Pre/Post Match Discussion: Carabao League Cup vs. Swansea (A)

Sat Oct 21, 2017 6:17 pm

Another tricky away game. but I hope we can add younger players and maybe Luke Shaw to start the match.

Darmian and Shaw with CB pairing Smalling and Linderlof. Don't know who else can we use at midfield unless we wanted the exact same starting XI we have used from the Huddersfield match.

Is Angel Gomes available? We need to add younger players and hopefully they can dislodge underperforming senior players. It seems the injuries of Pogba and Fellaini is really taking a toll on how we are performing. It is the time for the likes of Herrera to show but given on how we played these last 3 matches, he really need to redeem himself. A lot of players with poor form at the same time is really hard to watch. Really sad state at the moment.

Don't think Lindelof is getting the chance after the last match

Is Rojo fit or did we get a good idea if Jones can even play in midweek after that injury? don't know if it is just a preventive one or really a major injury hence he was subbed early.

Unless Mourinho would pick from the reserves, I'll still pick Lindelof.

even if Jones is fit I'd still play either Tuanzebe or Lindeloff for this game.

Rotate our better players - play the fringe guys with some youth.

Our captain might even get a run out lol

Back again after all the depression of the weekend!
We look OK so far and moving well.

Please don't screw up again, Lindy!

Goal!
Lovely back heel flick from Rashford to his mate, Lingard, who passes it into the net!

HT 1-0 but after a bright side we've faded into listlessness again and Swansea are getting a foothold!

Interestingly enough, the 6 HT scores only 3 teams are leading:

Us

Bristol City are leading Palace :/

Norwich are leading at Arsenal! :laugh:

Good shot Abrahams.

Axel commits foul in dangerous area on edge of box.

Lousy shot to our goalie.
