    Play the strongest team possible but give Garcia and Foden game time as well , Pep will be pissed off with our performance against the Rags , need to get back to what we do best and dominate from the first minute

    Maybe sulking isnt the right word so apologies . -but his demeanour isnt great and his performances are terrible.....his mindset isnt strong enougb and he needs to step up if he wants to play with the big boys..he has had his develop time - now is time to show it...Sergio carried us for years pretty much from the moment he arrived and he has had bad spells but there have always been the feeling, performances where you knew he would get it back - i dont see that from GJ - he has potential like so many but as Pep has alluded to its about mindset and if Pep is saying it it means he is starting to question it with Jesus.

    Expectations for this one at rock-bottom. With 2nd place in the group on a knife edge, Zagreb have all the pressure and will look to be on the front foot from the off. Be ironic if we sit back, absorb their attacks and then score 1 or 2 on the counter!

    Not sure pep will play foden from the beginning or put him on the bench. Pep said this morning that although Phil is the greatest talent he has ever seen his feet don't touch the ground when sitting on a chair. He can't take the risk due to health and safety regs.

    Gundogan however is slightly taller so his toes touch plus he has a tache and foden can't shave yet.

    If Fernandinho, Silva and De Bruyne are anywhere near this I will be fuming.

    I understand that but it doesn’t make it a dead rubber match which was my point.
    You use that term when the result is meaningless for both teams.

    Cancelo - Walker - Otamendi - Mendy
    Doyle - Gundogan - Foden - Zinchenko
    Mahrez - Jesus

    I want to try Walker alongside Otamendi as a central pairing. Need to play Cancelo or what was the point of buying him and Mendy given a last chance.

    Gundogan with three young enthusiastic partners in midfield, and a chance for the front two to show they have got what it takes to merit a first team place.

    I agree but if we field a much weakened team then the other teams in the group will feel cheated. I think Pep will respect the competition.
