    No, we've only got Wigan next week

    I'd say its a good chance to go full strength, get the tie won in the first leg and rest a load for the 2nd leg

    Yes, full strength for this and then 6 days off. That's nice.

    Wouldnt underestimate Basel , they have a good record against English teams , a score draw wouldnt be the end of the world , quite sure we would finish the job at Casa Etihad.

    They have a lot of pacey athletic players so full strength.

    Totally confident that Pep and this team won’t make the mistakes we made in the past against Wigin

    Don't know much about Basel but this won't be easy. Hope Silva and Delph are back for this one, apart from that same team as today.

    Don’t know much about them tbh but expect Pep has a plan. Glad second leg at home just in case.

    More chance of serg not getting 200 goals than us not going full strength for this. This is the game for the owners 0-3
    Great trip for the travelling blues

    Full strength side, hopefully settle the tie and rest the key players in FA Cup before the Carabou final.
