The EDS are out of the youth league so that doesn’t really matter. I think Palmer will definitely start and then hopefully McAtee, Lavia and Mbete will get some minutes off the bench. Maybe even Kayky.
Kayky isn't eligible. I don't think they will want to decimate the EDS side too much, performances haven't been great so they'll try and play that out tbh. Mbete/Lavia & McAtee are the spine of the team, cant see all 3 being pulled. JWE/Edozie maybe though.

Kayky isn't in the CL squad, I don't believe.

Mbete I think less likely, due to all our CB's being fit and some like Ake needing minutes. If its a dead rubber in the youth league as well though, it's worth throwing that game under the bus to get these lads a taste of first team involvement.

---------------------------------Steffen
Walker-----------Stones----------------------Aké-----------Zinchenko
------------------------------Fernandinho
--------------McAtee----------------------------Foden
Sterling------------------------Palmer-------------------------Grealish

I would expect something like that. Although I wouldn't be shocked to see a much more changed 11, like:

---------------------------------Steffen
Egan-Riley------Laporte----------------------Aké---------Wilson-Esbrand
------------------------------Fernandinho
----------------Lavia--------------------------Zinchenko
Palmer------------------------McAtee-------------------------Grealish

Still 5 subs in the champions League isn't it ? So should be able to let plenty of kids have a run out along with getting our returning senior players back up to speed.

I’d guess

Steffen

Walker
Stones
Ake
Zinchenko

Fernandinho
De Bruyne
Grealish

Foden
Palmer
one Sterling/Jesus/Mahrez


McAtee & Lavia off the bench.
The three Portugueses should stay at home.
