Looks like we'll be facing Spurs away on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup

Tottenham will be playing 3 games in 5 days

Typical Spurs fluking there way through a tie

Don't care about Jose, the last two years in these domestic cups we've played for sure Pool, United, City, Scums, Arsenal and Leicester. Some of them maybe more than once. What is going on with these 'draws'? 

Looks even worse when you compare our fixtures to Manchester City who nearly always get the easiest draw possible.

I don't think there is any fishy business going on, but there are times when you look at the draws that play out over time and it makes you wonder if something isn't going on.

What bollocks. Making them forfeit the tie. And they wanted football back last season to "protect the integrity of the competitions"

So what about the league cups integrity?

All about money and making sure Liverpool won the title. 

Question is if you win a trophy in an empty stadium is anyone around to hear about it? Lol

Football is becoming more and more of a joke.

Didn't realise how soon this game was! We should go:

 

-------------------------------Mendy

----------Azpilicueta--------Zouma--------Tomori

James--------Mount-------Kanté-------Barkley--------Chilwell (if fit, otherwise Alonso)

 

----------------------Giroud--------Werner

Spurs are playing today and in 2 games have another game, Jose is getting mad.

I want this competition and I believe that Lampard has to tell the players, that we need trophies and this competition.

I want us to play our best side, we need to fix that sh*t we made against West Brom.

------------- Mendy ------------

James --- Zouma --- Silva --- Azpilicueta

------------- Kante ------------

----- Mount ------- Havertz ----------

Werner ----- Abraham --- Hudson Odoi

 

We need that win for our confidence, we have so much talent to show but we're failing until now and it's okay, building a team to win everything takes a long time, but we need to start building it from these games.

COME ON CHELS!!!!!

Hear me out here....                               

                               Willy

                         AC          Silva

James                                                 Dave

                        Kova      Mount

                              Havertz

     CHO                Tammy             Werner

I want to save Mendy for the PL and CL games. Despite his howler I think Willy deserves the domestic cup games. I would also like to see CHO and Werner change sides a few times in the game. I think the Kova Mount Havertz triangle will keep winning the ball back for us in great positions. They all like to press and seem to be really good at it but when they do CHO and Werner will have to drop back 10 yards just incase they beat our press, Son can be leathal in those situations

Seeing as how RB Leipzig dominated Tottenham last year in the CL with the 3-4-2-1, I really think Frank should try using that formation again. Didn't we use it last year at times?

Mendy

Azpilicueta - Zouma - Tomori

James - Kante - Jorginho/Mount - Chilwell/Emerson

Havertz/Werner - Ziyech/Hudson-Odoi

Werner/Giroud

Or maybe finally try the 4-4-2/4-2-2-2 after all?

Mendy

Azpilicueta - Zouma - Tomori - Emerson/Chilwell

Kante - Jorginho

Havertz - Ziyech/Hudson-Odoi

Werner - Giroud

This competition has been made meaningless by the forfeit of Spurs previous tie. Hull refused to take tests and they will likely say it was a smart move given what happen to Orient and the money they lost. 

I know it is Spurs, but there is no integrity left in this competition. Thus since we have to play this game, play whoever needs the minutes.

If FIFA can auction world cups off

FIFA ban CFC from signings and let City walk

Platini get fired from UEFA
UEFA let City off 

& UEFA refs targeted CFC in CL KO matches re not awarding pens 

not a far stretch to imagine all these cup draws are potentially bent when someone wants an outcome
