This game is not important for me because I have my eyes on the FIFA Club World Cup in December and if we get knocked out in this fixture which may be a blessing in disguise to help us with the remaining parts of our season and I do value the FA Cup more than this competition.
Matip is out for six weeks and appears VVD is carrying a knock (rumoured) so both players will not be featured. The first 11 line up should be very interesting and for the life of me I can’t decide who to put out but this would be my best choice or guess:
Gomez - Hoever - Lovern - Milner (Robertson)
Keita - Fabinho - Oxlade Chamberlain
Firmino - Origi
I would prefer to have Adrian instead of Kelleher, there’s a decision between Milner and Robertson to cover the LB position, Lallana may take a place in the midfield instead of Keita or Ox, I would feature Fabinho in this game and drop him for the Villa game because he's one yellow card short from a one game suspension which would be against Man City, but I have no idea what team the Gaffer will put out for this game and I do expect Arsenal to put out a strong team against us since they are desperate for trophies. We have bigger fish to fry such as the PL, FIFA CWC, FA Cup, and CL. We’ll be rooting for a win and best of luck Redmen.
