Not sure what to expect here. All I would say is that international breaks are as disruptive for all clubs. Hoping for a positive performance

Doubt he will start Bailey. Hope to see him at some stage during the match but not holding my breath.

I played it out on Fifa 22. We take the lead after 70 mins through Traore, they equalise in injury time through Jimenez. Sounds about right.

Their front two have hit the ground running in their partnership unlike ours, albeit against weak opposition in Watford and Newcastle.
I really would ditch 352 for this game, i wouldnt necessary drop Ings, but would play 3 attacksrs nonetheless.
I think he’ll play Martinez unless he absolutely cant

Martinez
Cash
Konsa
Mings
Targett

Nakamba
McGinn
Ramsey

Ings
Watkins
Buendia

Bailey to come off the bench, play left wing half back and smash one in the top corner.

A scrappy 2-1 to us

Not sure why but I just have a gut feeling that this has 1-1 written all over it.

Don't think Luiz and Martinez will make it back in time, perhaps the bench if they get in on Saturday morning but I wouldn't risk it so will be changes in midfield. Buendia certain to start and probably Nakamba aswell. Axel will likely come in if 5-3-2 is kept aswell.

Is Jimenez playing for Mexico? They have a game early hours tonight so he likely won't feature although the new Korean lad scored some decent goals already.

Think this has the feel of a 1-1 to me. Usually tight games with them and they've actually played well under the new manager compared to last season.

It was 3 this morning Mexico played, and Jimenez played the last half hour.

Ah right, thought they were playing tonight with all the South American matches.

Guess he'll be o.k to start then.
