Henderson, Gini & Trent are back so we are going to be much better off. Bournemouth are no mugs ands it's another difficult game. Hopefully our home advantage and having important players back gets us into winning ways again.

Can't be arsed with this game. Cup final for Watford and they're in better shape than we are so they should win. Even if it was a cup final for us I wouldn't back our players to be arsed because they're mostly shithouses and it'll take more than one "well it looked like they were up for it at least" performance against City to convince me otherwise.

My hope is that the players try and show some extra fight and loyalty to the manager in light of the circumstances around this game. My expectations are less than zero.

Kenny and Davies must keep their places as I trust them to actually give a fuck. If Walcott starts then I might just switch the game off. Happily see him never pull an Everton shirt on again at this point. Get Lookman out there or Richarlison and Bernard in the wide positions. A midfield three worked well last time out, think it's worth persisting with so Sigurdsson stays on the bench unless Silva wants to try him as a false nine which couldn't be much worse than trying to play Tosun or Calvert-Lewin as a lone striker with no service.

Going to be difficult, but this is a game we must not lose. The last thing we need is to give Southampton breathing space ahead of us, especially if other results go against us.

Bournemouth are terrible away from home so we should be winning this comfortably. Hopefully got a couple of players back in the starting 11. Not sure if it's too soon for Trent?

Didn't realise they'd lost their last 8 away!

Should stroll this...

Trips to Liverpool, Huddersfield and Arsenal before they come here. If they lose at Huddersfield we all know what's happening.

Yeah were not beating them. Standard. Still can't believe they're the only team we've not beaten since getting promoted. Shameful.

I really take nothing for granted when it comes to playing teams that everyone thinks we should beat. TAA and Gini trained and I really hope they get back in the squad for this one so that we can start to get our best XI out on the pitch. Anything but a win and we're going to start to unnecessarily apply pressure on ourselves. Would be nice to think that Chelsea do us a solid here but that game should really be out of sight and out of mind.

Keita needs a rest or a kick up his backside to get back into gear like he did when he first started playing because his touch is poor and his passing is looking terribly sloppy. Even impact players like Shaqiri look a bit off it but this is a testing period and I really hope we start to see an up-turn soon.

Özil, Auba, Xhaka and Ramsey out...

3 at the back for Huddersfield away is silly no need for it. Think Huddersfield have got a chance today, we look short on the bench as well no impact players.

Özil "ill" again, he has to be moved on this summer, no point wasting time now.

On the bench. Gutted to see Keita keep his spot tbh

I always say that Gini doesn't finish enough of his chances but what a goal.

Complete dominance after they forced Alisson into an early save.

Coming out in the second half and putting this to bed is vital now and getting Trent a run-in if possible as well. We've run the show even though they've been rather compact and that's a good sign considering who we're playing next week.

I was never a big fan of Iwobi, but he has had a very good season under Emery. He has got a lot of undeserved flack recently when I think he has been one of our better performers lately.

Mkhitaryan also playing well, I do think he is a good squad player but it's just the wages he's on which is the issue just not worth it.

It's only Huddersfield but we do look a lot better with wingers, need to be looking at one or two in the summer.

Is this actually true or a wind up? 😂

Spent the last 45 minutes mostly trying to find a stream, apparently it's been an even game though.

Think he's marginally offside when Milner crosses the ball in as he comes back from an offside position on second look.
