Sorry to bother you. Just that I hear there's a game of Football on tonight at Wembley after some 'unveiling ceremony'. Bloody cheek, clashing with Deadline Day. Jim White would spin in his grave if only someone would bump him off. Anyway...

All we need is Eriksen to have a good game - then we should win. Kane will finish 99% of any chances he gets.

One of the trickiest teams to play against Id suggest.

They aren't bad enough at the back to be confident of scoring if you really go at them, like Liverpool/Arsenal and are too good going forward to be too defensive.

I agree it's going to be a counter attacking performance needed but that will be exactly what they're thinking too.

Trippier v Martial/Rashford/Sanchez/Lingard makes me nervous.

I hope for Sanchez's sake it stays dry too

For the first time this season, I'm actually feeling disillusioned before a game. Mourinho is too sly and cunning, and I hold little hope that we have anything (besides Kane) to counter him and his team with. :(

I don't think we've lost to them at home since Fergie was manager in 2012 and we've beaten them at home the last two seasons. Wembley is a different 'home' of course but our performances against Dortmund, Liverpool and Real Madrid suggest we are capable of rising to it for the big occasions.

After Sanchez getting in the ref's ear from the 1st minute when we played the goons, getting the free kick, and everything else afterwards. I hope we have a strong ref.

None of this slow start rubbish either please, we'll play right into their hands. They'll just sit, wait for Dele to give the ball away, and spring. Would love us to replicate the game against Chelsea two years ago. Aggressive from the off, and not give a flying f**k about anyone.

They’re a different beast to Real, Liverpool and Dortmund. Not afraid to act the small club and sneak a result. The other clubs want to go toe to toe and try to dominate.
