We all know that given any 'normal' situation, Jose plays for a draw here - Ramires in midfield, low block, Cesc as no10 etc.

However, given the fact we drew against Swansea, another draw could potentially see us 4 pts behind Arsenal and United. Will this provoke Jose into taking the game to City and actually trying to beat them??

We'll not go hell for leather but it's a bit reductive that playing that way is considered playing for a draw.

We'll probe for a win without leaving ourselves open.

I'll be surrounded by loads of northerners watching this one!

Would put Ramires in a 3 man midfield. Think we look shaky in defense currently.

My team would be

Begovic

Ivan Cahill Terry azbi

Rameris matic fabregas

William costa hazard

Subs blackman, falcao, Oscar, zouma, remy, mikel, Moses

26 mins in and fernandinho has already committed two clearly bookable offences involving fouling to prevent a clear breakaway for West Brom. Two fouls given but no cards. None.
