B-team, or A-team for this?

Will Oakwell be playable by Thursday?

                         Kepa

Azpi - Rüdiger - Zouma - Palmieri

                         Kante

Ziyech - Gilmour - Havertz(or Mount) 

                CHO - Abraham

I wonder if TT will set the team up differently and see how things pan out, kind-a like a pre-season friendly

Hopefully Gilmour and Havertz can both get some game time.  Would be nice to see Zouma back in as well.  Feel like he was very unlucky to have been dropped in the was he has been.  

Barnsley could be interesting, I know we rolled them over earlier in the season, but no reason for them not to have a go at us this time.  They've got absolutely nothing to lose here.

I would imagine Tuchel wants to rest players, I would also think he wants to try and keep to the same system and formation, so will be interesting to see how many changes he makes.

I expect to see:

Kepa

James Christensen Zouma

CHO - Kante - Gilmour - Chilwell

Ziyech - Havertz

Tammy

Yep I think it'll be pretty close to this.  If TT genuinely does want to give everyone an opportunity though, we may well see Emerson on the left.

Yes I think both James and Chilwell could play the Azpi role or RCB/LCB in a back 3.

I don't know about others of you but the mere mention of Kepa in the starting lineup sends shivers down me. I'd really like to make a bit of a run in this competition and I honestly believe he's still got the ability to throw one last spoke in that wheel.

This could be seen to be an opportunity to play those in the periphery of the squad but I think it would be a mistake to play too many in the one game especially as they will not have played much, let alone together. I think Abraham is nailed on as will be Ziyech and/or Havertz but I would love to see Billy get a game in midfield.

I agree. I don't want him anywhere near the team. I think he will probably play though.
