    Evans
    Soyuncu
    Chilwell

    Ndidi
    Tielemans

    Perez
    Maddison
    Barnes

    The only change I would have is Choudhry in for Albrighton. Having Gray and Praet there if we are chasing it is enough but Hamza if we need to squeeze out a result for me.

    Absolutely the same team.

    Undecided how this could go. Obviously I know how I'd like it to go. Everton have been on a poor run, Silva is under pressure, will they decided to go for it or is the team really not playing for him?
    Does the wounded animal bite back or do we put it out of its misery?

    FoxesTalk had a link to the Everton match thread, they're pretty much expecting a rout.
    One poster asked what was our playing style, the response was a winning one!

    Today is the start of a crazy run of fixtures. I think after today Brendan will start rotating

    Team unchanged as expected, although Choudury replaces Gray on the bench.

    Hooe that wasn't a big night out in Nottingham!

    Interesting now - Perez I thought was quite poor again (Dont slate me - my opinion). Do you persist because we’re winning or time to change? To me I think you just don’t change a thing

    I’d say probably give Nacho more chances off the bench as with Gray and work and give him plenty of minutes. Rather than change the starting 11 that is working.

    Not at our best but great that we can win with graft too. Liverpool have been winning playing badly for weeks. Great performance from Nacho and no way offside. Irresponsible of the Lino to put his flag up and risk affecting the outcome but fortunately VAR saw sense.

    I think the team will be rotated now. Fixture list is too heavy not to now

    on Perez he started the game well but faded as it went on and was rightly subbed.

    Well, what a finish. Now we know how it feels to be a Liverpool fan, late VAR decision for a winner although should never have been flagged in the first place. Thought Ndidi was immense. Again the game changes after Perez goes off, he must be wearing them out first.

    Jamie Carragher said it yesterday that its the best he has ever seen Iheanacho and I think we all agree. He looked sharp and confident from the first minute he came on. Puel never gave him a fair chance up front and the lad never looked comfortable

    Brendan has said all the right things about him but other then the cups never played him until yesterday

    If Iheanacho kicks on then it really adds considerable firepower to our frontline and stops all the fears over Vardy missing a few games

    Really pleased for Nacho. Hope he reignites his career here. Needs plenty of minutes off the bench first. Shame successive managers have never given him a chance

    Also on Ndidi, is it just me or is he looking more like how Kante played? He seems to drive forward with the ball a lot more recently and start many attacks rather than just winning the ball back deep and distributing it. More box to box than ball winner only. He’s really come on in his on the ball ability

    Lets not kid ourselves into thinking that Nachos assist wasn't a scuffed shot <laugh>

    Better touches from him today, more confident play, just needs to get the ball under control quicker. Natural finisher.

    Barnes quiet again, couple of mazy runs, needs to start exploiting the space between the CB and the wingback more often rather than staying so far wide.

    No Vardy would obviously be a blow to us. However, even without vardy's goals this season we've still scored more goals or equal than Arsenal.... more than everyone other than Man U and villa and that's only 1 goal difference <laugh>

    Isn't it nice to have a manager who has a plan B when things aren't working? :emoticon-0105-wink: None of our recent managers ever seemed to have one, even Claudio when we won the PL!

    Absolutely. In fairness to Ranieri, plan A worked pretty well most weeks :emoticon-0102-bigsm
