    If Aguero is fit I fancy it'll be a three, two, three, two formation

    After Young's assault and playing against the dippers when not fit I'd take him to play against Udders to get his record and probably not before sadly.

    Team selections are going to be interesting for the remaining games. So many ways of looking at it, go for strongest team in every game and try and smash all the records?Or do you experiment with partnerships/combinations you might be looking at for next season? Or do you give youth some valuable experience? And then what about the sentimentalist giving starts or appearances to Yaya and anyone else that might be leaving?

    The players will want to smash records but its also inevitable now that some of the players' thoughts will be turning to the WC. Pep might lean towards those players who need games under their belt to secure a WC squad or starting spot rather than those who are certainties and might have concerns over fatigue and possible injuries. Probably full strength for Swansea but with a fair degree of rotation for the last 4 games.

    Don't see us smashing all the teams in these last few games like I think we would if we needed too as world cup conditioning will now factor into the equation for a lot of our squad but i do think we will put in a good performance and grab a few goals here. Team doesn't really matter, everyone will be buzzing still, for so many of our team it's their first major trophy and they'll go out to a party atmosphere and put on a show for us. Pep will make sure everyone gets in enough appearances to qualify for a medal of the last 5 games even if it's just sub appearances for a few minutes ut he won't go making sweeping changes.

    100% right. Also why would Pep give a fuck about a World Cup.

    Because his players do, and secondly because easing his players playing time now might prevent muscle injuries when they are at the w/c which would effect their pre seasons. He'll take a bigger picture view besides giving DeBruyne , Silva, Walker the some minutes e off shouldn't hurt too much against the teams we have left.
