Good afternoon everybody,

With Pogba and Fellaini both injured this weekend I fully expect us to line up with 3 at the back.

I would imagine Jones and Bailly are certainties to start (if fit) and I think Smalling will get the nob over Lindelof.

I expect Valencia and Young to occupy the wing back positions with Herrera and Matic in midfield.

I think Rashford and Miki will start behind Lukaku.

Whilst I don't expect us to park the bus I think we'll see a very pragmatic performance where Liverpool will dominate the ball and we'll look to hit them on the break with the pace of Rashford, Miki and Lukaku supported by Valencia and Young providing the width.

I've been to most games this season and in my opinion we've looked at our most dangerous when the other team have had possession of the ball and committed men forward. I've been really impressed with our counter attacking football this year spearheaded by the power and strength of Lukaku.

Massive weekend ahead I can't wait and just the way I see the game panning out. I would be interested to hear other posters opinions and the way they see the game going.

On a side note I think Fellaini will be a big miss as I think Jose would have used him to beat their press. I don't expect us to build from the back as much and I think we'll go more direct into Lukaku. My only reservation is if we fail to keep hold of the ball and get forced back. If Lukaku can occupy their CB and hold up the ball with Rashford and Miki supporting him quickly I think we'll have a great chance of victory. If we go long to often or Lukaku gets isolated we could see something similar to what happened against Southampton in the second half. Fascinating afternoon ahead.

what team would people like to see against burton? Mine would be.
I think this could be the ideal game for Wilson to be given another chance after his terrible run of injuries.

In Mikhitarian we have potentially one of the best players in the league, if not Europe. He can be that good for us. He was phenomenal in Germany in his last season. This year alone he is one assist off Coutinho highest ever PL season assist total, after just 4 games. He has what, 5/ 6 assists already? He's quite capable of 15-20 assists and at least 10 goals. But if we're to see the best of Miki he has to play number 10. He needs to be central. He's totally ineffective out wide. Lukaku benefits also from having Miki playing centrally with him. I also think Pogba and the team as a whole are much more effective with a 2 man midfield. I love Hererra, he was our best player last season, but Matic and Pogba has more balance and stability.

So for me, we need to stick with Matic and Pogba, Miki number 10, with two from 3 of Rashford/ Martial and Mata. I feel we would have won yesterday has we stuck with that team. Having said that, the defending from both Bailly and Jones was uncharacteristically poor. Definatly feel it's our best 11 and formation tho, Miki is capable of being the best player in the league is we play to his strengths.

I'm a massive Herrera fan but I think I understand why he isn't playing. I think Jose is holding him for the big teams where we will play 3-5-2.

Against these smaller teams, we need people like Mata to unlock the defense.

Also, Jones was MOTM today.

Could have something to do with his contract situation. Only one year left unfortunately.

Rash dropped for martial. Tough call but martial has done well coming off the bench. He has earned this start i'd love to see him do well today.

I was watching the MOTD BBC pundits picking their all time 11 premier league team last night. Their midfield was Ronaldo on the right Giggs on the left happy with that. but in the middle they had Gerrard and lampard, doesn't work for me boys, now on football alone you have to take out lampard and put scholes in there for me anyway.
And I would have had Tony Adams in the back all day long.
Any thoughts on it lads.

Prems been going on too long to be doing all time 11s now, should be seperated out into decades as you're never going to be able to fit in everyone that should be init.

Okay, here goes.

Nev Rio Vidic Cole

Scholes Keane

Ronaldo Cantona Giggs

Mickey_____Ibra_____Martial/ Rash

Rashford/ Martial

Personally I don't want to see Mikhitaryan moved out wide, but we don't have Perisic who Jose wanted for that position. I think if Ibra is re-signed then it could look like this. Berbatov played this role, but Ibra is far stronger.

Wouldn't mind seeing this team against the weaker opposition also.
__________De Gea___________
Toni V_________________Shaw

I do realise this will rarely happen as it means all 3 strikers are on the pitch but it would be fun to watch such a team with speed, skill and power!
