Not conceding an own goal in the first 5 minutes will be a bonus. 

Getting to half time without conceding would be even better.

Getting to full time would be a miracle!

When you just say ‘1 win and we’re in’ it seems completely realistic. In reality though , it would take something sensational .

Lets be honest, beating Utd who haven’t lost in the league since Bruno Fernandes was signed will be incredibly difficult.

I could see Wolves drawing at the Bridge but it’s highly unlikely they will lose at home.

If we were to qualify from here, It would be the 2nd most unbelievable day in the clubs history!

 

- We have to play at 110%, every single player!

- We will need to break down a tough defence with a team that doesn’t create an awful lot.

- If we are somehow winning going into the latter stages, we will need to defend ridiculously good, every second their movement will cause problems and all 11 of our team will have to maintain  100% concentration, heart, commitment and physical capacity to keep up with probably one of the best front lines currently in the world.

 

All this with terrible form for 7 months and a defence consisting of:

- A 36 year old guy whose barely played in over a year and probably not even match fit yet.

- a youth kid who will be playing only his 3rd Premier league game.

- A Young defender whose come up from league 1 standard expecting to replace probably one of the top 5 RBs in world football.

 

If you told me we were 1-0 up in the 85th minute, I’d still think we’re 50/50 to make it, so make no mistake about it, its going to take an absolute miracle and a heroic effort to actually beat Utd. We will probably need to play at 110% and still get lucky in some situations and probably score out of a few half chances. Everything will need to go absolutely perfectly beyond any reasonable natural curve.

Or you could say:

With a Premier League winning Captain who has never let us down.

One of England’s hottest young talents who has burst into the first team, after captaining England at youth level and already has a Premier League assist to his name.

An England U21 International full back, who looks better and better with every game he plays and has the most tackles in the league since the resumption.

 

The poor form for the last 7 months is a bit of a stretch considering we didn’t play for more than 3 of those months.

 

We seem to massively overrate every other team in the league and underrate our own team. 
We have been above United for most of the season. Since the restart they have been better than us, no doubt, but they have played most of the bottom six and against teams not in the bottom 6 they have drawn with Spurs and Southampton and lost to Chelsea in the Fa Cup. Sheff Utd being the only decent team they have beaten.

We have been poor, there is no hiding that, but they haven’t been anywhere near as good as some make out. If we play well, I see no reason we can’t win this.

I think we will win 1-0. We need to keep it tight for as long as possible. Vards need to be on top form. We've got to be aware of the soft manulty aswell. Don't give the ref the choice of giving it!

I might be wrong but have we ever won a league game 1-0 under Rodgers?

Not in the PL.

 

Not sure about other comps

Birmingham in the Cup was. I do think it will be a cagey affair. Especially if Manulty just need a draw.

We haven't lost a home game on the last day of the season since 2006/07. We'll be sound.

Wasn't Tottenham at home in 2016/17 a defeat? 

 

Edit: I'm wrong we played Bournemouth on the last day and draw.

They will try and score, no chance of them playing for a 0-0 I don’t think, especially given 3/4 of our first choice back four are out. I can actually see it being whilst nervy, a reasonably open game until the first goal goes in at least.

Have we beat anyone placed above us under Rodgers?

Seriously????

 

how can we never have won a game 1-0 in a season and a half .......

Everton on New Year's Day 2019 away was our last 1-0 league victory. Incidentally, the last three in the league have all been away from home including wins at Chelsea and Cardiff.

 

Last 1-0 win was Birmingham in the FA Cup, with our other two FA Cup ties this season also finishing in a 1-0 scoreline. Therefore, we're nailed on for a 1-0 win on Sunday.

Ultimately I think in this game form goes out the window. It's a "cup final - winner takes all" it's more of a match up between BR and OGS. Whoever gets it tactically right wins in my opinion.
