    Fully expect us to field an almost reserve side tonight, Thursday against Liverpool is the important one.

    Much as it would be hilarious to see Leicester drop out of the top four right at the end again, after showing us their bollocks all season and fapping off about how brilliant they and their manager are, it is even funnier if Liverpool fail to get top four.

    Be almost tempted to accept the loss.

    Think we should at least get the draw though, then go out to beat Liverpool on Thursday and hopefully that will be that regards top four.

    Team?

    Henderson
    Telles
    Tuanzebe
    Jones (assuming he's still alive)
    Williams
    Matic
    Fred
    Van De Beek
    Mata
    Martial
    Diallo


    Still good enough to beat Leicester tbf.

    That's just nasty that is <laugh>

    Surely you put your strongest team out this evening to all but secure second spot, then rest them in a meaningless fixture on Thursday :bandit:

    Is Martial fit?

    I think there'll be a reaction from the Leicester players after their recent debacles. And they always seem to raise their game against us this season.

    I'd be happy with a draw.

    Honestly the priority for me is to rest ALL the key players. And if we lose today I won’t cry <whistle> I’ll say well done Leicester, dust ourselves down and bust our guts to get back to winning ways in the next match ;)

    leicester or the RS? Really hard one. <laugh>

    Chief on the money regarding the team selection. Except for Jones and Martial who are long term injuries <whistle>

    is this the strongest ever bench that United have ever fielded? No substitutions please or at least until 75th minute or later. :bandit:

    I like Brendan Rodgers’ comment on the United team: ‘Ole has done the right thing. It is a great opportunity for him to assess the rest of his squad. Any team played from such a big squad is bound to be extremely good’. <laugh>

    I wonder whether anyone expected him to moan about the absence of the whole regular defence and midfield ;) I cannot honestly believe that Greenwood is starting.

    Brilliant goal by Leicester. Cannot blame the defence. The finish from Thomas absolutely sensational.

    We really should be doing better than this. 1 shot in the 2nd half to their 9.

    A draw would be ideal.

    He lacks any creativity.

    Also looks nervous every time he gets the ball.

    Then passes back.

    So, I guess this means that Liverpool will most likely not qualify for champions league. Let’s celebrate this great victory!!

    His confidence is shot to pieces, I think. He doesn’t have the mental strength to step up when all eyes are on him.

    I don't think he ever had it, I'm absolutely convinced that he was a signing forced on Ole, he certainly doesn't fit his 'type' of player
