Was hoping for a start for Nketiah. This boy has something about him. Hope him and Emile will get some minutes today. #UpTheArse

I’ll hope for 45 minutes for each…after a 5-0 start in the first half!

Anyone any idea what the problem with Mavropanos is? Just watched a video of yesterdays training session and he looked all right there. But he’s not even in the squad.

Off topic but I’m watching Villareal and Santi is pressing in the 83rd minute like there’s no tomorrow. Massive respect to him that he has managed to play top Level Football again after all this shit he’s gone through.

Yeah probably depends on the result. If we’re up atleast two goals I could see Auba getting subbed for Nketiah quite early.

This is a serious line up – stronger than I thought! I hope someone doesn’t go back to Ukraine with a very damaging result.

A few too many first teamers starting for me. But hopefully we get a lead and then sub on players like Nketiah and Smith Rowe.

That is a very solid team. It’s a shame Smith-Rowe and Eddie aren’t starting, but maybe when we have a few points in the group Emery will gamble on them.

Looking forward to this especially seeing Leno’s feet! With Elneny and Torreira in front of the defence I can’t see us conceding! Famous last words…😂
