Please no more Kovacic or Jorginho. Kanté, Mount and Gilmour has to be the way forward. Maybe Havertz when he's healthy again.

Hudson-Odoi also has to start, with either Ziyech or Pulisic on the other side. Abraham up front until Werner remembers how to play football.

Would start CHO and Abraham, probably with Ziyech.

James at right back.

Maybe Zouma and Rudiger at CB

Midfield.....dunno. mount plus 2 others.

Big, big game against Leicester.

If they win they go 9 pts ahead of us (29 pts to 38 pts).

If we win we come within 3 pts of them (32 pts to 35 pts).

Ham   

Vardy limped off holding his hamstring so he possibly doesn't feature.

This is a very, very important game. Whatever happens we cannot lose.

James    Zouma   Silva    Chilwell

          Kante   Gilmour   Mount

        Ziyech    Abraham   CHO

This feels massive for us, feels like the game that could turn our season back the way we want it to go. For me the back 4 picks itself and the front 3 should pick itself, it the midfield 3 that causes us so many problems. Mount plus 2 others, but who are the 2 others?! I’d be very tempted to put Gilmour in personally and I think I’d go with the same as @The_Ghost in terms of starting 11, although Havertz could be another option potentially.

Feels much too late to me.  It would be nice if we produced our first barn storming performance of the season and beat a very good team.
But we have been so remarkably consistent this season, I can't see it happening.

Perhaps it was those Sevilla and Man U 0-0 draws, when it seemed we abandoned all intent of dominating games, and let the team that made fewest mistakes win.

Normally I would agree, it's too late in the season, but the way this season is going out, I would say we still have a chance of turning things around - if for example, we put a run of 5 to 6 wins together, I imagine the table would look very different for us.

I'm not suggesting we will or even can, but wins build confidence and strange things have happened, especially this season.
