Need AC back for this one. I don't think their defence is the greatest. Need to do what Spurs did and hit diagonal balls to their back posts (plus put in a massive shift and give them zero time on the ball!)
Fonte Kouyate Reid
Byram Noble Obiang Cresswell
Feghouli Ayew Lanzini
If Carroll is fit swap him with Ayew
Ill take a draw right now but i expect a good game and wouldnt be too disappointed with a loss as long as we put in a good shift
We've been caned about once a month this season, I'm hoping that's come to an end but I've hoped that a couple of times already.
The first thing I'll be looking for is not to concede four or five.
kouyate, Fonte, Reid
Byram,Noble, Obiang, Lanzini, Creswell
subs, Adrian, Collins, Feghouli, Snodgrass, Calleri , Fernandes, Masuaku
we beat them in the league cup playing 3 at the back . as much as i think Feghouli is playing well , just for this match i would make a tactical change. I hope everyone agrees on here we cant play Kouyate at right back against chelsea. Ayew deserves a start after his impact when coming on a sub yesterday.
Of the big six we've only had Arsenal, Man Utd and Man City at home, all three beat us, two of them absolutely smashed us, sadly I don't see this being much different.
When a side of real quality ask us questions, this season, we've rarely had any answers.
I can only see another whipping from one of the top sides unfortunately. 4-0 chelsea
On the bright side, give chelsea points gives Spurs an even slimmer chance of winning the league
Or anyone else. He's not a right back and we shouldn't be playing players way out of position in top flight matches, it's stupid, naive and it has cost us for years.
Looking at what we've got available I'd match their formation and hope for the best. Antonio is going to be a huge miss. He's exactly the sort of player you need as an underdog
antonio we will miss big time. assuming carroll will be fit
3 5 2 as we have to match midfield against this lot
kouyate reid fonte
byram obiang lanzini noble cresswell
subs adrian masuarka nordsvelt fernandez ayew callerei fletcher
maybe fernandez for byram if slav doesnt fancy sam
ayew for carroll if unfit
1-0 west ham
Kouyate Reid Fonte
Fernandes Noble Obiang Cresswell
Feghouli Carroll Lanzini
Trying to match them player for player.
Other than smashing Leicester away from home, they've drawn Burnley and Liverpool, lost to Tottenham and 1-0 wins against Burnley and Sunderland.
That to me says they're not invincible.
