I'd go:

Emi

Cash Carlos Lenglet Digne

Tielemans Dendoncker Luiz Ramsey

Diaby Duran

This is the team Iíd start with. With Kamara, McGinn, Zaniolo getting some minutes. Im not sure i see Chambers playing again for us, think heíll be sold or loaned out in January.

I think Chambers is unlikely too, but it might depend on how Konsa and Carlos are after this past week. Carlos is usually paired with Lenglet but he's played 2 massive games for us this week.

Yeah, but Carlos doesn't run around much. Not his style. Looks uncouth, that type of thing.

He also hasn't played as much up to this week as others have, although he has played the full 90 minutes in the last 4 league games.

We should make a decent amount of changes. We have more than enough as a squad to get a point at the worst team in the group. Give some players a little breather ahead of the Christmas league and cup program.

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

Itís where we want to be and if we are going to continue to do well then itís something we are going to have to get used to.  Luckily we have a manager who is very experienced in dealing with that workload and the planning it takes.

Luiz is a shoe in he's got the next game off in the league.  Zaniolo will get a start, this and the Boro game are his last chance saloons.  Bailey rested, Watkins looks, understandablt, a bit tired and we need minutes in Duran if he's to make the step up.  Olsen in goal, Cash, Moreno and Ramsey...

Olsen,
Cash,
Carlos,
Lenglet,
Moreno,
Luiz,
Dendoncker,
McGinn,
Zaniolo,
Duran,
Ramsey.

Legia Warsaw have to win and we have to lose.  If that happens then I don't think we will be able to be separated on head-to-head criteria, so it will then go to overall group goal difference.  We are currently 3 goals ahead, so they would need to turn that around to finish above us.  If that finishes level, then it goes to goals scored in the group and we are currently 3 goals ahead of them in that as well.

Almost impossible but the sort of thing Spurs would do.

If, at the final whistle of Fulham away last season, someone had told me that 14 months later we'd be wondering which players to rest in our final Conference League group game as we needed to keep everyone fresh for our title challenge...

I'd have had them sectioned.

😂 This post is beautiful. What a season this is.
