    Difficult to predict the team for this.

    Will Silva be available?
    Will Dragovic go straight into the team?
    Will all of our internationals return on time, without injury?
    Will Drinkwater, Iborra and Huth be fit?

    Something tells me Drinkwater will be fit.

    I've just had a momentary panic. When I saw 'prematch', I thought it must be later in the week!

    I've not thought about what sort of team we'll put out but my guess is it'd be pretty much no change from our last line-up. CS hasn't been able to see much of the new boys so I suspect they'll be, if available, on the bench. I'm presuming that Iheanacho will be fit and available so maybe he'll start. Doubt it though. I'd guess the Shinji the EnergyBunny will do his usual 60 minutes to empty role.

    I don't think we'll see Drinkwater start. I think Conte will be objective; if he feels there's a need for what he sees Drinkwater as offering, then he'll come on. Personally, I don't think it'll happen.

    it'll be the same team in the same formation and like the first game after every international break, Shinji will start, be fucked after 20 mins and subbed at HT

    I'd forgotten Shinji was away too. He plays tonight, the Mercury reliably informs me. So I take it it'll be his 'brother' who starts on Satdeh.

    I hope Top will arrange for him to fly back first class with a bed and personal masseuse in attendance.

    As previously stated its difficult to predict the team selection or even the fomation. Shakey has publically stated hes keen to fit Iborra into the team and added to that the purchase of Silva seems to point to a change in formation to bolster the central midfield. IMO Dragovic should start alongside Harry. But no doubt 442 and Morgan with Iheanacho on the bench (will he ever be deemed fit to start?) Ifear another game where we get overan in midfield. but i fancy us for a draw 1-1 Vardy

    Alex has it nailed up there. I suggest you rehearse that lineup

    Very probably - Shakey likes new signings to wait a few months before getting first team start places on the basis that they are either carrying injuries or not yet fully match fit or they are excluded by FIFA. In fact it is almost a requirement to be injured or about to be injured before players can join the club.

    I reckon we'll win 4-0 (all Mahrez penalties followed by aeroplane celebrations). Danny Drinkpiss to be selected for the game but find the lure of the home team treatment table too much, missing large chunks of the game leaving them with only 11 players.
