At least Raph's starting, we've got an injection of quality into the starting lineup compared to the last 2 games, not to mention Kalvin's back. That also means Klich will be getting further forward where he belongs. Feeling better right now, this will be better than what we've seen the past couple of performances.

Exactly my thought when I saw the team sheet. Who is playing at 10?

Agreed, a point would be a good result tonight.

Fully agree, he's not been out with injury, just Covid quarantine protocol. How does Alioski start before Rodders :?:

Good call that's the way I see it as well.

I actually hoped that with Dallas playing 300 mins in these never-ending international matches MB would finally give Leif a chance at LB and put Dallas on the bench.

I say the same. Alioski must be at left back. He wouldn't play Alioski on the wing ahead of Costa

He'll never leave Dallas out unless its enforced

I hope that's the case, but MB has stated he sees Raphina primarily as a winger. If he's in at 10 then surely Costa would keep his place ahead of Alioski on RW?

Need to get at them from start to finish, put a boot on their necks and not take it off.

Has to be that Rodrigo is not 100%

Looks like no number 10, with a 3 man midfield

Seems that way, I'm astonished that he's benched Costa, even though I was hoping Raph would get a go.

Can you imagine the quality when we get Raphinha and Rodrigo in the same lineup? I think it would have happened today, but guessing Rodrigo is not quite a 100%

With Lacazette being benched, that undoubtedly means that Abaumeyang will move from the left and play at 9.

That's big danger for us as he's due some goals.

I'm so chuffed for Kalvin getting all this big stage praise and recognition. His career's been made by Bielsa.

Not really a must-win for us tbh, better we not take risks.
