Excellent team considering! Hopefully Thiago can be a sub for the CL Final if we get there.

He's touch and go for next season, we'll have to see next week

Our starting XI is good but our injury difficulties are highlighted with that bench.

Frustrating Thiago is still not even ready for the bench.

Shaq injured again?
Football without fans is nothing.

We've won 18 titles, 5 European Cups, 7 FA Cups, but today must be the greatest victory of all.

Not sure that team was leaked. Hardly rocket science to guess at that given who's available.

Shaq injured again. Just doesn't seem to be able to handle the training let alone matches.

Leaked team correct. Jürgen won’t be happy that this is happening again.

Good to see Jones getting more minutes.

I think most fans would have predicted that team anyway.

No way would a coach do it. A player shouldnt either mind, but we know one did in the past.

No Shaq

Wonder whats up with him.

Bench is a bit lacking and midfield is as strong as it can be but maybe not the solidest defensively. Nothing wrong with the attack though.

Defense is stronger than expected but obviously missing Trent

It was a shocking tackle. Lucky to escape with a few weeks out.

Gutted for Shaq, would have been an opportunity again for him tonight

Not sure what people were expecting with the bench, we’ve got a few injuries. It’s what’s available.

The bench is very weak, but to be expected with all the injuries we have - Shaq, Trent, Henderson, Salah, Thiago, Gomez, Virgil - crazy stuff.

Let's just hope we can bring everyone on for minutes when we are 4-0 up :D

I don't think people were expecting anything much better but they were likely hoping we'd see Shaqiri and Thiago.

Whoever it is needs to be read the riot act. It's clearly someone in coaching/playing staff. Wouldn't surprise me if it's a younger player in the first-team set-up

Thought Cain was a cert too.

Didn’t Clarkson play yesterday too for the 18’s? I know Cain was left out the u23 squad.

Was expecting Shaqiri at least since we didn't know he had an injury, and Thiago on the bench would have been a special Christmas wish

It originally took longer to settle down that they expected. They want him to be strong enough to come back for the rest of the season not just one game, so they are taking their time with him.

Shaq’s a miss, but was anyone really expecting Thiago he hasn’t been in team training has he?
