"How would supporters feel if we played a weakened team for this ? Thought not. Yet we see the cup competitions devalued round after round.
"Strongest team for me, a 4141, Nasri isn't fit enough to start so its Rice at DM and Noble and Snoddy in the middle, ****ed by Antonio and Anderson, Arnie up top. Backline of the General , Diop , Cressy and Zab. Absolutely Fab in goal.
"One goal margin either way."

"They look like a superb side at home this season but they don't seem to have put their finger on it away yet. Hammered at Liverpool, drew at Brighton, lost at Southampton, drew at Man Utd... it is certainly not a game we should be writing off by any means.
"Rice will need to have a very good game to keep Xhaka quiet. He loves joining the attack from deep in the same way Lampard used to for Chelsea. Poses a big threat.
"Their front three (Aubameyang, Iwobi and Lacazette) are quality, no doubt about it. Their movement and interchanging is unreal. Good news is, they very rarely play all three of them away from home. Let's hope that continues. Even if they do play, they are very much the types of players we prefer to play against. It won't be a long ball bombardment and that is where we are most susceptible.
"If we can be disciplined and solid in defence we have a real chance to hit them on the break, especially out wide. Anderson will be given plenty of opportunity to get in behind Lichtsteiner who is good for at least a goal per game thanks to a huge concentration issue.
"This feels a lot like the Man Utd game earlier this season to me. They pose an obvious and massive threat but we do have every chance of upsetting them as they are far from unbeatable."

"They have the same frailties at the back as we do. They can definitely be got at, out trouble is keeping the ball out enough times from our own net is the tricky bit. They'll be just as worried about our forwards and we will theirs. The last time we played them proved that, with a scoreline that heavily flattered them in the end. A game we deserved something out of it."
