Still 3 days away until we’re back in action and the biggest test yet awaits us at the emptyhad. A clear litmus test this, where a strong city side will try to jump ahead at the top by a clear 4 points. But they face an up and coming new look team, we’re at a point now where we are almost at the level we need to be, new players make up our engine room and with only a point off 1st we’re only really just getting started!
A massive 6 pointer in which we need to protect the threat that will come, an in-form Virgil is a huge step forward in the right direction and solidifying the back line with an in form Konate would take it to the next level, Haaland (if he plays) has always said VVD is the toughest defended to play against so it’s in our range to keep him quiet.
So we’ve won 3 of our last 5 encounters with this lot, hoping to make it 4 of our last 6. We’ve got Dom coming back from a massive week enabling Hungary to qualify for the Euros next year topping their group so hopefully with some decent rest he’ll be singing on Saturday. The question is who’ll be with him in the mid, Mac is a big doubt because of injury whilst with the Argies so I think Endo slots in. I was thinking of who we’d put on Rodri and Klopp could go with Gakpo but Gravy has come into some form aswell so it’s a nice problem to have for once. Uptop I think Nunez has to start with maybe Jota and Salah.
Would be the sweetest Thanksgiving weekend ever bloody love to pull it off!
Come on you MIGHTY FUCKING REDMEN!!
