    It is a bit depressing, isn’t it? As we’re not expecting to get anything from the Man Utd game, I’d start Declan Rice alongside Ogbonna (L), Zaba (R) at the back (in a 3), play Obiang and Noble (CM) ahead of him with Masuaku left, Byram right and Martinez through the middle, supported by Arnie and Hernandez.

    • JRS says:

      Agree on back 3 need Zab on right would work.
      I think Rice in middle would be best he has shown he can step up and can play in mid very composed at 18 him over Fonte and Collins injured.
      Thought Reid was well know but just not good preseason.
      Def think back 3 needed tho and Adrian starts for me as well.

    According to we are top of the injury league table with liverpool.
    What is it with us and injuries.? 😭

  • JRS says:

    Yes first game or 2 will be tough and I doubt they will start Chica with only 60m preseason
    Don’t want to risk injury I’m fine giving To in the start and Chicharito sub last 20-30. Toni could surprise. Marko will need to show up big in this game and RW is hot Ayews best position. But he will most likely be there.
    I think a back 3 will be best to just go for a draw and I would keep Adrian in goal Hart hasn’t done enough for #1 yet for me. Adrian knows the squad well and will be out to prove a point as well. Masuaku gets the nod of Cressie for me. We need Gary Lewin to start making that Magic happen.
    Reid Rice Ogbonna
    Zab Masuaku
    Noble Obiang
    Ayew Marko

    Sub’s: Chicarito Hart Fonte Creswell Byram Fernandes Snodgrass maybe Sahko.
    Collins injury too Feggo as well even on way iut
