We'll be lucky to keep pool under 3 goals. Desperately need Rudiger, Kante and Emerson to be fit or we are screwed.

But what a great test for our kids.

In the Supercup game recently in the first half you guys were better. Missed the second and extra time. Think it will be tight. I hope we smash though.

Allison out, Robertson in doubt. Tough away game in Italy beforehand. With Tammy on fire we would be more than happy to escape with a point.

Mane and Salah against Alonso and Azpi scares the shit out of me. You'll be fine.

Leicester v Tottenham should be interesting too. If we win that we might actually be a top 6 chance, lose it and it's confirmed we'll be mid table once again

Adrian is a huge concern in games like this. Allison pretty much got us the draw last season making plenty of good saves.
You're conceding and only one goal has Adrian been at fault, so saying Allison being back matters is like saying "it was the poison, not the bullet to the head that killed him"

well stones is out for a month injured now so thats cool
So Otamendi, Fernandinho, Garcia and Harwood-Bellis is our fit centre backs.

Think we might see a bit of Garcia in the next month, will be interesting to see how he copes.

No we wouldn’t. Anything less than a win will be a disappointing result.

That’s not a dig at Chelsea because I think it’ll be a tight game but dropping points in any game would be bad considering what our aim is this season.

so much for this, maybe slot Fernandinho between Otamendi and Walker.
Probably best not to overreact to a bad result and make wholesale changes to tactics that have served us pretty well in recent times.
