It's a lot to ask, but it would be good to win this, put the group to bed and give ourselves the opportunity to rotate extensively against Sporting in the last game.

I think we might see something like this line up vs Schalke. Ramires basically the only change from yesterday. Wouldn't be surprised to see the sake XI from yesterday start on Tuesday though, particularly as Ramires wasn't fully fit yet.

We need to take charge in this game and be clinical with our chances. Our away form and results in the Champions League need to improve. Good opportunity to win the group Tuesday night. Let's take it.

Agreed. Win the game, go through as winners after 5 games. Annoyingly, the extra 2 points in Maribor would have meant we just need a draw.

Anyway, win then play some youngsters in the last game. Lovely.

NK Schalke?

They've been pretty up and down since Robbie joined them - he's trying to make them fitter and more compact but it's not really working yet.

At the weekend they raced out to a 3-0 lead and then ended up holding on by the odd goal. They've been involved a few odd goal games and will give us chances. Even if we weren't on a good run I'd expect us to beat Schalke in most matches. The only way they get anything is if we dose through match like last time.

I'd be happy with a professional job on them. 2-0

The beginning of a really important 11 days of fixtures.

I'd go as strong as possible and try and put CL qualifying to rest.

Cech

Branna-Cahill--JT-Luis

Cesc-Matic

Willian--oscar--Hazard

Costa

Hard fought 1 - 2 win.

Agree. This fixture is followed by a nice gap (probably the longest until the New Year) before the Sunderland game so a bit of recovery time is available.

I'd play Schurrle over Willian in this one myself but agree with everything else.
