Really fancy us against that Swansea team. Don't think they've got the pace to hurt us on the counter. They'll come out and play as well which suits us perfectly.
Very slow team and we should boss them in the middle, nowhere near enough goals in that team.

Would be very disappointed if we didn't beat them

The best thing about the Son/Eriksen/Lamela lineup is that Son isn't being shunted out on the right. He's just not as good there. His only league goal besides the one against Watford was from the left against Palace (engineered by Lamela and Eriksen).

I'd imagine Mason's being rested for West Ham...

Dembele to return for the NLD and take Son/Lamela's place.

Hopefully we can grab a few early goals and take off Kane/Dier/Eriksen today.

Not sure about starting Dier or Kane in this game, with WHam and Arse to play this week. Dier is 2 yellows from suspension.

Don't get me wrong, its a great line up, just rather save those 2 for later.

Can't believe how Leicester got away yesterday with a last minute goal as Norwich, IMHO, were the better team but just couldn't put their chances away. However their win should spur on our boys and I'm looking forward to a cracking match and hopefully another 3 points. Would be nice if manure do us a favour too.

Think it's a tough one as you have to take it a game at a time at this stage.

Imagine the backlash if we rested Kane (especially) then lost... Also it's made harder given to rest Kane we need to put someone up top who isn't a striker.

Could have played Bentaleb I guess for Dier but Poch clearly doesn't trust him in the league yet.

Great team, we just have to care about Ayew and Sigurdsson. Also Bentaleb on the bench for a league game.

Every game is a tough game in this run in, Poch probably thinks 3 points in the bag is crucial as we keep on Leicester's coat tails and if Manure do us a favour then we climb away from the Scum

I prefer the other fullbacks personally.
Poch's system is so reliant on fullbacks who can attack and cross the ball well, Walker and Rose consistently fail to do this. If he persists with the rotation then at least play Trippier and Davies in the home games against teams that come to defend.

Oh fucking kill me now.

In South Africa this week so watching on TV. There isn't a pre match show for our game, only the Man Utd/Arse game.

The studio guests are Sol Campbell and Michael Owen.

Shoot me.

:dead:
