With international break and having 3 games in 6 days after this game rotation will be crucial. Will go for

 

                           Mendy

Azpi.  Christensen.  Rudiger. Sarr

                         R L C

Ziyech.   Mount.    Kovacic. Werner 

                    Lukaku

Yeah I agree Real has to be the priority. As unlikely as a second consecutive CL is we have to try our best to achieve it. So resting as many who played internationals as possible is a good idea.

Means the likes of Lukaku, Ziyech, Chalobah, Sarr are best used.

Also wonder what mindset Jorgi will return in after Italys shock defeat. On the plus side one less game, but he sounded mentally destroyed by it happening.

Based on what I can see our line up with the least amount of international used players would be:

 

Kepa

 

James

Chalobah 

Sarr

Alonso 

 

RLC

Saul

 

Ziyech 

Vale

 

Lukaku 

CHO

Why do you always put young players in the team that will not play? Vale is not going to be thrown in for a league start when he has never made a league appearance before. No way if we go four at the back are we playing Sarr and Chalobah. This isn't a cup game. You need to be more realistic with the team you predict sometimes with all respect mate.

Did you miss the opening lines about it being the line up with the least amount of international used players? Not the line up I expect us to go with.

While some rotation is definitely required, I don't see why we should change half of our team. This is an important game, don't forget that top 4 isn't fully secured yet. If we have one eye on real this could get tricky...

Anyway, this is what I'd like to see :

                            Mendy

       Azpi    Christensen (if fit)    Rudiger

      James    Kante    Kovacic     Alonso

                   Ziyech       Werner

                           Havertz

Erikson factor makes it interesting. In general they have been shown to be poor for months.

If we turn up with the right attitude we win handsomely. I trust TT to keep us focused.

Real absolutely has to be the primary goal. Always CL before qualifying for next seasons CL for me.

Yes, but some of them haven't even played. Rudiger was unused in their first game. He will play against Netherlands but he has to play as he is important but either way 1 game played across international break is not a reason to leave him out. He isn't travelling far too. Wanting that lineup looks like we aren't even taking the likes of Brentford seriously who absolutely peppered us last time we played them in league. Vale is also on international duty in any case albeit with the younger group. I wasn't having a dig mate but I can't see how you are being serious with suggesting we put out that team in a league game. Also need to get the team match sharp and ready for our crucial game against Real.

I was not seriously suggesting we use this line up. Don Antonio's post got me thinking if I could name a line up that would clock no international minutes so I came up with that one, though as you pointed out I missed that Vale is involved with youth internationals.

I certainly want Pulisic and Silva not involved based on their travels and ideally not Havertz either as he will be key against Madrid.

So in terms of a line up I would seriously pick it would be more like this:

 

Mendy

 

Chalobah

AC

Rudiger

 

James

Jorginho

Kovacic

Saul

 

Ziyech

Lukaku

CHO
