We're a few more games away from Koeman getting binned so there's always that. All I can take from games these days.

It's gonna be another bus parking job by Mourinho, A draw would be a good result but a win over United at this stage could be vital for our confidence going forward.

Absolutely despise this fixture. We never ever beat West Brom at home. Away we've got a very tidy record, but at Leicester, West Brom get a result every time without fail. Even when we won the league they got a point here.

I'll be very surprised if it changes. This is where Shakespeare has to show what he's truly about. If he can't see after that Bournemouth performance in-particular that things aren't working and he persists with the same team and tactics then I think we need to look elsewhere. I can forgive mistakes. I can't forgive not learning from them.

Only King and Amartey as fit midfielder. Time to experiment with something different. Or bring in a youngster.

To be fair you could play Okazaki in central midfield and he’d do a decent job there.

Officially we have Morata and Kante out, with Drinkwater possibly fit. Palace with 0-17 and 7 lost out of 7 should be easy right? RIGHT? :/

Morata is definitely out?

Reports say he could be fit for Roma, however both are not confirmed as out.

Mane out, essentially one of our two teeth pulled straight out. If Utd don't beat us on Saturday then they aren't gonna win many points against the other top 6.

Mane, Lallana & Clyne out with Firmino & Coutinho not back from South America till Thursday night. 

We are gonna get royally fucked.

Lallana and Clyne haven't played in ages so they're not sudden misses or omissions to be fair.

It's absolutely beyond a joke that we're back in this situation again. It was beyond belief that it happened once, for it to happen again is scarcely believable.

Is Iborra injured too?

We effectively play Okazaki as a defensive number ten if that's possible. We're not really 4-4-2, it's more 4-4-1-1, or as I know it 4-4-Oka-1.

Interestingly they've had an incredibly favourable opening few games. I think they've played 7 of the bottom 9 so far.

I heard he missed a training session but could be wrong. King and iborra it'll be if he's fit.

Could be quite premature but I wonder how ready they consider Choudhury.

Pogba and Fellaini are out for United as well, so they'll be able to field a good team.

Going for a comfortable loss to United and any hopes of our backline containing their attack is a dream. Having said that anything is possible really and a draw would be what I want out of this but a loss is surely where its headed in our current form and loss of players.

As poor as we have been lately,  it would still be daft to play attacking football against us.  It makes sense to sit back and frustrate us.  Our defence will always give the opposition chances.  And who better to play that kind of football than Mourinho. 

Wouldn't be a bad idea to stick Dominic Solanke up top.  Looks more threatening than Sturridge.

Hoping Liverpool and Man Utd ends in a draw. To be honest, Mourinho might go to Anfield with that being his plan.

Our away trip to Watford will be difficult. Marco Silva is a solid manager and will know what he has to do to make us stuggle at both ends of the pitch, this is a manager that made Hull City come across as something other than an abomination of the team during his short time there so you know he's good.

Can see united parking the bus and scoring one on counter, liverpool's defense is weak and they are without their best player Mane so mourinho is going to frustrate them and score one on the counter. 

Havent seen a single watford match this season but Arsenal typically do well against lower end table teams so this should be a win, no excuses.

Solanke would pass more than Sturridge and not shoot from the touchline all the time to be fair.

In Fantasy Football I had a genius idea that once Aguero got injured I was going to replace him with Lukaku and make him captain as he destroys Palace then the following gameweek I was going to replace Lukaku with Morata and make him captain as he destroys Palace. Sods law Lukaku went missing and Morata is now injured.

Hopefully we can keep this down to a minimal 2-0 loss but put in a respectable performance to build confidence before we face Newcastle and West Ham.

On a side note at my Dad's old work they used to do a prediction league for just our results, literally win, draw or loss. Someone put us to lose every game and they won the league xD

Ndidi and Vardy both fit for us. That's a plus at least.

I swear I will flip if he starts that same XI we started at Bournemouth.

Southampton away, bit of a tough one.

They've been a bit unpredictable, we'll be solid at the back but not much quality in the final third. Can't see us scoring more than one goal. I'll go for 0-0 or a 1-0 loss.

The build up for the most boring "Derby" in England begins...United v Liverpool is more likely to put you to sleep

A goal within the first 10 minutes is vital for us. Without that I imagine there will be a lot of huffing and puffing from us but the bus will have already been well and truly parked so it will be very difficult to find a way through. Then we'll probably concede a stupid goal from a set piece or counter attack. Not confident at all given the form of both sides but we're due a league win against them and we're the first decent side they've played so who knows.

Boring but still the biggest league fixture in world football. 

Fergie used to give it a go and there were some cracking fixtures. Moyes, LVG & Mourinho however have made it such a turgid affair. 

0-3 United.

Not even true anymore, even if it was previously, Real v Barca totally eclipses it now. Liverpool been out the limelight for too long
