    Swansea are fighting to avoid relegation. Tough game. Sigurdsson's set pieces are inch perfect, Eriksen's can barely get the ball over the wall. Llorente is back I think?

    We definitely should be winning this, and i'd be pretty confident of us doing just that. It won't be easy, as Swansea are fighting for survival, and you know Siggy will score, but i still think we'll be too strong for them.

    3-1 with Son, Toby and Alli getting our goals.

    Is Wanyama out?

    Be interesting to see if Dier can get back to last yours form in the dcm role.

    Who would replace Dier at centre back? Wimmer the obvious choice but we know how averse Poch is to playing a left footer at right centre back.

    Would he go to 4 at the back again? Or would Sissoko come into midfield? Not sure how I feel about that.

    Hopefully Viktor makes it anyway. As someone else said, he is made of concrete.

    be worth a punt for Son to score anytime!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,897 ✭✭✭ slegs


    Son to score 2 here...

    Read the other day that we've only started our strongest 11 in 2 games this season, we are used to rotation


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 21,769 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kiith


    I think it'll be back to the 4-2-3-1.

    Toby and Jan at the back, start Tripper along with Davies, and (assuming he's fit) Mousa and Dier in the center. Jansen up front with Son, Alli and Eriksen in behind. I would like to see N'Koudou though.

    Alderweireld to score 2 or more at 250/1.

    This is a huge game for all the right reasons. Win it and we are possibly 4-5 points behind Chelsea. If Chelsea win we are 7 points ahead of City in fourth place and 11 points ahead of fifth. Swansea at home won't park the bus and we should have enough to get past them.

    If Victor is fit he should partner Dembele in CM with 5 at the back. Eriksen and Alli as our most creative players have to start and I would play Son up front. Son isn't Harry by any means but he does seem to shine against the lesser teams. There is too much to lose to play Janssen in the hope he will suddenly become a prolific goalscorer and I think he could be very effective if he comes on against tired opponents. I would play Walker instead of Trippier on that team. He was rested on Saturday and will be a ball of energy. Trippiers delivery is way better but it's not like we will have Kane up there to profit so I think Walkers energy would be better at breaking down Swansea's defence.

    Swansea have lost 7 home games out of 15 scoring 21 goals and conceding 30 (2 a game!). We are good enough to get 3 and I think we will probably concede also so I am guestimating a 3-1 win and onwards and upwards! COYS!!

    Edit: I forgot I wanted to mention Sissoko. I'm afraid that bold experiment was finally put to bed last Saturday. The usual atrocious display was probably expected, crowned with that laughable attempt at an open goal, but the final nail for me was watching the goal celebrations. Sissoko joined in but looks like a fella that knows he is an imposter. Its as if someone told him that his house was burning down, he had a face like a wet weekend in Ballina.

    Aye. 4 at the back for this one. Swansea are no great shakes upfront.

    Hugo out,Wanyama out.nearly down to bare bones but still a decent team.....coys.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,495 ✭✭✭ Glebee


    Sissoko starting. Not sure about three points here.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,456 ✭✭✭ The high horse brigade


    Chill. Vorm played for Swansea, he's guaranteed a worldie

    We really don't want to be going near that bench looking for a game changer. After tonight we have Watford on Saturday, then Bournemouth both at home before the cup semi. We will surely have Kane, Rose and Wanyama back by then. Whisper it, but if Deli and Eriksen can keep delivering over the next few matches, things are going to get awful interesting.

    I've just gone and jinxed it, haven't I?

    Big night for our season. Good to see llorente out. 3 points very important. A good performance is secondary but would also be nice.

    City just equalised against chelski. We really need to win tonight COYS!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,515 ✭✭✭ MonkieSocks


    We playing well, final ball letting us down.

    No panic just yet.


    We might need to go 3 at the back in the last 15mins if we don't equalise.

    ..............Vorm
    ......Dier - Toby - Jan
    Walker - Dembele - Alli - Davies
    .........Eriksen - Son
    ...........Janssen​

    We need a big 45 mins now, it's vital we get 3 points tonight


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,515 ✭✭✭ MonkieSocks


    WE need Big Jan in the middle, crosses going in and no one on the end of them

    Not good enough at the moment. Back to being so wasteful in the final 3rd. Swansea will just sit back and try soak the pressure up, and counter us all night.

    Need someone to step up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,097 ✭✭✭ golfball37


    Not a bit surprised sadly. The same as West Ham last year. The minute the door opens we refuse to walk through it


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,503 ✭✭✭ 2nd Row Donkey


    Gonna be one of those nights lads.
    We were due a bad performance/result.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 21,769 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kiith


    I think this is why people don't talk about Spurs as we'd like them to. Everyone still assumes we'll bottle it, and on tonights showing, they aren't wrong.

    Also, whoever is commenting on the stream I'm watching is an absolute idiot.
