Be nice to get more than a 1-0 win in this tournament, be nice to really take it to them and get a few goals. I'd like to see:

Kepa

Zappacosta Cahill Christensen Emerson

RLC Fabregas* Kovacic

Pedro Morata CHO

Subs: Caballero, Luiz**, Kante, Barkley, Moses, Piazon***, Giroud

* Is he fit? He hasn't been in the squad and going by his instagram account he's had another injury.
** If Ampadu is fit I'd have him instead, but I don't think he is
*** If he is registered, if not take your pick from someone who is

I would keep Hazard and Willian away from this squad, given them a rest - Willian definitely needs it and Hazard should be wrapped in cotton wool in midweek. this team should be more than enough to get the result.

I'd be a bit pissed off if I were Drinkwater and were to find out that Piazon had been registered.  So I doubt it.

Kepa

Zappa Christensen Cahill Emerson 

Barkley Cesc RLC

Moses Morata CHO 

Sub: Willy, Dave, Kante, Kovacic, Willian, Pedro, Giroud

I know the above is not going to happen but I really feel at some point soon we need to get our priorities right. Losing important players in this game is just not worth it. I still maintain losing Pedro against POAK is a big reason we drew at WHU as he is the only other player than Hazard who is actually direct.

Soon.  We have 2 free mid-weeks before January (probably none if we get past Derby in LC).
The safe way is probably to collect the Europa points early and rest the whole team in the later games.

3 more points and I think the group is over (and we will have wins over each opponent - useful if it gets close).  Sarri can let the development team take over then.

Hazard out, and a doubt for Sunday.

Jorginho to be rested

Really hope to see CHO. Really don't expect to.
