Yeah United’s problems are evident to all, however they’ll be up for this one and they do have players that on there day can match anyone.


They really don't.

All the talk has been about Martinez but this is a game that will suit him.  It's Maguire they should be worrying about.

I suspect they'll have a chance to score at 0-0 as we always seem to offer those up.  If they score it they'll have a bit more resistance before ultimately fading.  If we score first it will be another landslide.

With a few players back I hope we go with the team that started the Community Shield with Allisson and Keita replacing Adrian and Thiago.  For me it's a game where keeping the ball and moving them around is more useful than snarling in their faces so keep Milner on ice.

Yeah can only echo previous posts. Must win and just get the job done. Even a scrappy 1-0 mo Salah penalty win will do me just fine.

Thanks Monslibpool.

We haven’t started the season well. Our performances have been ok but we’ve been a bit sloppy at times. Hopefully Gomez is fit as I’d like to see a strong and fast central defence.

Our midfield has looked weak since Thiago was injured. A fit Keita would be nice to either start or come off the bench.

If Firmino or Jota can’t start then I’d stick Salah up top and Elliott on the right wing.

A win is all important as we need to get our season started. United will be up for the game but if we pull ahead then I can see them falling apart. Two early goals from us would be good. United are as good as Fulham and Palace so I wouldn’t write them off; we need to dominate and take our chances.

Keita was great against this lot last time at the pit - a goal and an assist, and lots of great play before being brutally Pogba-ed off.

Hopefully more of the same from him but without the stretcher being needed this time

One of his best games for us. Starting him on Monday would be an obvious choice if it wasn't for a lack of match sharpness.

We need to score first. Do that we'll be fine. They score first, it'll be a shitshow of epic proportions with them doing whatever they can to stifle the game and generally be the twats we all know they can be/are.

Give them fuck all encouragement or hope and no hand-hold at all in the game. Have to be ruthless and relentless. In all departments we are superior to them but have to SHOW that. It goes for all other sides though, not just them. We need to get the belief back in the side and the only way to do that is to win games. Starting with this one. As statement wins go, there's few with more impact than beating them. Bumping these off is essential... So let's do it Redmen, eh?

If he wants to play a more possession based game with a higher line, then he absolutely has to drop the person he confirmed will be captain and play the little guy who struggled on his debut instead.

Always nervous for this game no matter how poor they are.

They kept a clean sheet in the 2nd half of their last game - might be an ominous sign ...

No way are we going to win this without a fight. Utd need to win or they've lost 3 in a row and have they ever lost their first 3 games?

Our midfield isn't poor - them losing their first three games..? Always a first time.

Precisely because we need to kick start our season, and it's them - we will of course put up a fight.
