League Cup at Nottingham Forest on Wednesday night, but this will be the third game in 8 days for the other three players.
But after the game, they have two weeks until we take on Arsenal at home.
Nobody expects us to get anything out of this game tomorrow, so we have nothing to lose.
Fabian Schar – 3rd game in 8 days tomorrow?
That’s probably the best way to look at it – but expect more criticism from those expert pundits if we lose.
And just ignore it – it means nothing – that’s what they do.
Let’s all stick together like last season and support Rafa and the players.
