Don't think RLC deserves another start after he played well against Saints?

I go with experience to get the win since Chalobah is young and Rudiger and T.Silva are out. Basically this is the strongest lineup I could think of unless you want to put in Alonso instead of Chilwell.

Fair enough.

 

Incidently Taylor must be a happy bunny right now, already making headlines:

Those are some known people to me too, Khalid, Benson and that CFCdaily twitter account...

I guess it's impossible to not think about the ref ahead of this game, he loves his Manchester and has been controversial against us already too many times. Still I hope that there is another reason why he was given this game, to show that he is not biased against us, at the expense of poor Brentford, just so that he can later on continue with his usual behavior.

Azpilicueta Christensen Chalobah

            Jorginho Kante

James                            Chilwell

             Werner Mount

                  Lukaku

 

 

 

Plan A

                      Mendy

Azpilicueta Christensen Chalobah

            Jorginho Kante

James           Mount           Chilwell

             Havertz     

                     Lukaku

 

Plan B

                      Mendy

Azpilicueta Christensen Chalobah

             Jorginho  Kante

James           Mount          Chilwell

            Havertz  Werner  

 

I would start with plan B personally, plan A is what Brentford will be expecting and to some degree will prefer as it's straight forward, keep Lukaku with his back to goal and ask him the question 'can he make the ball stick', because he has struggled with his back to goal and poor first touch in the last 5-6 games.

i feel like we should start with RLC and bring on Kanté for him later in the game to kill the game. I feel it must be a mental blow for any team to see a fit kanté coming on in the 60th minute if you are chasing the game. 

 

 

                           Mendy

            Chalobah Christensen Azpi                

James**                                               Chilwell

                     Kova  RLC* 

            Mount              Werner    

                     Lukaku

 

*(kanté on around 60th)

** James could go into midfield position to match brentford mid 3, transforming us into a back 4. Or we might see James or Azpi coming off for jorginho or another midfielder depending on who starts. 

 

also becomes obvious that we don't have a natural back up for the left cb position

Dave  played two hard competitive games in the break, gains the best left side attackers in Italy  and France and did well. It’s still asking a lot of him to turn up again against brentford. It’s complicated with Silva and Rudigier out but  you could play Reece and cho on the right side of defence.
