I think we need a CF for this bunch of reprobates. 

Usual suspects at the back, Barkley out for Kovacic. Kovacic brings a nicer balance to our midfield I find and with Bartley’s current form I don’t think we lose much attacking wise.

I’d love to see CHO start on the right with Hazard on the left but I have a feeling he'll be on the bench after playing a lot of minutes recently. Willy & Pedro with Hazard at false 9 will probably be out front three.

5:30 ko, thankfully more pre match drinking time, before I enter bridge to watch another toothless attacking display, unless we sign a 28 year old Didier in the next 48 hours.

Looking forward to this one, I live in Newcastle and a few of the guys in work are hardcore fans, might try and watch the game with them in the pub and hopefully see us stuff them 5-0 :biggrin:

They will park the bus and I worry about us scoring, as we just are not potent upfront.

Luiz can't process the ball like Jorginho, we would end up with less possession, but we would have 3 central defenders to defend, would probably end up looking like last season. 

ahh you put Morata up front, now i see, it's just a tongue in cheek team selection.

We need to change things around a little bit for these games, no need for 3 central midfielders who dont attack much between them. 

Put our best player in the #10 spot, center of the park connecting our front line with our midfield, the best ball holder in the team, center stage.

CHO on the left, Pedro/Willian on the right, and our biggest striker we have up front.

Alonso and Dave doing the overlap.

That will give us plenty of attacking options against the barcodes, 

 

                          Kepa

Dave      Rudiger      Luiz      Alonso

                 Kante       Jorginho

                          Hazard

        Pedro                          CHO

                    Giroud/Higuain/Tea lady (anybody but Morata)

Luiz has a better range of passing than Jorginho and he is more creative with it. His attacking vision is better. Also he is better defensively than Jorginho, (not much in it though), and he would give us more aerial strength.

Barcodes under Fatty will seat very deep just the same as Soton did. Doesn’t matter whom the personnel are on Saturday the manager has to figure out how to break these kind of deep blocking defensive / frustration tactics. In the last 2 months he has had limited success with this kind of team / game. Hope Hazard has a blinder then !

Won't happen, but this is what I'd like to see:

                            Kepa

        Dave   Rudiger  Luiz   Emerson

                 RLC    kante   kovacic 

               CHO   Giroud   Hazard

Obviously would like to swap Giroud with a striker that can score, but I'd take him over Morata and I'm sick of seeing Hazard at false 9. I'd even maybe try Pedro in place of Giroud.

This could be the lineup if Maurizio got drunk at the birthday party.  :biggrin:

For me, the best chance to win this game is to play a striker, play CHO and whip those crosses in until the striker head one ( or two) in. Willian doesn't deserve to start, Pedro is a good option but he looked lacking match sharpness. Hazard will always be a threat, but there's no point for crossing if Hazard plays the striker. Having said that, Sarri will likely to play a false 9 and the usual suspects, and another long day in the office.
