    Should be looking to wreck this lot on the break. Punish every stupid mistake they make and keep it tight at the back.

    3 goals for United from Manchester, one for the hubcap thieves from the Mersey.

    Fucking international break. I'm sure we had this lot after the break last season too. Just makes the break all the more infruiating.

    Expecting a very tight game. We will, of course, look to be solid at the back first then hit them on the break.

    Yeah not for from that. Young may have done enough to keep his place the last couple of games but Damian would offer more defensively. Personally I'd prefer either Mata or Martial to Mkhi.

    Don't think Mata has much of a chance in this one. Jose will be looking for pace on the break, and my nan's quicker than Mata.

    But Juanfield?

    I know what you mean, the pace is an issue. But if it's just pace then Martial is faster than Mkhi and more likely to score on the break. For all Mkhitaryan's good points he does have a tendency to make a balls of breaks we're on.

    I wouldn't be concerned. You'll sit deep and look to hit on the break. We'll attack attack attack and create chances but miss them while leaving gaping holes at the back. It's your first big test, but this lack of clinical finishing right now is really hurting us. My confidence may change as we get closer, but right now I can't see past a United win or a draw.

    I'm the same and it's really unusual and a bit disconcerting to be going into one of these games confident.

    They'll raise their game and beat us 3-1.

    The cunts.

    Wonder if there's any chance of Pogba making a surprise return for this...

    I'm strangely confident about this game - I think we'll see the best of Mou.

    We'll probably set up for the counter, which means pace out wide - will we finally see a front 3 of Martial - Lukaku - Rashford?

    The only way I see them hurting us is from a screamer from out far. I don't think they have enough quality to unpick our defence, or by getting in behind.

    Will we set up as a 4-3-3 or with 3 at the back?

    I hope it's not 3 at the back. We need out balls and with three at the back you either sacrifice runners up front or the midfield completely.

    I'll be at this, toying with the idea of getting a Klopp Football Genius banner sorted for our end. Thoughts?

    Seems a little like copying to me, but then that wouldn't at all be unlike your lot.

    Fancy a beer? I'll be there too. But if you're wearing a half and half scarf you can fuck right off. I know how much you love them.

    Not if you play 343, rather than 352.

    What happens in that scenario of you're not in control of possession which realistically we won't be? Your wing backs end up further back so it's a 5 2 2 1
