After the royalty stuff Irons can go regal

It would be a big surprise were Declan, Tomas and Nayef not walking out of the tunnel tomorrow evening once we have got all this royalty stuff done and dusted.

And I have a strong feeling we may be seeing a regal performance from the Irons as they take on Manchester United at the London Stadium.

The three have apparently had bugs but will want to play a part in such a huge game and I’m told as things stand they are feeling ok.

David Moyes has made rather a lot of the bug which may be circulating the dressing room which is unlike him and we hope this is smoke and mirrors as we prepare for a match of great importance.

We have had an extra day to recover from the Man City game and with United having won just one of their last four games I’m feeling confident of a point at least.

Three looks possible against a team that can blow hot and cold and without Zouma and Coufal it is gonna be tricky.

However I am going for a draw from this likely team: Fabianski, Johnson, Aguerd, Ogbonaa, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Paqueta, Fornals, Bowen and Antonio.

Moyes of course may choose to play Kehrer at right back and is very ublikely to play Lanzini who is well overdue a place in my book.

Please no Benrahma Moyes.

Prediction 1-1
