  1. Not a snow balls chance in hell..imo.
    far to adventureous for Mr Moyes..and I am not a cinical. critic of the man its just my opinion. .but..COYI..

  2. Not a bad line-up but my choice would be:

    Diop Balbuena Ogbonna
    Johnson Masuaku (WBs)
    Rice Soucek
    Bowen Yarmalenko Antonio

    I would always play a defensive 3 due to our lack of quality at full back. Balbuena did OK for me at Spurs. Johnson may be a good FB (I haven’t seen enough of him) and if he is not fit to play, then Fredericks to play WB instead. Masuaku is not a FB but adds pace and unpredictability. If he has failed to recover his fitness, then switch Johnson to LWB with Fredericks at RWB. Yarmalenko as, while not swift, he can hold the ball up. Bring on Silva if needed in the second half but forget Anderson – hair and flair but he doesn’t seem to care. Great shame. I think we’ll win against Chelsea but that’s simply based on blind optimism, 2 hands-full of straws that I’m clutching and the fact that I’ll be watching it with a Chelsea fan. We’re due some luck. COYI.
