Hernandez should be on the bench if he's fit though?

Yarmolenko was one of the players who performed well when we recovered from the bad start last year-I was gutted when he was injured. Hopefully he can have a decent game.

Decent looking line-up. What’s the deal with Chich? Not on the bench?

I know it’s only 3 games in, but I’m not getting how we can pay £24m for a player (Fornals) who showed a lot during the summer, but isn’t an automatic starter :?

Who do you start him ahead of?

He’s young and will improve. The first two matches showed he’s not ready for the physicality of the Premier League yet.

Would've liked to see Antonio up against 35 year old Holebas.

Hopefully Yarmolenko can cut inside him throughout the game. Expect Haller to have a good game.

Hughes and Cleverley isnt an inspiring midfield.

I really like our team today, although I’d say Antonio is very unlucky to be in there.

Above all Pellegrini clearly wants us to have pace in defense, as all of our back four are fairly rapid.

Amazing that none of Cresswell, Hernandez or Wilshere are even on the bench. Am guessing the middle one of those may have a knock but the other I’d imagine have been completely dropped.

Yarmolenko cost similar and has replaced him, mad to think we have started to have those kind of subs. Fornals needs to get used to the pace and physicality of the premier league, he clearly has the technical ability to do well.

Was not confident of a win but hopeful, now with Ogbonna starting for us and Doucoure for them we’ll concede at least 2. Andre Grey nailed on to score as well!

Cresswell, Snodgrass, Wilshere and Hernandez all completely out of the 18.

The lightweight middle needs either wing backs or pushing forward fullbacks to squeeze the middle closer together.

1-2
Haller Antonio

Thought Antonio would have got a nod to start after his performance last week.

Not sure if this our strongest 11, it's certainly strong though. COYI

Two of their better players who were doubts are out, and three of our most crucial players who missed last week’s match are back.

We have a good team out today. Now it’s about producing on the pitch.

Not sure what Antonio needs to do to get a start.
He’s a perfect player to be against Watford too imo.
Oh well line up looks better than last week!
