By strong team I don't mean the strongest available, but one aimed at winning the tie, so not one comprised entirely of kids which has been suggested. Laporte, Zinchenko all need some gametime, for example. Gundogan is still in isolation I assume, so either Doyle is the sole DM in a 4-3-3 or one of Fernandinho or Rodri will have to start alongside him if we're sticking with 4-2-3-1.So you want us to play a strong team less than 72 hours before we play one of the fittest teams in the league? And if that means playing the likes of De Bruyne, Foden and Sterling then they’ll all have played 5 games in 12 days after the Leeds match.
I just can’t see Burnley being up for this match at all. They’ve only got about 12 fit players and they’ll probably have to rest their best ones to not risk injuring any of them.
