Eh, he also didn't play Napoli away which is probably the biggest win of the season to date, and we were brilliant.

I wouldn't be surprised if Dave and Gundogan play tonight though, to give KDB a rest before United, and then Fernandinho gets a rest at Shakhtar we've given the entire midfield a game off then.
I wasn’t intending to give a full list of every fame that David had missed, I was referring to the 3 games where in my opinion we had been far and away the least fluid, and it was the 3 games I mentioned, all of which he solely or totally missed. If I recall correctly he came off the bench with about 20 mins left at Napoli and was a huge part in Napoli hardly getting the ball in that time. I think we miss him more than any other player when he isn’t there. That’s my opinion, and you haven’t changed it

Does the loaner rule say a player cannot play against his mother club or can an agreement be made between the clubs that let them play.I for one would love for Joe to play on Sunday if possible.

A little worried for one major reason- Darren Randolph.

He's a decent keeper who was benched for Hart, who has been utter gash for West Ham.

Now they have to play Randolph, who will see this as an opportunity to take back the job. We could see one of those big performances from a keeper because of this, and we'd have probably been better seeing Joe play for them.

We simply have to rotate and prioritise the derby, and it's time Gundogan turns up and delivers. Big week for the lad and last night wasn't a great start.

They sold Randolph to Middlesbrough, it will be Adrian

After they got their arse handed to them last night, I can only see a 5-5-0 formation from them. No need to play Magic Dave or KDB, prepare them to whoop the rags.

-----------------Ederson
Walker--Kompany--Otamendi--Delph
-------------------Danilo------------------
------------De Bruyne----Silva-----------
Sterling------------------------------Sane
--------------------Jesus------------------

They WILL park the bus and we need to be prepared for a long afternoon. I think Sterling will be the hero again because he's the best mover in the team and the hardest to defend against.

It's been a while since we handed out a thrashing and I think that's because we don't often start with a KDB-Silva-Sterling-Jesus-Sane front five.

Kev must surely be rested? And for Shaktar as well, preferably. He destroyed United at their place last season. Nice recuperation period, then an encore of that, please.
I wouldn't mind playing the two Silvas together. It seems to me that that's barely happened this season. But I wouldn't play Bernardo wide, he's wasted there. Fernandinho to be rested too – Yaya in as deep holding midfielder. Mangala (with some misgivings, but it is only West Ham…) in for Kompany. We need Vin's leadership for the derby.
That'll do.
