Dugout Discussion

Dugout Discussion – West Ham vs Man United

A hectic afternoon with points aplenty will hopefully continue with the tea-time kick-off at the London Stadium.

With Sergio Aguero emerging from the bench to return a goal and potential bonus points at the Etihad, our attention now switches to the red side of Manchester and their own talismanic goalscorer – Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Heavily backed by FPL managers once again, the Swede takes on the Hammers with 24.1% of the Gameweek 20 armbands strapped to his bicep.

Elsewhere, Jose Mourinho recalls Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo at centre-back as two of five changes to his line-up; Henrikh Mkhitaryan earns his second successive start.

For West Ham, Andy Carroll drops to the bench having started the last four Gameweeks. Mark Noble and Andre Ayew also drop out as Pedro Obiang, Manuel Lanzini and Sofiane Feghouli earn starts.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

    Llorente dropping tonight (6,4), I got him when he was 6,3. Will I loose 0.1? Your help is appreciated!

      You won't lose anything unless he drops to 6.2

    Can only afford to do this tonight - might it be madness before seeing what happens tomorrow / Wednesday?

    Cedric + Fletcher ----> Amat + Phillips

    Rest of my backline is:
    Francis, Evans, Alonso, Pieters

    In goal:
    Valdes, Pickford

    Thoughts?

      No.
      I think when Walcott is back, Sanchez will take his place.

      The face of a man who finally realises you need to play your best team in almost every game in the epl as it us so competitive. Tbf this is the first season where he can't rest players against teams that he knows he is going to beat.
      Leaving kun and silva on the bench today was ridiculous considering their upcoming fixture schedule

    Drop Hazard or Eriksen to bring Phillips and allow Origi > Lukaku?

    The refs take away a good Ibrahimovic goal on Saturday, then give it back today when he's offsides. Go figure. This season is hard enough without the referees fouling things up even more.

      Sorry about that, that was my fault last week as I captained him.

      When I didn't captain him the week before and this week he got an offside assist and an offside goal.

      I also broke siggy who had three blanks in 11 gws before I brought him in from where he got 4 blanks in a row.

      Also if you are a player down in your luck and needing a goal you need to be playing knew if my defenders, ine cs lost to leadbitter goal v utd (first in how long?), two cs lost to borini goal v utd, two cs lost to long goal v Wba (first since may).

      Rant over
