    Bloody obvious.

    Mancini dropped Pontilimon for the final against Wigan. Hart was beaten by a header that Pontilimon would have plucked out of the air.

    The Engineer kept his promise and played Caballero against the dippers. He saved three penalties in a row to win the shoot out.

    Bravo also has a very good record in shoot outs this season.

    It won't get to the shoot out,that is the point,that is the difference between the 2 keepers,we wouldn't play bravo against the arses in the league so why v the same team in a cup final,makes no sense to me

    The Carabao Cup Final is now a must win. Otherwise with the possibility to end up the season winning only one trophy after all this hype and high expectations might lead to considering the season outcome as a failure

    Never a failure if we win the premier league. Just slightly disappointing if we don't win anything else.

    Bravo will be gone come the end of the season, we should play Ederson from now on

    They gonna play Ospina instead of Cech.
    Tbh I am much more worried about unforced errors from defenders like just toally giving the ball away like Stones can do sometimes or Walker brainfuck like yesterday etc.

    Arsenal have some good attackers that can punish even half mistakes. I wouldnt trust Stones for this game. Ota-Laporte or Ota-Kompany duo for me.

    It's barm so STFU.
    Sane's lethal when he's up for it but to become a truly world class player he can't pick and choose his matches. Even allowing for him being short of match fitness that was a very casual 45 minutes last night but I'd still be inclined to start him on Sunday alongside Sterling and Sergio.

    The only positive we can look forward to is at least they won’t try to kick lumps out of us from the first whistle.
