Our toughest test so far. Chelsea represent title rivals, and whether we agree or not, the addition of Lukaku makes them a different challenge.
However, bring it on…
At CB Matip and Virg have been very safe thus far but the thought of playing a big unit like Konate vs Lukaku is an option. I reckon Joel has done enough to stay in place. On his game he is probably our second best CB.
LB is a quandry. Kostas has been superb, and at any other club this wouldn’t be a question…but a fully fit Robbo HAS to start. Surely?
Hopefully Fabinho is ok to start, his presence is neccessary, and I would consider Thiago and Hendo in the three. Harsh on Naby and Harvey perhaps but what a great dilemma for the Boss to have.
I would start Bobby with Jota on the bench.
Loads of pee season peedictions had City or Chelsea as champions and the Lukaku factor is underpinning their claim…
Looking at the squads pound for pound, player for player we can and will compete at any level…
Lets tear into them! Come on Reds, fucking lay down serious markers here.
