4-3. Luke Shaw to score a hat-trick, me to get a boner over it and then the board to submit an official bid to Southampton for him after the game.

Hazard with 2 goals and Mata with the other 2. All 4 goals assisted by Oscar. Would be perfect for me.

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 6 of Southampton's last 7 games in the Premier League.

Chelsea have conceded at least 2 goals in their last 3 away matches in the Premier League.

Southampton are in relegation battle, they will not just roll over like West Ham

we will not get anything if we think that just turning up will do the job, just ask Liverpool

now if someone would tell that to the players, that would be great

An interesting side that likes to play good football, but are really inconsistent. Hopefully this will be one of their off days.

They have some class players though, not to mention the best ball-winning DM in the league by a country mile.

Benitez is likely to have that FA Cup replay game in mind when selecting the team here but need to forget that game and play the strongest team here as ultimately, this game carries more significance than the United game.

This is a potential banana skin game IMO. And Southampton's results under Pochettino proves that. In the 8 league games under him, Southampton have W2 D3 L3 and 2 of those wins came against Man City and Liverpool while they then dropped points against the likes of Wigan, QPR, Norwich etc. They even drew 0-0 against Everton in Pochettino's first game in charge. Overall in 4 home games under him, Southampton have won 2, drawn 1 and lost 1 & took 7 points from 9 there against City, Liverpool and Everton.

Also, Ba has scored 4 goals since joining us and 3 of those came against Southampton. Play him here or against United 2 days later? We do have the Rubin Kazan game in the following Thursday as well, which he obviously can't play in. So Torres may well start this one. It's been awhile since he last started a league game.

FA Cup tie is a huge priority. We should play a weaker side.

Try Moses as a CF. Play Marin too so we can play Mata,Hazard, Oscar behind Ba on Monday

You can't be serious?

How is the FA Cup a bigger priority than ensuring a Top 3/4 finish this season?!

We have a game in hand. Moses and Marin should be capable of beating Southampton. Ofc 3/4 is a bigger priority but we also have to get some silverware.

I would go for :

Cech

Iva Cahill Terry Bertrand

Lampard Luiz

Moses Mata Hazard (sub mata and hazard by oscar/marin when we have a 1/2 goal lead)

Torres

With United in mind of course and assuming there are no injuries

And then against united

Azpi Terry Luiz Cole

Mikel Ramires

Mata Oscar Hazard

Ba

That game is our 'insurance policy' but no guarantee we'll win that game. It's Fulham at the Cottage as well!

Moses and Marin should be capable of beating Southampton.

On paper, maybe so but the truth is they're not our best players in the team. Play our strongest team here, win the game and then only start thinking about the FA Cup.

Ofc 3/4 is a bigger priority but we also have to get some silverware.

Yes but I would not risk dropping points here for the sake winning trophies by putting out a weaker team given the situation right now.

dont give a shit about the replay or the kazan game. we should play our best team against these guys and really consolidate the 3rd spot.

arsenal are playing at home to reading, tottenham are goin away to swansea, and city are playing newcastle at etihad... i seriously think tot and city would bottle and if we win we can push for 2nd(maybe)

cech

azpi cahill jt cole

mikel rambo

hazard mata oscar
