I disagree. Losing is a bad habit.

We lost against Villa and managed to avoid getting hooked on that sweet, sweet rush of defeat.

 

I'm just being pedantic; the fact is that we can afford to lose this and still qualify.

One win out of the next three puts us through. No need to push too hard with an away match Saturday morning so we should rotate as much as we can. We should have at least three more players back soon so this week is when we shouldn't be taking chances with players' fitness.

As Salah should be fresh i'd bring him in and give Mane a breather.

 

Rest Matip because just seems too risky to ask him to play 3 times in a week and rest Robbo.

 

Go as strong as possible those changes aside.

No idea who might be available who has been injured but working on a they will still be out assumption maybe this side?

 

Alisson

 

N. Williams

Fabinho

R. Williams

Tsimikas

 

Jones

Milner

Wijnaldum

 

Salah

Jota

Firmino

 

Probably could do with Wijnaldum getting a breather as he got flogged badly by Holland in international, but can't see any other options given Henderson and Thiago being unfit....hopefully one of them back weekend and Gini can get a breather...or Fabinho can play in middle weekend and Phillips get a game at back.

 

Having to use Fabinho at centre half does of course have a knock on effect on midfield options and it is exacerbated when have key men missing in middle - and Keita breaking down again.

Liberal use of second half subs will help.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Mo, Mini and Div up front. If we did that then we could play four non-knackered forwards on Saturday like at City. That would mean we could rest whichever one of our midfielders is deadest on his feet.

I wouldn't start Milner, two games in 3 days may be too much. 

He's a fitness freak and he's barely played this season. he'll be fine. I'd start him at right back again and bring Neco Williams on with 20 to 30 minutes left.

Jones should deffo keep his place. Tempted to think Div should get a runout but he's heartbreakingly shite.

Its exacerbated by often being played out of position. Not that he's always great when played centrally but I think when he plays that's where he should play.

Milner will have to babysit both Williams boys tonight as I shudder to think what will happen if zapata turns into Drogba again, even for 5 mins. Also, matip playing tonight astutely means he won't play the weekend as he'll break into a million billion pieces

 

Edit: zapata is on the bench!

I doubt the plan is for Matip to play the full match.

Not too promising for Minamino if Origi is getting a game ahead of him 

Must be a horses for courses thing. Salah, Mané, Origi is pure counter attack. 3 quick strikers up against their 3 CB's.

    • The Derby isn't a great game  it's usually fucking horrible. And we pay for the 6 points big time. It's never enjoyment.
    • I'm mildly hysterical after that. I'm trying to explain to Mrs RiB but she's not really getting it
    • Weird the way the Premier League is corrupt but they celebrate staying in it like its a massive achievement.    Still no clue why they haven't been done for FFP breaches.    Anyway, 27 years without a trophy, the irrelevant cunts. 
    • Ah, a fellow newcomer.  I'm actually 3 seasons into it now, and it took a few goes for me to get here but it's well worth it.  Bits of it annoy me, it's no Soprano's, but it's very watchable. 
    • We won a trophy, City finally slipped up, Everton were dragged back into the relegation mire and Arsenal went the full Arsenal to gift wrap a Champions League place to their most hated rivals. I’ve had worse weekends!   I’ll start at Goodison because that’s where most of the fun was. It started with their fans pulling that stupid “fireworks outside the team hotel” shite. They did it against Chelsea and won the game, so they figured they’d do it against when Brentford came to town. You shouldn’t provoke Bees because when they get angry or feel threatened they sting.    Evertonians have spent years mocking our support. The banners, the chants, the pyro, the greeting of the team coach before big games… “Kopite behaviour” they called it while they scoffed. Now look at them. They’ve embraced all of it.    Frankly it’s hilarious. We’re greeting coaches before we play in massive European games or league fixtures that could decide the title. They’re doing it against Brentford as they look to stay out of the bottom three. It’s world’s apart isn’t it. I almost pity them. Almost.   How can you pity them when they carry on the way they do though? Going to the Brentford team hotel in the early hours of the morning is just embarrassing. What’s worse is how many of them were bragging about it like it was some kind of achievement.    Still, it all adds to the comedy, especially when they lose the game, have two players sent off and then Brentford’s official twitter account (as well as their captain) trolled them on twitter. This shit only ever happens to Everton.   What makes it all the more amusing is they were ahead and well on top. Calvert-Lewin deflected in a feeble shot by Richarlison to put them ahead and it was all going swimmingly. Richarlison ran off celebrating while Calvert-Lewin was telling anyone who would listen that it was his goal.    Then, the Premier League led conspiracy to send Everton down reared its ugly head again. How are people not seeing this? It’s so obvious that everyone is conspiring against the Blues. Frank should write another letter. Or maybe get his mates in the cabinet to order an inquiry.     This is just a teaser, click here to view the full article   Please note that PL Round Ups are only available to website subscribers.
