A consequence of playing twice in 49 hours.

 

Doesn't look a great side but we thought that about West Ham away last season. We have enough up front to create.

Makes you wonder. If Palace play the same team they did Saturday, will they be so knackered that they're worse than effectively our second eleven?

I would rather have Fuchs than Thomas. Experience plus height over a good attacking set peice team.

Set pieces are gonna be vile. I'll be behind the sofa if anyone needs me.

Exactly this, plus we have another game on Sunday too!

 

During this period it's more about results than performances, and grinding results out. This is for sure a weak team from us, but being fresh is important, as proved last season against West Ham.

No Castagne at all, so must have got injured as he looked hurt against Man United. Cengiz still suffering from a hamstring too sadly it seems.

Don’t think so - Rodgers said after Utd they’d think long and hard whether Castagne could play twice in 48 hours after coming back from a severe hamstring injury

I’m just shocked there isn’t even space on the bench for Slimani. 

I think it is safe to say we will never see him play for us again. If he can't make a squad on a day like this, he never will.

They made 5 changes.

 

Their fans seem pretty happy with their lineup on the whole

We always seem to go over board with the changes. I doubt the other premier league sides will be playing their reserves today. If we are serious about getting in the top 4 we need to win today.

I'd imagine it isn't easy for players to recover from slight knocks and issues in a short space of time. I think 72 hours is recommended as the minimum rest time between matches.
