Can Higuain play in the Europa league for us?

I believe so. 

There's no rule tying players to one club per European competition anymore.

Maybe our most important game this season - we desperately need to bounce back.

Kepa

Azpi - Luiz - Rüdiger - Zappa

Kante

Kovacic - Ruben

Pedro - Higuain - Hazard

Apart from Zaps on the left, which troubles me, I could go with that ....

He HAS to make changes for this, he HAS to drop Jorginho, he HAS to drop Alonso, he SHOULD drop Luiz, he SHOULD adjust the formation... will he? Definitely not all of it.

I would go with:

Kepa

Azpilicueta  Rudiger  Christensen  Emerson

Kante  Kovacic

CHO  RLC  Hazard

Higuain

Subs: Caballero, Zappacosta, Cahill, Ampadu, Pedro, Willian, Giroud

 

What I think Sarri will pick:

Kepa

Azpilicueta  Rudiger  Luiz  Emerson

Kante  Jorginho  Kovacic

Willian  Higuain  Hazard

Subs: Caballero, Alonso, Christensen, Barkley, RLC, Pedro, Giroud

Barkley will come on for Kovacic around 60 mins. Pedro will come on for Willian around 75 mins. Giroud will come on for Higuain around 85 mins. We will win 2-0 and Sarri will convince himself that his way is the way forward and the only way. We will lose to Man Utd.

Genuinely not sure if I'm going to watch on Thursday, may just cook a nice meal for Mrs MBIB to celebrate Valentine's day and we don't even celebrate Valentine's day.

^ At this late stage I'm rather pleased that I've managed to book a table. Not sure what the g/f will say... she hates snooker!

Last season under Conte we had Kante playing in his natural position. We lost 3-0 to Bournemouth, 4-1 to Watford, 3-0 to Roma, 3-0 to Barcelona, 3-1 to Spurs and if my memory serves me well we also lost 3-0 to City. 

We failed to qualify for top4. 

If people think taking Kante back to his normal position will magically solve our problems then I don't know.

The players are the common denominators and I feel that Sarri needs to be backed by the board and given the players he needs. 

I believe that Pep snubbed us because he didn't believe that our board would back him.
