There's no reason we can't nick this.

They’ll pick a pretty strong team. You only have to see who was on their bench for the Brighton game. Stones, Zinchenko. Fernandinho, Mahrez, de Bruyne. Sterling will probably return too.

Unfortunately cannot see that team beating a second string Man City team.

But Moyes will prioritise, and put a team out he will feel is needed.

Love to win this competition. But also love to finish 4th to 6th for obvious reasons. Love to win FA Cup and also a big target the Europa Cup.

We are unlikely to win them all. Will just have to wait and see.

Pep really go's for this competition and will play a very strong side, with some of regulars in it. If we are to progress, we sure will have earned it

Make changes. Doesn't make any difference. We'll still be MASSIVE!

Nope. For some reason Sky Sports think the viewers would rather watch a couple of dead games like the Gooners vs Leeds and Preston vs Liverpool. 2 games you know who the winner is going to be even before a ball has been kicked.

Can't wait. Hope it's similar to the Europa games with plenty of season ticket holders taking up their seats.

Really tough game this, ideally would use mainly the team that won at Old Trafford. But the main thing our back up team lacks is pace and athleticism.
Man City will dominate the ball whatever but without pace we are really going to struggle to hurt them on the break.

The young lad Chesters who came on in the week looked pretty quick, I wonder if we can use him - tough ask though.
Maybe give Yarmo 60 mins then try some of the young lads.

------------------------Areola
---------Johnson--Dawson--Diop
Fredericks---------------------------Masuaku
---------Kral--------Lanzini-------Noble
---------------Yarmo--------Vlasic

Kral possibly still out so Rice to come in.
Fredericks wasn't on the bench and struggled vs Genk so maybe he still has a problem.

Back 3 as Masuaku can't play LB.

These lot have a super-abundance of talent to pick from. They are set apart, from the rest, alongside CFC and LFC.

If the choice were left to Declan, he would be happy to lead the side out. And, as matters stand, I would back him to win the match, he is in such brilliant form.

On the other, I would have no qualms at all at Moyes backing at least some of the players who got us to this point, at Old Trafford, to start. Not Kral, mind. Not a game to feel your way into, for our new arrival.


The p:m experimental one-off why not? line-up

Areola

Diop
Zouma
Ogbonna

Fredericks
Soucek
Fornals
Masuaku

Bowen
Antonio
Vlasic

Declan the first sub on, once we've gone 2 up :newthumb:

I think we should make copious changes. It would be better for a team filled with changes to get walloped than our usual starting XI.

I suppose moyes has to weigh up whats more important. Cuty in the cup or villa in the league.
I think in both the teams may be half and half of the “cup team” and “league team” for both.
Im a bit afraid of our over reliance on cresswell and antonio because they will get injured or knackered soon enough.
Players like yarmolenko and vlasic really need to start stepping up. But that left back spot is the biggest worry.

Unfortunately there’s just no way we can compete in this, the league and the Europa league with our squad. We’ll make mass changes (which I do not blame Moyes for) and lose imo.

Interesting. 11 changes from today for me.

Areola
Fredericks Dawson Diop Masuaku
Noble Kral
Lanzini Vlasic XXXX
Yarmolenko

No idea who the XXXX is but I don't want to see anyone that started today start against City.

Can't see us beating the 2022 League Cup winners so go with mainly the team that played at Old Trafford with some kids on the bench.
