Must win if we want top 4 and must win because we owe this lot big time, as many others of you have said.

We'll be up against VAR and Man Utd, so it won't be easy, but I do believe we have what it takes to beat them, as long as we can actually start to create some chances. I expect Giroud to start after last night and in fact, I expect it'll be entirely the same team unless Silva is back.

Don't get the must win, certainly would help yet other teams chasing top four are also going to lose along the way before the end of the season.

I think we will draw against Utd.

Won a small bet yesterday on our match, got the score right.

Certainly a must lose with a win being a very pleasant bonus. 

If we are serious about a top dour charge we simply has to start winning against the top teams. What better game to start with than this one? 

Team is largely picking itself imo, but I'm a bit wary playing Alonso against Rashford and would perhaps chose Chilwell for this one.

 

                                                                 Mendy

                                                 Azpi Christensen Rüdiger

                                     Hudson-O Jorginho Kovacic Chilwell

                                                          Mount Werner

                                                                Giroud

Kovacic to take one for the team and put Fernandes into row Z early doors and get a yellow 

I would pay good money to see that!

on the down side; if the offence took place on the center circle, between the ref and VAR  they would signal a penalty to keep one of the PL's darling clubs happy :0)

                                                                Giroud

I think James will start at RWB to be honest. Utd are very dangerous on the counter and we are going to need someone who can win the ball back when they do. 

As for upfront, I am slightly torn on Giroud staring. For sure, he probably should, but the thing with Utd is that the McForehead and Lindelof are very poor against speed/tricky players. It may be we need to play a fluid False 9 system with Mount-Werner-Puli, to pull them around a bit. That said, if Giroud can do his backboard work, then that may be better.

Giroud did take Maguire to school in the Cup semi-final mind you.  And he'd previously had it all his own way up against a newly-installed Tammy and a poor Batshuayi.  I'd start Oli here tbh.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a change here, kept Alonso  as he is better for keeping possession though defensively weaker that say Chilwell.

Also think Zouma might replace Azpi for this one.

                                                                   Mendy

                                                 Zouma Christensen Rüdiger

                                     Hudson-O Jorginho Kovacic Alsono

                                                             Mount

                                                Giroud            Werner
