Big One on Sunday...

Our recent form is good and we need to continue it.

If Martial plays up front he has a huge responsibility to hold the ball up. I'd be tempted to play Ighalo and have Martial on the left.

I heard Maguire, AWB and James all could miss the game.

I'd go
Romero
Bailly Maguire Lindelöf
WanB McT Fred Shaw
Fernandes
Ighalo Greenwood

And take the fight to them. Press high, put them under pressure so they cannot get their passing game going and we'll win. Close call for me between Martial and Greenwood but on balance Martial goes awol a bit too much for my liking.
I suspect the hobbit won't have the bollox to get for it though...

Their wingers are tough. I reckon we'll go with wingers of our own to counter. But yeah.. Our wingers are crap so idk.

Fub, are you in lockdown? I read most of the north has been shut down to stop the spread

Martial scores goals but he's a dl liability when it comes to team work and gameplay. He'll cost us more than he can give.

I was just thinking the same thing. He's always capable of some magic but he needs to protect the ball and be a focal point for us to build attacks

Williams is having a shocker so far
