CB is problem. I trust only Rudiger and he's not available. 

Kepa, Azpi, Luiz, Chris/Zouma, Emerson, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley, Pedro, Pulisic, Giroud. 

Mount, Kovacic and Michy subs.

Here we go... If last seasons oddness is to go on probably win this and lose to Leicester. 

Just don't play stupid and do silly things.

Hope Lampard picks a CB partnership and settles with it. Has chopped and changed so many times during pre-season, which is partly understandable but the season is about to start and we need to have a settled defence if we are to avoid committing stupid mistakes at the back.

Think he'll 100% go with Zouma and Luiz until Rüdi gets back.

That combo is a disaster waiting to happen.

It is, indeed. Live by the Luiz, die by the Luiz.

Hope like hell that Kante is ready by next weekend. Rasford, Martial, etc running at our defense doesn't exactly sound exciting after what we've witnessed in preseason, does it? 😅

Mount and Abraham over Barkley and Giroud

Complete reset from last season please

I don't trust Zouma either. Suspect defensively and looks so cumbersome whenever he's on the ball.

AC and Luiz for me

shame Reece isnt fit, as he could play either RB or CB (instead of Luiz) with Azpi (I would go CB with him) taking the other role

Yeah, this preseason has been a big reminder for me about Zouma's shortcomings. His concentration/focus isn't great (which the espn commentator mentioned seemingly a dozen times yesterday) and his ability on the ball is very subpar. He almost never made forward passes this summer that were more than a few yards. He always plays the safe sideways or backwards pass.

I think Zouma will be fine this season against certain teams but I 100% would not play him against super quick, highly technical teams like City/Liverpool/Arse. 

Luckily, it seems like Rüdiger isn't far away. Hopefully back to his 18/19 form.

Will be happy if he can prove me wrong but Zouma is basically another Cahill, IMO. Good and solid in defensive systems but found wanting in more progressive, attacking systems. Positionally poor, not great intelligence in higher defensive line and offers average, unambitious passing when on the ball. As Vesper mentioned above, I'd rather go with Luiz and Christensen at Old Trafford. At least they have decent chemistry by now having played together last season along with the full backs.

They have all their players plus the new ones coming in, we have injuries, new manager, plenty youngsters....and its at old toilet. I would take a draw right now, we can win but dont think its very likely, our midfield and defence need to be much more solid to take a win......but a win would rock our world huh, such awesome scenes if we win.

Genuinely question Lamps’ rational then. Especially considering he encourages playing out from the back.
