Christmas game

So for both the Man City and Southampton games, we only have one day since the previous game - and the other side have an extra day off. Do we play a weakened team against Man City on the basis that well probably lose it anyway and give ourselves a better chance against Southampton?

Yes definitely. We should go as close as we can with the team we pick for the City game without getting fined. That then leaves us with a nice five day gap between the three league games where we can more easily pick up points and we should play our best team in each of those games. We also must play our strongest team in the FA Cup at Brighton.

Puncheon can play against Brighton. And take his belt.

Give a couple of kids run outs against City, Lokilo and someone else who’s impressing for the under 21s. Despite likely getting trounced I feel it’d be a great experience for them to play against players of that calibre. Then the likes of Sako, Jimmy Mac/Cabaye, Punch, Kelly, PVA, Damo can start too.

Hard to disagree with this.

We've been screwed by the fixtures being so close together.

Southampton away is more important than Man City at home. We have a realistic chance of getting something from Southampton so that should be the priority. We should be looking to overtake Southampton.

The only concern would be our goal difference.

Hopefully we will beat Swansea and Arsenal beforehand!

How come top teams can play weakened teams without getting fined?

Remember Big Sam last season, starting our strongest 11 against Arsenal leaving us knackered for Swansea a couple days later and subsequently losing? Don’t want a repeat of that.

Getting slaughtered by the best team in the league won't do anything for any kids morale.

I think as long as your players are in the registered 25 you can play any team you like.

I know footballers often aren’t the brightest but surely they could realise that even with our first 11 we got trounced 5-0 by City, so shouldn’t take much hurt if the same happens here with the likes of Sako instead of Zaha, Damo over Sakho etc.

I actually think we might get something at home to City. Maybe its mad, but Zaha, Townsend, Benteke and Loftus-Cheek on the counter in a well set up Hogsson side like weve seen recently will cause problems for any team.

Beating Swansea is more important though. Putting 8 points between us and a relegation rival would be huge.

With one days rest before Saints would you want to risk our first 11 on the hope that we can be the first team to beat City this season, or even one of the two to get a draw?

Saints play man u at 17:30 the day before we play citeh at 12. So 18.5hrs more rest for them.

Hardly spring break.

We need to be prepared to take 3 important players off if we go 3-0 down V citeh.

Our two main goals must be to 1) keep our best 11 fit and healthy and 2) not destroy our improving goal difference.

So for me send out our reserves to 100% Park the bus
