Very strange team, can't see how we are going to line up. Hopefully SD is going to surprise us and Citeh by trying something different

Good luck to Peacock-Farrel and Benson, I hope they have a great day. Can only presume Brownhill is sick or injured.

To be fair, SD could have easily put Pieters left mid and stuck McNeil inside in place of Benson. He's gone more attacking.

Nothing to lose. Everything to gain. And possibly a future classic in the making.

Where were you when Burnley turned city over with half a team?

In fact scrap that. Where were you when Dyche started with three up top and some under 30’s 😂

Maybe sometimes you have to roll the dice , fair play to Sean as we all think we will be beaten so maybe have a real go see what happens

Hoping we’re going to give it a go this time rather than the usual timid surrender.

That the annoying thing on occasions when we’ve been battered. Hitting the ball up top all game is easy for the CHs. Their comfortable defending like that. They can struggle when they’re attacked in different ways. Hopefully a mix of play today and we can cause a few problems for them.

Dyche is already talking about the importance of keeping your shape. Historically against the big teams this tends to mean us standing off and letting them have the run of it and as we know, with their quality we get punished.

Going to be a tough afternoon I fear. Hope I am wrong though, hope both the Young-Guns make a big impact.

I think Pep could have picked our side today and he would have put his own side out to beat us . If we go 433 Pep will have to rethink on the pitch . This is a great curve ball by Sean , game on

We need to take more risks, McNeill won ball had a run at their man turned back and ball ended up back at Peacock for a punt upfield

Our ability to pass the ball from the edge of the opposition’s penalty area back to our keeper for a hopeful whoooosh upfield is amazing.

we are sitting way too deep.... our best bet is to lull them into thinking the match is theirs.. and then hope for a last minute equalizer.
