We absolutely shit ourselves in this fixture last season.

We should atleast have a better game plan this time.

They will still win, best team in Europe. Thankfully the most tolerable Champions League team in Europe aswell.

Lets face it, they have walked the league this season.
As reigning champions, we will put 7 (seven) past them next season.

I think we might just sneak it 1 0 EMI to play a blinder Davis to come off the bench and score, you just never know.

We played o.k up there. Remember it was 0-0 up to 80th minute before the scandal of the first goal and this was coming straight back off the covid break with minimal training so I don't see it as a beat down.

Will probably go same way as Spurs game though. We'll be competitive at 0-0 and then lose our way falling behind.

Not sure what we'll do out wide as Traore surely played his way out of a start after the abysmal Liverpool performance. Him and El Ghazi only senior options we have but it looks uninspiring currently either side of Ollie.

Would prefer to pack the midfield and push McGinn up close to Ollie.

I do wonder whether a random change to 3-5-2 might be beneficial for a game like this but no idea who the third CB would be. That's the way to start Davis anyway to give us a bit more presence up there.

Pep must have been shitting himself about playing us next Wednesday as he only put out his second string in an FA Cup semi final. Obviously, he will put out his strongest team against us.

We were good up there, despite losing, but then we were playing well at the time. Weíre largely still out of form as we have been for months. They didnít play well yesterday but Chelsea are better than us, I also thought they did play really well against Dortmund. Canít see us causing them too many problems attacking wise if smith stick to the tried and tested. On that I really would like to see Davis in now, with Trez and Jack out there are limited options wide and with Barkley I think likely to be bombed out, it really does shout out time to change it up. I think weíll lose but would like to see this team.

Martinez
Cash
Konsa
Mings
Targett
Luiz
McGinn
Ramsey
Watkins
Davis
Traore

Might be nice to try something different once in a while.
