    Probably the biggest game against them in some time. Thiago has to start.

    After that fuck knows.

    Usual front 3.

    Henderson.

    Robertson.

    Becker.

    Matip if fit.

    I think i need to take pre match thread responsibility back.

    Tough line up to choose - i expect United will go for a midfield 3 to fight. I’m not convinced that Thiago Gini & Hendo can be a trio but i think it’s our best option to try.

    Part of me wants Shaq to start but don’t see any deviation from that norm.

    Alisson
    Trent
    Matip
    Fabs
    Robbo
    Hendo
    Thiago
    Gini
    Mane
    Bobby
    Mo

    The mods should delete this thread and let someone else than Jinxy McJinx start them.
    That would please the footballing Gods.

    Agree with Brizzles team. Thats probably our best team currently. Need a big performance from everybody, and certainly a fit Matip..

    I wouldn't start Trent in this to be honest. Even when he's at his best he's still got issues defensively. At the moment he's having a stinker so I doubt he'd be able to cope with Utd's wingers.

    I'd keep Firmino out of this also. He's shite at the moment and offers not much. I'd love to see Shaq start alongside Mo and Sadio.

    If Matip is fit he plays, no question because hes miles better than any other option we have. For me Trent is probably the biggest question mark at the moment, you can see hes struggling and this is not a game for passengers. Is Neco or Milner a better option than a half cooked Trent?

    As for Utd they really have 2 players that concern me, Fernandes obviously because hes the one that makes them tick, if he gets time and space he will kill us with through passes for Rashford and Martial out wide. A high tempo congested midfield is exactly what he doesnt want so Id expect one of Gini and Hendo to be stuck to him like glue anf give him zero peace.

    The other one that Im concerned by is Cavani, hes a proper no9 who will look to battle our centre backs all day. Hes smart strong in the air and a lethal finisher, the high line wont suit as he doesnt have the legs to tuen and run into space him but hes good enough be an outlet for them to bring their runners into play.

    I dont think the stodgy 70% posession game will work here as Utd are built to drag teams in and hit on the break with pace which theyve got in abundance. They can be got at it but we need to move the ball into the front 3 much much faster before the defence locks into formation, if you can hit them early they are a shambles because Pogba and Fernandes dont run the hard yards and they really dont have good fullbacks or a good defensive organiser. They are fucking huge though so floated crosses and set pieces are going to be a total waste of energy, quick passes into space and they will be struggling in one on ones.

    We’re at home ergo we’ll likely win or, if an off day, might draw.

    But it’s a big game and Ole’s at the wheel / Maguire is their captain, ergo they’ll choke horribly.

    3-1 (a likely pen at some point for rat face)

    I agree. And start it later than when there's still over a week before the game!

    Does he sit with his finger hovering over the send button, waiting for the final whistle to go in the previous game?

    Great game to shake off the funk.

    Everyone raises their game a little and we'll be fine.

    Of course he does, but then I hit F5 on Liverpool.com repeatedly an hour before kickoff to be the first to post the lineup, so I cant criticise

    No worse feeling that when you post that line up first, but in the time between your page loading and you pasting and pressing post reply, some cunts beaten you to it.
