Obviously a massive blow so do we stick with Blind and Smalling at centre back and put Rojo or Darmian there or does Blind move to LB?

Blind should stay at cb for me. Rojo does not have good positioning for a cb.

I think we'll see Darmian, Smalling, Rojo, Blind.

How about Ashley Young at left back for a left field suggestion?

Rojo very rusty last night and the forced change cost us really. He can be much better.

It was effectively changing two positions. Young might not be a bad shout but ultimately I think it wikk be rojo. Getting Jones back would be a bonus.

At the time it made sense to do it but in hindsight it maybe disrupted too much and Rojo's lack of any game time this season meant he was way off pace.

Not a good game. LvG was right to replace him at halftime. Needs rest in my opinion.
