Even more worrying is Sanchez on the bench! I just hope our midfield can last all game.

Fornals should be one of the first names on the team sheet every week, the question should always be which 2 of Lanzini, Snodgrass, Noble join him based on opponent. There is no tactic we can play and no opponent where he isn't better than at least 2, likely all 3 of those.

Pretty shocking team, but I have a weird feeling about tonight. Think we’re gonna do ‘em!
I had that feeling once about a West Ham fixture. It was the very first game I saw us play. Over 30 years ago. Not had it since. :D

It'll be interesting to see how we set up, Lanzini over Fornals again is frustrating, if Lanzini offers another pitiful performance in the first half, that needs to be the first change.

Let's see how the formation sets out...is Cresswell playing in a back three with Zab and Arthur wing backs? Or just a flat 4 (which is pointless)..?

No real partner for Haller AGAIN...how can, first Pellers and now Moyes not see that Haller needs at least one player next to him....and a forward, not Lanzini!!

0v3 to them in afraid...
Our midfield is so weak we cannot play 2 up top against a team inside the top 6. Moyes is parking the bus tonight to grind out a result.
Either way it looks a big task. 2 strikers or not

Lanzini must have exquisite wrist action.

3-5-1-1 with Cresswell at LCB?

Romford is Brothernero don’t know about this Dan imposter though?

Was convinced on Saturday when I saw the team that we’d get beaten, luckily Everton are a bit crap, unfortunately Leicester aren’t, our team just doesn’t have enough pace, youth and energy to deal with these 3-0 Leicester :(

Moyes has not beaten a top 8 team away from home for 25 games
i hazard a guess he is not that bothered about doing it tonight either

I imagine he has spent all week telling the players what a great outcome keeping the point you start with would be

i think we all know what happens next....

3 at he back
Zabby and Masuaku as wing backs
Snod Rice and Noble central with Snod given a free role.
Lanzini behind Haller.
Lets hope we get lots of set pieces.

Only thing that disappoints me with Moyes is the under use of fornels

Should be starting for lanzini or even noble ..

Fornels has been developing nicely
He has his fav's and sticks to them I'm afraid

I want Lanzini in the side, just not at the expense of Fornals.

I’d have gone.

Lanzini over Fornals again :?

I just don't get it. Bloke has been anonymous pretty much all season.

He owes Moyes big time with a performance.
In a perfect world, tonight would be the night that Manu curls one in from the edge of the box. Sadly, it's not a perfect world...

We need to bear in mind that we are in a run of 4 games in 14 days and the squad tonight is it! I thought Lanzini was ok on Saturday and with what we have at the moment probably the best available to support Haller. Fornalls will no doubt come on and probably play Saturday. After that do we want to risk Antonio tonight? After that there is just Ajeti. Bear bones indeed.
