Adingra, Fati, Pedro, Mitoma and Gross need a rest after Thursday, but would have to be on the bench. Probably too early to start Moder. Shame we can't play both goalkeepers ...

Steele would definitely make a decent central midfielder 😊

Gross, Mitoma and Dunk pretty much always start when fit; and I think it will be the case again.

Subs: Verbruggen, McGill, Van Hecke, Lamptey(?), Dahoud, Gimour, Adingra, Fati, Joao Pedro

This looks very possible. Agree that I don’t think Pedro will start, he looked shattered and put in a massive shift.

That looks as sensible as any. Possibly Gilmour will be asked to go again in central midfield, with Hinshelwood on the bench, Billy has a good engine, then he can rest up for a week.

Mitoma looked shattered on Thursday and is not as effective as end of last season. I think he needs a rest or maybe a cynical niggle for the international break.
Gross is a must pick but he cannot keep this up without a rest either.

Play the strongest 11 we can. We aren’t going to see any benefit from resting Gross, Mitoma etc if they then go and play two games next week for their countries. If we’ve got genuine concerns about their fitness then pull them from international duty but we don’t want to be weakening our side on Sunday anymore than it has to be.

I’m not sure we can rest too many, to be honest. Some of them are 20/21 years old. Stick them an ice tub for a couple of days, they’ll be fine.

Against Fulham it looked a bit like we had 3 at the back. We could see a repeat of that.

I have no idea how this works in practice, but that’s not my problem. I liked seeing Buonenotte through the middle more than out wide, he seems to play with more purpose there.

Why wouldn’t one of Dahoud or Gilmour start? They don’t need a rest. Fati came off after an hour so no reason why he couldn’t shafy also.

Someone mentioned the 3 at the back option a bit earlier. I agree, I can't see how he can play a back 4 or 5 with the full-back issues we now have.

It looks like quite a patched up side really. He might play Dahoud again, maybe ahead of Gross. I thought Dahoud looked good last night and Gross could probably do with a rest.

This is the one.

Steele
Veltman Webster Van hecke Igor
Gross wee billy
Adingra fati mitoma
Ferguson.

It is time to unleash fati starting in the prem. Pedro looked done in. I think we need height to defend set plays so all centre backs play.

Mitoma looks tired but we can’t be resting him for Japan to benefit. This feels like a game we really have to win to turn the prem season back positive.

Has anyone else had an email from the club this morning? . . .

If you have a ticket for the game, please bring your boots and report to a Senor De Zerbi at 12pm sharp.
If you do that you will not meet the coach. Signore

Gross and Mitoma in the red zone I reckon of games played, so come out of the side.
Adingra asked to play a wing back role

On the hour ....
Dahoud for Lallana
Buonanotte for Pedro
Ferguson for Fati

If Dunk is out might even see a new name on the bench. McConville perhaps

Just got to get through this one, lick our wounds and rest up for a couple of weeks and hopefully have one or two back after the internationals

Baleba to start I’d think and Fergie if his foot is ok. Lallana in number 10 position. Pedro and Fati to come on later. Steele in goal and maybe three along the back. .
