I think this is going to be a very tough game, I don't think a hammering at Newcastle last week will have done us many favours. But football is a funny old game, so enternally optomisitc we can nick something.


No but a fast start & early goal with have them questioning themselves.

Have to go in to this one believing we can take 3 points here, will need a big game from the back 5 as Watkins & Diaby have goals in them.

No doubt they will play the better football and try and control possession but we can get at them on the transition, especially off Torres. Doucoure could have a massive game on the break again.

Transition is the key, I think the space between Centre back & Digne, especially as Digne pushes forward will be our best avenue to get at them. Gana & Onana will have be on it in midfield & quickly move the ball forward.
