Away to a top side I would unapologetically play for a draw here. Sit back and hit them on the counter. Some small roatation as well.

Pickford
Holgate keane Williams baines
Schneiderlin Gana
Sandro Mirallas lookman
DCL

Go for the pace on the counter with that front line.

Not bad.

I couldn't justify dropping Rooney, I think he is vital for the big games with his experience.

You just know he will put Martina in before Holgate even though Holgate is a much better all round player.

Would like be to see Lookman get a start and cause some damage with his direct running but I am skeptical of Koeman to even give him much game time.

Mirallas offers the square root of bugger all these days.

I suppose the only thing I would change from your line up is go with Rooney again over Mirallas.

I'd expect Holgate to start as City have more about them than Stoke.

Pickford
Holgate Keane Jags Baines
Schneiderlin Gana
Davies Klaassen DCL
Rooney

What I'd like to see

Pickford
Kenny Holgate Jags Baines
Davies Barry Gana
Sandro Rooney Klaassen

For me the performance level of Keane and Schneiderlin was that of players who are too comfortable. Let them know they can and will be dropped for only putting a run of the mill shift in. I want more than 7th.

It's not a must win?! :o

 

:P

 

Why would you drop Rooney? I'd be going;

 

Pickford

Holgate Jags Keane Baines

Gana Schneiderlin

Davies Rooney Sandro

DCL

 

edit; forgot about the Europa tie, but I'd still stick with the same line up

itll be a tricky balance, but until we qualify for the group stages I agree, EL needs to take priority

Same for me. Rooney looked really good when he dropped a little deeper in the second half. Great vision and passing. I think Mirallas is a super sub at this point.

I don't think u can sit back against city. Think we have to go at them. Its early in the season so they won't be firing on all cylinders. City have £50 mill players on the bench so their quality is there. Holgate to play in a back four. Gana and Morgan with Davey tom and Rooney in front and Sandro up top. Dcl to come on when he is knackered. 1-2 to us fuck it. Sandro and Keane with the winner

Get last years video out, and try and repeat it. Unfortunately half of the team that day are injured or gone.

Pickford
Martina Holgate Keane Williams Baines
Klaassen Davies Barry Mirallas

Attack is the best form of defence against City, if you sit back and try to defend they will find away through.
We normally do well against them by giving them a game.
