Best we can hope for here is a draw. I liked the way we played against Spurs, lot more energy and effort. If MP and BI are back that will make us look better.

I don’t want to see Furlong, Sawyers, Livermore or Phillips. I don’t want SJ either but we all know he’s going to be picked.

My team is:

Button (he’ll pick SJ)
O’Shea
Ivanovic
Ajayi
Townsend (I’d prefer Gibbs but he’s not training well apparently)
Kirov
Gallagher
Robinson
MP
Grady
Grant

  I expect us to line up as follows, although I suspect Phillips might make it onto the bench as usual. No place again for the likes of Grosicky, Austin.

                       Johnstone

                   Ajayi  Ivanovic  O'Shea

Furlong  Gallagher Jake Krov Townsend

                         Grant     Robinson

Subs: Button, Bartley, Gibbs, Sawyers, Pereira, Diangana, Edwards.

Id expect the same although not sure on rules regarding Robinson being last to have tested positive for Covid.
Id like us to keep this formation for a while including the Sheff Utd game instead of changing too much .
To not have a forward instead of Austin on the bench and Phillips instead of Kamil is stupid.

Our goal keeping options must be dire if no one can shift Johnstone. Townsend, Furlong and Bartley need to be dropped arnt doing it imo. Hopefully Pereira comes in at number 10 with Livermore dropped to bench. Grosicki has to get a place on bench for the inept Phillips.

Utd haven't won a home game yet which is extraordinary. We are going to get battered, no doubt about it in my mind.

Bilic just said in his presser that Pereira, Ivanovich and Callum are all available for Man Utd.

ASlso said he wants 5 subs not 3

He would be by the time it was implemented though. Maybe thats why he wants it. Can guarantee HRK and Phillips 30 mins every week then.

Any idea who's out with Covid?
I heard Johnstone almost had it but he stayed on his line and it went right past him, straight into the top corner.

This one's all about the performance for me, no real chance of a result, just need to build on Spurs.
Think it will be a cagey start but they will just have too much and will lead before halftime. Hope we score but doubt it.
3-0

Yes indeed, he was about 50 when he left for Portsmouth  ;)

He's probably 70 now and I'd still rather have him on the bench!  :)

United can be ruthless or disastrous. Hard to predict which but if they score early we are in trouble. They struggle with teams that put men behind the ball though so if we do that a can stay in the game you’d get more confident about us potentially snatching something as the game goes on.

Or losing 1-0 to an 88th minute goal?
You're right though, our best chance is to be solid and stay in it as long as possible and maybe hit them on the break?
I still think that, if Pereira, Diangana and Robinson are on it, we carry a threat. Livermore will get run ragged though which will put the defence under pressure.
I will still hold on to the hope that Button will get a game and solve our main problem though.
