I think the problem is we have such a big squad at the moment, we need to give some minutes to the squad players. Further, a group win is worth something like £1m, so I expect the club to want us to take it at least semi seriously with all the expenditure and Covid related costs. 

We have already won the group

                Kepa 

Azpi Rudiger Tomori Emerson

      Gilmour Jorginho 

                   Anjorin 

Havertz                    CHO

                 Tammy

I would go for maximum rest and fitness. Not sure if Anjorin is in the bubble, or if that is even really a thing, if he can't play would even consider Christensen at DM. If there are any other youngster available have them on the bench, subs for the front three, gilmour and emerson later in the game.

I think he is saying that winning the game will earn us around £1m irrespective of the group

Actually, I just went and checked and it is more like £2.5m per win: 

  • Base fee for group stage: €15,250,000
  • Group match victory: €2,700,000
  • Group match draw: €900,000
  • Round of 16: €9,500,000
  • Quarter-finals: €10,500,000
  • Semi-finals: €12,000,000
  • Runner-ups: €15,000,000
  • Champions: €19,000,000

I personally cannot see us running out the youth in this one due to the prize money and due to us having lots of adult players that need minutes. Only player that I can see getting minutes that can still be called a youth player is Billy. Obviously, the likes of Werner, Chilwell, Silva, Zouma, Kante, Mount etc will get rested but I am not expecting players like Anjorin, Lawrence and Bate getting on other than from the bench and if we're comfortable.

Rennes can still qualify for the Europa league if they beat Sevilla so Krasnodar still have something to play for

No, they cannot as Krasnodar have the better head to head record so Rennes cannot finish above them. It is the same reason we are top no matter what happens on Tuesday.

Would endorse that selection
