They live in windmills
and mince around in clogs.
They don't have any manners
They don't say 'thanks' or 'please'
all they eat is tulips
and stinking gouda cheese...

Id go with as strong a team as possible, whats the point of qualifying for European comps otherwise? Would start Torres if even 90% fit. Konsa will hardly be as poor again. Seems like only a couple of selection decisions really, Digne or Moreno and Tielemans or Diaby. Tielemans has done very little over last three games so maybe reward Diaby for his game winning contribution on Saturday. Big game to put Tim in for but I dont see many alternatives. He should be ok next to Luiz anyway. No way to Zaniolo or Rogers from the start.

-----------Martinez
Cash, Konsa, Torres, Digne
McGinn, Iroegbunam, Luiz, Bailey
-------Diaby, Watkins

Sold out now over there, 55k. Only about half a dozen left at VP, apart from LG and TV.

I'd keep Torres for Sunday. Lenglet has done pretty well as a 4th or 5th choice.

Need a performance from Tielemans and Diaby

Every time we have this debate about how strong the team should be and every time Unai goes with a pretty strong starting 11

so against Ajax in the last 16 of a European competition he isnt going to change now, posters can say what they like which is fair enough everyone has an opinion but Emery will put out a very strong team to win the game, thats what will happen, and i agree with him not that he's asking for my consent

Surely the four subs from Sunday are likely to start and that's why the substitution occurred so late?

Diaby and Pau Torres were summer signings and they should be starting a game like this.
1-3 Villa.

Id put Digne in at left back, leave Lenglet in, play a midfield 3 of McGinn, Luiz and Tielemans and a front 3 of Watkins, Bailey and Diaby.
If we weaken the team we just may find ourselves chasing the tie in the second leg.

Diaby,McGinn and Zaniolo are at risk of being suspended for second leg If booked so maybe McGinn in particular could be held back for Sunday V Spurs.

Are they? Aren't yellow cards reset for the knockout stages?

Yellow cards dont get wiped out until after the quarter finals.
