David Moyes is set to make his selection decisions later today based on what he saw as the lads trained on Silkeborg’s artificial pitch last night ahead of the Nations Cup clash.
The manager had said before training during his pre-match presser the surface presents him with some decisions and it now remains to be seen whether he will risk many first team regulars.
With a difficult match on Sunday against Everton at Goodison Park the boss may choose to play very much a second string eleven to do the business against Silkeborg who look to be on the same level as Viborg whom we overcame comfortably.
That – according to the Daily Mail – may see both Aaron Cresswell and Craig Dawson left on the sidelines despite having travelled with the squad.
They have both shaken off injuries along with Tomas Soucek but it really does seem probable that a number of first teamers will warm the bench rather than start.
Possible team: Areola, Coufal , Kehrer, Ofbonna, Emerson; Downes, Soucek, Lanzini, Benrahma, Bowen, Scamacca
