If we can’t beat Young Boys we don’t deserve champions league football. 6 points from these two is a must. I wouldn’t even both changing that much. Keep a strong squad get to 12 points ASAP rest players in the final game.
And sadly this probably isn’t their cup final. They’ll be looking forward to playing Ronaldo more.
I think getting to 9 points after 4 games has to be the target 7 as a minimum Juventus are miles clear of us so taking 1 point from the head to head isn't the end of the world but we need to get the 6 points on the board early.
I don't think they're unbeatable but they are a few levels above us and probably the 2nd best side in Europe over the last 3 seasons they just couldn't beat Madrid so I see any points out of those 2 games as a bonus really we need to be targetting 10 points from the other 4 fixtures.
I just hope the attitude is right tonight surely Brighton was a big enough wake up call to them we need our big hitters to turn up and get the job done.
Starting XI wise my guess
Valencia Smalling Lindelof Shaw
Matic Fellaini Pogba
Lingard Lukaku Sanchez
Don't see any real reason to change it maybe Fred in for Fellaini in midfield if we fell he needs a rest or if Young Boys don't play a direct style but Pogba will start and Matic is banned at the weekend so might as well play him. Maybe make a change to the front 3 and start Rashford over Lingard but I think a settled side is a good thing to build some momentum off 2 decent results/perforamcesn make the changes in the league cup next week for the guys who need a rest.
Would have no problems throwing in Dalot. If he’s good enough then he’s old enough. It could also prove a master stroke because this is the chance to start bedding in a new right back because Valencia’s goose has been well and truly cooked.
Would be great to see two young full backs in operation together, youth always brings a certain freshness to the side.
