                                   Mendy

                          Chris Silva Rudiger

Azpi no idea who should be left out of Kova, Jorgi and Kante Alonso

                                  Havertz

                           Lukaku     Werner

Or play 3 5 2 with all 3 MFs but Kai out.

Laporte, Stones out probably Gundogan as well so Ake will play.

Chris and Azpi will cover Grealish very well. For the first time I dont fear City at all. We have their number. Lets see what will Pep do, he always changes something against us. Probably spent all summer thinking about us 😆

Only hate this kick off 12:30.

If we win vs them for the 4th time in a row, it means we permanently got into their head and really would be title favourites.

This time I think, Pep will not come up with anything fancy tho.

He will play Jesus and Rodri where they belong. We will have to go through some serious shit this time to best them. Esp if Mendy is out.

It will be difficult to stretch and go in behind City tho with our current wing back pairing of Alonso and Azpi due to their lack of pace. I really hope Tt plays at least James.

mount was terrible again today and should not play

I would probably go for

----------------Mendy/Kepa-----------

-----Azpi---------Thiago---------Toni---

RJ---------Kante--------Kova------Alonso

-------Kai-------------------Timo--------

-------------------Rom-----------------------

will be interesting to see how Rom deals with their more skilled but physically inferior defenders.

Think it’ll be a 352 with Lukaku and Kai up top. Back 5 remains the same. 
 

Although I wouldn’t be surprised if Mount is shoehorned in there somehow. Or if we continue with a 343. 
 

Decisions.

City have Chelsea, PSG and Liverpool all away next 3 games. Probably toughest week in the history of football 😂

in 11 days in May 2002, Neverkusen blew the Bundesliga title, The DFB-Pokal final, and the CL final

That is painful.

Oh, I forgot to add, the next month, in June 2002, some of their players blew the WC Final to Brasil, lol 

Ultimate horror stretch

Tell me about it.

However, the only player who blew it was Oli kahn with that fumble (albeit he played with a broken thumb) but you can not really blame our terrible squad back then for blowing it, they were out of their depth. Just scraping past inferior teams like Paraguay, USA and SKorea on the way to the final. Our only real way to win that final would have been pens

As a small remedy, Ballack at least got German footballer of the year in 2002

No way Jorgi will be left out, pretty sure our squad will be like:

----------------Mendy/Kepa-----------

-----AC---------Thiago---------Toni---

Azpi---------Jorgi--------Kova------Alonso

-------Kante-------------------???--------

-------------------Rom-----------------------

where ??? will be Mount, Havertz or Timo.

So slow, no pace. City will have a field day with their high line

We need a fast player to unlock them. I hate playing with all three Jorginho, Alonso and Azpi.... so little speed to break their lines. Timo has to play whether we like it or not.

Agreed on Timo: he's very effective against their style of play.

I don't think we need pace in all areas and slowing down the game worked very well in the CL final for example. It's very important to keep the ball, so that they don't have it at all times, therefore don't think Tuchel will be making drastic changes.

City has immense quality, and so do we. Games like these are decided in a detail, so it's presumptuous to give too much favoritism either way. We may be slightly in better form atm, but both sides are still making early season adjustments.

Think this’ll be an extremely difficult game. City will be more up for this than any game this season I think. All the talk about Tuchel having Pep’s number, City can’t beat this Chelsea, people installing us as title favorites ahead of them etc.

They’re going to be desperate to prove a point and stick one on us to remind everyone that they’re still the team to beat.

I’m confident in us but won’t be surprised if we slip up. But if we do beat them for a 4th straight time I genuinely will start to believe that we’re the prohibitive title favorite.
