We are much better against the better sides - we have won at Man City, Arsenal, Spurs already this season.
I’m inclined to agree with all of that I think.We need to hope for a heavy Utd win today.
If they get that they will be on 70 points and 30+ goal difference.
That will mean that they have 99.9% secured Champs league football unless WHam, Liverpool win all four games and overturn a 15 goal goal difference deficit and us and Chelsea also win all remaining games.
If they win then i think they are very likely to rest a chunk of players on Tuesday to avoid the risk of injury and or burnout and save those players to try and stop Liverpool from making 4th spot on Thursday.
Essentially i am pinning our hopes on Utd wanting us to be in the Champs League more than Liverpool, which i'm pretty certain is going to be the case. They won't be competing for players with Leicester and if they knock Liverpool out then players like Haaland, Sancho, Mbappe etc have one less option other than Utd....
Ok i'm clutcing at straws, but if they line up on Tuesday with no Fernandes, Rashford or Pogba then I will certainly be happier....
Certainly Maddison should be nowhere near this 11 or the cup final. Nor Ricardo. Their seasons look over to me.
I think we may see Amartey and Perez here.
It’s not pretty.
Yes, me too.I’m inclined to agree with all of that I think.
