Think this will be ou first true look at Higuain. Unlike Wednesday, Bournemouth will actually try to play football and not stack their whole team in their own half. He should have space here and they have a terrible defensive record.

Obviously a must win game. I pray that Emerson gets the nod ahead of Alonso and I hope Kovacic is preferred to Barkley. Maybe even RLC in that attacking midfield spot to give us pace and dynamism. I really don't want to see Alonso and Barkley force us to play ponderous and excruciatingly slowly like we did for much of today's game.

We need to play fast and direct against them.

That is our absolute strongest lineup we can field IMHO.

Only really debate is RLC. No one has still nailed down the AMF spot, so the cycle goes on.

A case could be made for Kovacic, but he is driving me absolutely crazy that he cannot score.

There are still holes in either one that need upgrading (both fullbacks, AMF (as you said) and RW are the most glaring (plus CB if Luiz leaves, and obviously LW if Eden bails, plus CF if Higs doesn't work out)

We are a team of so many

In this type of match, I agree.  It's Kovacic or RLC.  RLC in a match like this.  Kovacic in a match where we have to be a little more defensively sound.

It's astonishing tbh. He's getting close to Mikel numbers & that just isn't acceptable.

Not to mention the potential ban we could be facing. Roman either has to invest properly or give youth a proper chance (Mount, James, Tammy, etc).

Kinda would like to see AC over Rudiger; give Rud a rest and he has played sloppy in recent games.

Such a good lineup this. 

Pedro and CHO should be rotated. Willian should only be brought on when we are defending a lead.

THAT I do think he is superb at. I do trust his defensive skillset. I think that is why Sarri plays him so much.
