Think we can safely file this one under, "must win" 

Especially with Arsenal hopefully losing to City on Sunday, unfortunately we play them next in the league followed by spurs!

Would love us to change formation for this one and maybe give a odoi a start but can’t see it happening . 3 changes from the disaster midweek alonso for Emerson Barkley for Kovacic and Willian for pedro all to predictable

Need to play Barkley or RLC in the midfield. At least there is a chance they migth score.

I would be tempted to play CHO - I am not one of those who think he is the answer to all our prayers, but if he plays, at least he will go on the outisde of his full back and get a cross in, rather than coming inside every time.

Yes, because Zola's got a stellar track record in management. Good idea.

Personally I'd be going; 

                             Arrizabalaga

Azpilicueta   Rüdiger   Christensen   Emerson

           Kovacic  Jorginho  Loftus-Cheek

          Hudson        Higuain       Hazard

Subs: Caballero, Alonso, Kanté, Barkley, Willian, Pedro, Giroud

I don't see it as likely though but feel we need to inject some much needed enthusiasm and pace into the side. Midfield in particular is far too stale with Kanté, Jorginho and Kovacic. 

This is a great time for CHO to get some game time in the league. Sure it's a game that means a lot and it's a high-risk strategy from Sarri given that we can hardly afford to lose three on the trot. But at the same time the current players aren't doing the job. I'd be inclined to bench Hazard as he's been shocking lately and ruins more than he gives us at the minute. But neither Pedro nor Willian has been doing fantastically lately either so it's not so easy to leave Eden out.

I think that we will see this;

                      Arrizabalaga

Azpilicueta   Rüdiger   Luiz   Alonso

            Kanté  Jorginho  Barkley

        Pedro        Giroud       Hazard

I'm guessing Alonso/Emerson and Barkley/Kovacic alternating now we have 2 roughly equal priority games a week.
I can't see any low priority games again in FAC (Man U), LC (final) and EL  (knockouts).

But I can imagine CHO playing - especially after not being kept off bench at Bournemouth.  Plus he doesn't wander from the wing like the others which seems to be the new instructions.
I can even see Hazard dropped to make a point.  Pedro or Willian, don't know

                   Arrizabalaga

Azpilicueta   Rüdiger   Luiz   Alonso

            Kanté  Jorginho  Barkley

        CHO        Giroud       Pedro
