Seems that Lukaku will be out for this one at least, a chance for Rashford to start in his preferred role, Martial and Sanchez are other options. Lindelof seems to be preferred in home games where we have more options, had a good game yesterday I thought, not sure he'll get a game against a striker like Murray at this stage of his development and i'd expect Jones to come in for this one.
Would be nice to see a Martial Rashford Sanchez front 3.
They probably need 1 more win to be safe and I think they’ll be bang up for this one.
My guess is same team that started on Sunday but Rashford in for Lukaku.
Think he will rotate in the midweek game at West Ham then give his first team a run out in the final game keep them ticking over for the cup final, might give the Young keeper Periera a start in that one.
I assume Jones is back on the treatment table as he wasn’t even on the bench yesterday.
Be nice to see one or two youth team on the bench just in case we get well ahead and can give them 10-15 mins at the end
So he's basically ruled Bailly out for this game because people need minutes for the world cup.
A win secures 2nd place so I think he'll stay fairly strong in this one then strart rotating.
Valencia Smalling Rojo Young
Fellaini Matic Pogba
Lingard Rashford Sanchez
That would be my guess I think a reward for his goal on Sunday will be a start for Fellaini although with those 2 that makes our midfield a bit ponderous, if Fellaini did start I'd actually like to see Herrera given a go ahead of Matic in the middle of the 3.
At the back I think Rojo will get a start because he's hardly played this season and will be sweating on his world cup spot I think he was the player Mourinho was specifically referring to in his press conference.
Up top you would assume it'll be Rashford up the middle in the absence of red rom would like to see Martial ahead of Lingard from the start but I think he might play Martial through the middle against West Ham midweek.
Off topic but it was absurd what he said about Bailly not playing due to others needing game time to get in their respective WC squads. Sanchez isn't even going to WC yet he gets played over Martial and Rashford has had very little time lately. I smell a rat...
At times I don't think even he believes his own BS.
With a cup final around the corner you'd think he'd want to keep his number 1 centre back ticking over and ready for the big day? The only logic to it is Bailly for whatever reason isn't number 1 anymore either the manager is sick of the injuries or something else is going on.
There’s clearly no instruction on how to attack every move builds up different, there’s no blind passes because you know where you’re team mate should be and 2 seasons in we still look like strangers in attack every game.
6 changes always brings a sloppy performance and tonight showed that.
Fellaini can’t be asked to play like that in midfield he’s a battering ram not a build up player.
Pogba & Matic both poor tonight Pogba especially bad in final 1/3 I mean what was Mata doing for most of that game went nowhere, Martial trying to beat the whole team because he’s got no one to pass to and Rashford not involved at all.
This team seems fine in big games but when it comes to beating the rest still not good enough.
