    I'd put Rodwell in Silvas position and Silva in Negredo's for that team.

    But, I'd probably play

    Pantilimon
    Milner
    Kompany
    Lescott
    Clichy
    Navas
    Rodwell
    Yaya
    Kolarov
    Silva
    Dzeko

    with Hart, Nastasic, Zabaleta, Boyata, Garcia, Negredo, Nasri (if fit) or Guidetti, again if fit.

    Try and win the game in the first hour then rest Yaya Kompany and Silva.

    THIS THIS.
    Dzeko had played full 90 min in last two games. Negredo 35 min ( Crystal P. ) + 60 min ( Swansea ) ( almost one game less ). You can not play player ( Dzeko ) who did not play two monthes no games. Three games in a row in a week. It is the best chance Guidetti will get and he deserves it. TO bad Jovetic can not play. In second half play Dzeko, Silva and Nasri if needed. I would also give Lopes at least 30 min.

    Yes - that's the team i would expect to play Blackburn, except maybe Nastasic for Kompany.

    Is there a decent car park at the ground or nearby?

    Referee is Oliver.

    Happy even though we moan, to have a Prem ref rather than some lower league one who wants to make a name for himself.

    away ground guide is helpful but the general gist is park and walk...if you want a flyer afetr the game

    they operate the 1 hour lock down close to the ground.

    first car park off the 65 for me

    I'd expect something similar to the Leicester line up, with possibly Pants & Clichy playing.

    Pants
    Boyata Komps Lescott Clichy
    Navas Garcia Rodwell Milner
    Silva
    Dzeko

    Although Navas could probably do with a weekend off considering his game time and work rate recently

    The work at Victoria Station has now finished so ought to be no problems with the trains beyond the usual lack of capacity . They have put on an extra train by the looks of it (10.29) . As others have said , journey 50 minutes and 20-25 minutes walk to the ground . Plenty of pubs in centre and a few on the way to the ground .
