It would, and of that is a concern then TT shpuld play the kids against Leicester and Villa. We get a CL spot if we win the final right. He is paid a lot of money to make the right calls.

The worst scenario is losing to Leicester twice while playing all key players and then by default losing the CL final as well because of tiredness... Hope Tuchel can avoid that.

He is paid a huge salary to make it work and he admitted he knew he had to win from the beginning

6 days between villa and CL final, more than we have had for months. Don’t think tiredness should be a problem. You do risk injury of course.

In comparison Pep will rest all his key players so in my book we're the underdogs.

If United can at least hold Liverpool today then Leicester can secure top 4 by beating us at the bridge.

A draw would have Liverpool join West ham at being 6 behind us with a game in hand, 2 further points behind the foxes. Even if they won those games in hand Leicester would come to the bridge knowing a victory would secure them 3rd place, which would also present West ham and Liverpool opportunities to overthrow us.

Big game to today for Leicester especially.

Guess that didn't work out as planned ...that's why our game yesterday was a must win for me and the team blew it.  Liverpool are not going to lose any of their last games, even others are smelling blood now...we have to win against Leicester next week, a draw won't be any good

f**k sake we really need to beat Leicester now at home or we could be possibly in trouble.

We are in trouble and that's why yesterdays game was so crucial ...now it's panic stations given who we have to play.

That would be the absolute worst thing to do, our players will have no match fitness going into that game in Portugal.

The one positive last night brought us is due to 2 or 3 no room for error games coming up we will effectively get dress rehershals for the final while City are basically playing friendly's until then, it's a big advantage in competitive sharpness we must take full advantage off.

As long as we don't get any injuries or players playing through the pain barrier the yes, match sharpness could work in our favour.

That's the risk we have to live with, they could quite as easily get injured training.

People bemoan that friendly in America in 2019 but my stance on that was it was a crucial part in why we were much sharper than Arsenal in Baku.
