You would imagine this will be a defeat, we played well vs Spurs but City are pretty devastating in spells and not sure our side can live with it away from home. But saying that we have Ronaldo incarnate in Rashford so screw it - we are gonna nail them!!
It's going to be tough my guess is we'll setup similar to the Liverpool game in the 3-5-2 system with James and Rashford up top.
I guess the big question is will Pogba be back to make the midfield into a 3? I think you have to put 3 in the midfield vs City otherwise you'll just get destroyed so it's easy play a 3 or play a very tight 4-4-2 but we don't have enough centre mids to play a tight 4 in midfield. The key thing for me is we have to have a way out so that means 2 up top and we can all see City have weaknesses at the back.
I think the Spurs game will have taken a lot of energy so it will be tough to go again especially against City who will dominate the ball.
Lindelöf Maguire Tuanzebe/Rojo
AWB Fred McTominay Pogba/Lingard Shaw
I don't think we'll be able to play Pogba/Lingard as a number 10 and allow him to stay higher up like we have been but that's the guy who needs to be making the lung busting runs to join the attackers when we do get the ball.
There will always be doubters but you’ve always got to keep the faith that things will turn around. I’m not so naive to think all things will be rosy from now on but this is a start and Ole has clearly shown in the big games he’s able to cut it. The important thing now is that we can win those lesser games when teams just sit and we cannot use our counter attacks as effectively.
