Start Vlasic, Fornals head is with his newborn kid
Agreed, Vlasic has earned a starting place and you can see his contribution and confidence growing with each game.

Fornals is also the perfect substitute to bring on against a tiring Leeds side

Re: Who Will Beat Us To Top 4?

Brilliant that Man U slipped up today. If we win tomorrow and I think we will, we are in pole position for a top 4 finish

Re: Who Will Beat Us To Top 4?

Spurs were so dreadful that first half against Chelsea. 30% possession, not one shot and only one corner. Let's hope they carry that form over into the Premiership

Re: Who Will Beat Us To Top 4?

Arsenal's purple patch won't last
Spurs, new manager bounce will come to an end
Manchester Utd are shambolic
We have come through our sticky patch and are still in the mix, and with Zouma and Cresswell back later this month we will prevail.

Re: Other PL Festive Fixtures - 26th Dec -3rd Jan

It's staggering that Lingard doesn't start for that team.

They really are poor, no cohesion, no plan, no spirit, too reliant on some individual magic.

Really hard to see them top 4 based on that performance

Re: Other PL Festive Fixtures - 26th Dec -2nd Jan

I guess Lanzini's goal of the month trophy is gone after the first Chelsea strike - what a beauty! I doubt he could repeat it, 9 times out of 10 he misses that. He made great contact, but it was hit and hope. Lanzini’s on the other hand was only possible due to his speed of thought with feet to mat...

I wonder how Lukaku would have done, I think he would have loved Liverpool's high line

Kante is a player, similar impact on a game to Declan

Re: Other PL Festive Fixtures - 26th Dec -2nd Jan

Surely cant be as open 2nd half. I think 1 goal wins it now

Re: Who Will Beat Us To Top 4?

I think top 6 is more likely and that will consolidate the progress we have made under Moyes.

The Europa is the real prize for us this year

Re: Declan Rice

Guardiola is probably the best coach for him Massively experienced at all levels, has worked with and for some of the greatest players of all time (Cruyff), himself an ex-defensive midfielder. He's an obvious next step for Rice. Whether the fit with the Man C team would work is a different question...

Re: ⚽ Crystal Palace vs West Ham Utd: match thread

To be fair on the injury front they arguably had their 2 best players out in Zaha and Gallagher. We had 3 of our starting back 4 out. Probably evens itself out in the end, but we came away with a win, whereas in the past we would have lost that one.

Do we not have centre backs playing in the under 23's. Surely can't be worse than Diop

Masuaku is genuinely horrendous
Very harsh, he has been ok
