Not injured, but he looked to pick up a knock against Liverpool and I wouldn't be against resting him considering our options would be bare without him.

I think it's based on a comment by someone on Tuesday saying him, Vardy and Youri (IIRC) didn't travel. I think this was a day before the squad were due to travel, so it's probably not true.

 

I don't think he is injured, no. Chance he could be rested after he was limping in the Liverpool match.

Eh, Evans had a dead leg becase Mane ran into his calf muscle at about 40 miles an hour. 

 

Good luck to Rodgers picking a defence out of that mess! I've got myself in the mind set that I'll settle for scoring tonight even if we lose. The worst thing we can do is not score tonight.

 

I haven't watched any of Prague but know they've scored a few past very decent teams, so with us rocking up with a rag tag patched up defence I'm expecting us to concede a few. Hopefully the boys at the other end can do the biz. I'll take a Braga style 3-3 :D

Yep, the poster admitted that the 'did not travel thing' was simply a guess presented as fact. Which I might argue was not overly helpful.

Think we might go 352 and try to keep in mind it's a 180 min tie

 

                           Kasper 

 

             Amartey Soyuncu Fuchs

 

Albrighton    Youri    Ndidi     Thomas

              

                           Madders

 

                    Vardy             Barnes

I’m going to guess something like this, in a 3421 which changes to a 541 off the ball. Think something like this is fairly likely

 

Schmeichel

Amartey Soyuncu Fuchs

Albrighton Tielemans Mendy Thomas

Under Barnes

Vardy

Wonder if he’ll start Kelechi tonight and use Vardy as an emergency. Cant see Vardy being started 3 times in a week presuming he’ll be playing against Villa.

I'd be shocked if Kelechi doesn't start.

What I’m getting from this thread is that they are in good form. But aren’t they playing shit every week in the Czech league? Shouldn’t we have far too much for them over two legs?
 

Or am I missing something?

Yeah they're like Rangers. Not to be taken lightly be I'd be horrified if we don't beat them over 2 legs.

Kasper, VDC, Amartey, Cags, Fuchs, Ndidi, Madders/Tielemans, Hamza, Under, Nacho, Barnes. 

 

Potentially switch Madders and Tielemans after around 60 mins so they can both be reasonably fresh for Sunday. We have limited options with the amount of injuries we have so can see quite a few u23s on the bench tonight. Think we will only have Ward, Jakupovic, Albrighton, Thomas, Mendy as the other available first team players. 

 

Edit. Are Vardy and Evans in the squad?

Can't understand the calls for a back five, look at our form since the home defeat to Everton when we knocked it on the head. The worst performance came against Brighton (the one game since where we played the back five).

Well who plays right back? It'll be a fluid back 3/back 4 with Amartey and Albrighton changing position every so slightly.

It will be a fairly strong side tonight, these types of games have a habit of embarrassing PL teams if they don't take it seriously. Plus it is now at the business stage of the competition, so if anything efforts will be doubled.
