As things stand, we will be in Pot 2 for next season's UCL Group Stage Draw. If we win the Europa League, we will be in Pot 1.

Frankfurt could have secured 4th place with a win today yet they crumbled completey...maybe not that mentally strong after all. They are a different animal away from home and we have to use this. From

Think was resigned to going out.. And seeing that game dreading being like that against Arsenal.. Then somehow going through. Still not confident.  Just hope we don't play like that in the final.

We better not screw this up.

We had quite a plain and succesful game and our rivals helped us so we can pretty much ignore the Leicester game, we can fully focus on Frankfurt. They played their match 3 hours after our kickoff, had to travel to Leverkusen, they were trashed, now they have to travel back(ca 500 km the two way) home. Next week they will have to travel to London, beat us while paying attention to their very important Bundesliga game on Sunday. It's a must win.

Also, if we beat Arsenal in the final they will stuck in the Europa League next year, this will be the extra prize :)

Kepa

Azpi ac DL Ep

Barkley jorginho RLC

Willian giroud hazard

 

 

Against Leicester play:

Willy

Zappa ? GC ma

Barkley kovacic ?

Pedro higuain willian

 

 

 

Since the Leicester game doesn't matter it's gonna be the best team avalable. If Kanté is fit he will start(seems unlikely though), if not Kovacic and RLC(both are in great form) will play alongside Jorginho, can't see Barks starting.

I'm a bit paranoid about Ruben, he's played two (near) full games this part week the first of which his back started playing up, I fear he may go the same way as Kante today if he has another full game so soon.

Which makes me think given our advantage and the fact Frankfurt look tanked we should start with Barkley and Kova do the boring side of Sarriball and have them chasing the ball, then unleash Rubes after an hour to finish them off.

Errr...

I am concerned about the back lash from them, we need a perfect 90 min plus Hazard still owes us a Europa league performance which I'm okay with him saving till the final if we do make the final

He does not have insane amount of minutes in his bones this season unlike Kante, Luiz or Azpi so I think he should be fine, he has played like 155mins within 4 days, he should stil have enoug hin the tank to play 2 more games this season.

Agreed - out of all the players, least concerned about him.

Love his driving forward with the ball - just wish he had a bit more confidence to lash home some 25 yarders.

Was his back flaring up against Frankfurt, or was he just cramping? I thought sarri said he was cramping, which I understood just as calf cramping. I could be wrong here

Frankfurt didn't look impressive in the fist game. Everton, Wolves, Leicester and Watford are by far better teams. Even Jorginho looked a beast against Frankfurt. My prediction: 4x0.

with this current lot nothing is a given and its never the easy way, we will need to start this one on the front foot, can't afford another game like the 2nd leg against Sparta Prague. Cheers and goodluck
