We welcome another of the promoted teams, Sheffield Utd to the Cottage for a 3 o’clock kick off
A very disappointing result against Chelsea, we just didn’t turn up for what for most? fans would have been “the” game we wanted to win this season.
The one player who had a decent game was Iwobi, he’s got to start the next game. Raúl is still struggling, after 7 games I’m sure he’d want to have gotten on the score sheet, I’m sure he’ll come good eventually, but I’d start Vinicius and bring Raúl on later in the game if needed.
Castagne was really good going forward but I don’t think he’s quite as good as Tete in defence.
Tim made a mistake for their first goal, if fit I think Bassey should start as he’s going to be our long term option.
Sheffield are currently bottom with only one point , they lost at home to Newcastle 0-8, but had a creditable 1-2 to Man City, their not as bad as the 0-8 would make them appear.
Marco is one win away from his 50th Premier League win (D28, L63), it would have been nice if it had come against Chelsea, but it wasn’t to be, perhaps this weekend will be the one.
Our recent record against the blades is fairly even with 4 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws.
Assuming no further injuries my team would be
