0-0 out on penalties.

But I've got a ticket (on general sale for £30).
Please don't tell me it's going to last 120 mins + pens.

After the last three matches I've watched - something has to give!

Bakayoko hat trick!

FA Cup should not be a priority. Play the fringe players, and mix in more kids. Nobody starting this week-end should play in this one.

Caballero 

Sterling Luiz Ampadu Zappacosta

Musonda Bakayoko Drinkwater

Hudson-Odoi Batshuayi Pedro

If we lose, then so bit we don't have to worry about more games at times we don't want them. If we win (with that team), then many of these players will have been given a massive confidence injection. Nothing to lose! Then we can play a fully rested first XI against Brighton, hopefully with a more attacking outlook:

Courtois

Azpi Christensen Rudiger

Moses Fabregas Kanté Alonso

Willian Morata Hazard

                            Caballero 

          Sterling      Luiz.      Rudiger

Zappa       Ampadu      Barkley     Kenedy

     Musonda.     Michy.    Hudson-Odoi 

 

A lot weaker than what we’d normally play but if that team can’t be Norwich then we don’t deserve a cup run.  Besides some of those kids have earned it

I'd be really surprised if Conte goes for so many kids and fringe players in his lineup. It's a nice thought, I suppose, but I think that he'll want to win this one, so expect a pretty-close to full strength side.

Yes.  The first leg team appeared to be designed to kill the game in 30 mins and bring on the kids (which is what we all want).
So I'd also expect something similar.

Agreed, unfortunately.

Are you hoping Bakayoko is going to inspire drag those young kids over the finishing line?? (emoji face peesing with laughter).
