I want us to focus on the next 3 league games.
I would leave as many as our first X1 at home was we can.

I doubt anyone will be left at home unless they're injured. I don't think we have a big enough squad to fill the bench unless majority of the team travels.
Critical we rest Watkins Mcginn Luiz Konsa Pau Digne Martinez.

So the likelihood:

McGinn said in his interview after the match that the players are getting two days off (Sunday Monday ) and that he hoped "Bosnia wouldn't be cold." That fully implies he's involved and likely starting as he does as Captain every Match.

And Emery said to give the players two days rest to enjoy themselves and the moment and then focus on Bosnia

I'd go:

Emi

Cash Carlos Lenglet Digne

Tielemans Dendoncker Luiz Ramsey

Diaby Duran
Normally I donít like changes at this scale but do agree with you. Luiz and Digne to be played only because they are suspended for Brentford game.

I think our European adventures this year has helped us as a team playing more games rather than hindered
I donít see it as a negative at all

McGinn mentioning Bosnia weather doesnít mean he will play but of course he will be there with the team.

Yes I agree. Our worst display was against Forest, after a full week of rest.

Torres doesn't usually start the European games, if he plays them at all, so I assume that will continue with Lenglet playing.

Carlos is usually a starter there too but has played a lot this week, but so has Konsa, so I don't know what the answer is there, unless Chambers gets a look in. Seems unlikely though.

Cash will start, and probably Digne, given Moreno will likely have to play the full game at Brentford.

Zaniolo and probably JJ are definite in midfield, I'd think. Donk, and maybe Luiz too given he's not playing Brentford. DurŠn instead of Watkins too. Diaby over Bailey.

I think we can still rest a fair few but most of them will still travel, even if they just sit wrapped in blankets all evening.

Olsen
Cash
Chambers
Lenglet
Digne
Zaniolo
Luiz
Donk
JJ
Diaby
DurŠn

That's a fairly well changed 11 but you can't fill a bench without using the ones we're hoping don't have to play.

He's played for us since then, hasn't he? He was in goal for the Legia game.

We do have the b squad who could do that. Saying that, there are not many of that team I have heard of apart from Chrisene and Kaden Young. I'm guessing Tim needed to be named in the main squad because of his age and wasn't.

Anyone who watches the youth regularly know if any of the other list are available (not on loan) and good enough to be given game time?
