    Exactly and there are 10 others in the side that need to perform as well

    I'm surprised that Garcia isn't playing after being presumably rested vs PV, perhaps he has a knock.

    Strange that neither Jesus or Aguero is playing. Sterling has been out of form recently and isn't the best at holding onto the ball with defenders up against him, so it seems a little strange if he's starting up front. Didn't he play against the rags in that game where we could have clinched the league and were 2 up at half time (I shan't mention the rest)? I suppose it's possible Mahrez could play up front but not sure if heavier has before. Personally, I'd have gone with Jesus for his pressing ability and movement.

    It's certainly never boring with Guardiola and he keeps us on our toes.

    Hopefully it works as he intends and we have a couple of goal lead to bring home.

    Look lads i'm not a sheep,i have my own opinion,i'm usually wrong but pep does have form for changing us for individual games and backfiring,use the ignore button

    That's the most annoying thing. They are complete shit. They have massive obvious weaknesses and few strengths but it's like we've gone and picked a lineup expressely designed to emphasize their strengths and not expose their weaknesses. Our lineup is doing Ole's job better than Ole does.

    Not a very exciting lineup but it's the performance that matters.

    Absolutely not! He’s where he is for his proven managerial skills. I’m just guessing. Hahahaha
    I just want us NOT to make the same mistakes we did in the last game, as we could easily have been 4-0 down before half time. I’m hoping the lads come out like a train and smash the rag cnuts. We need to show them that their win was a one off.

    When we played Wolves having Sterling up top after we lost Ederson made sense on paper because of his pace. In theory it stops the other team getting to be too overzealous in attack. Neither Aguero nor Jesus can match that.

    I do wonder if that's played a big part in his thinking?
