No Hernandez or Koch on the bench?

He has always done very well as the third centre back though

Wont be an easy game.

We didn't deserve to beat Burnley last time and they are the sort of direct hoof ball set piece team that has given us issues in the past.

MB could have gone with a back 3 of Llorente, Koch and Struijk, as Burnley will have Wood and Vydra up top.

Nice lineup, could argue with Koch over llorente or struijk but best to keep them settled. Same could be said for klich and rodrigo either way I expect a win today.

Probably the strongest side we've fielded this year.

And Koch (injured, perhaps?) and Rodrigo are still not playing. I'm really looking forward to mext year.

Koch would have to be in our 11 for it to be the strongest, maybe Rodrigo too
