With the lead we have, this should be a relatively simple game. Even 1 goal will likely put the tie beyond reach for them, So they have the problem of needing goals, but not beig able to push forward too much as they are vulnerable to the counter.

In the game at Old Trafford whenever they pushed forward they where real susceptible to being caught out along their back line.

Given that if we score 1 they would need to score 5, I would play a strong front 3 and take this (rare) chance to rest other senior players. The likes of basti (experienced head but not a first XI player) for example have to play this game. Ashley Young too, Bogbrush etc

Romero
Young Smalling Rojo Blind
Menash Carrick Fellaini
Lingard Rashford Martial

Any team we put out should, should in theory be able to manage the game and qualify - need to rest Pogba, Zlatan, MickyT

I doubt we will see the line up above put have a solid base and let the front line chase

A shout for Young at LB not just this game but ahead of Blind and Darmian and Rojo for others?

Quicker, hardworking, better at attacking and has a good cross from the left

I must say I don't know how it appeared on tv but from where I was at the match, young got forward so well he just didn't get any sort of service. I've been a big fan of Tony v this season but I'd have to say young looked exceptionally dangerous. He still has that yard of pace and gets forward really well. I'd like to see more of him with the games coming thick and fast. A battle between him and Tony v for the right back slot would be intriguing

I'm really surprised Pogba and Zlatan are starting this game in view of the game on Sunday.
Can't we defend a 3 goal lead against a fairly average team without our two main men.

Looks a strong line-up hopefully nobody gets injured for Sunday. Either a goal for us or the longer the game goes on 0-0 then will see changes. Think Jose wants to be sure with the result. Anyway some people will be rushing home with the hidious timing of the match. Even though they're 3 down it looks a cracking atmosphere & I'm really excited.
