We're probably better off just forfeiting this one and taking the 3-0 loss. Going to be a lot less painful than watching the pathetic football we've served up lately.

Fortunately I'm away this weekend for my eldest daughters birthday, so I won't be able to watch. I might ignore the score entirely and then I'll never need to know how bad it is.

I've been positive up to now, but I am now very worried for what's going to happen with this squad and manager. I REALLY hope Sarri is backed in January and can bring in players more suited to his system and striker or 2 we can actually rely on to score. He also needs to start working on a plan B asap.

You want to leave out Kante for the game where his best attributes will be most required? Odd.

I do too. He is off form and playing in a position he is not great at.

If we were going to play him to do the job he is best at, then of course he starts.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't 'want' to do anything of the sort. Kante's 'best attributes' don't count for much when he's being played  as he has been recently.  Playing in his best position, then he's a nailed-on starter.

You're going to tell me that is the holding midfielder, despite him always having played with a defensive midfielder, not as the defensive midfielder, ever since he landed in England.
