Saints at home
« on: November 27, 2017, 22:09:01 »
Just wondering if we should rest a couple for this, maybe Kev, but superkev seems super fit so is it best to play him every game?

Same with Silva

Or just keep a winning team ?

I would just keep a winning team, as we never know when injury will strike giving players an enforced rest. I think Pep has a policy of resting key players by taking them off 15 minutes early on occasions, when possible.

Best policy is to score a few as early as possible, so we can then cruise a bit without playing at full pelt.

It might be a good game for Fernandinho to get a fifth yellow so he serves a suspension against West Ham and is fighting fit for the rags.

Playing the same layer all the time with rest; remember what happened with Geraud at Liverpool, burnt out. do we want Kevin to go the same way ?

Even resting one of them is a risk as we can look a bit toothless, as we did against Feyenoord for large parts of the game - Bernardo Silva is not yet close to the standard of his namesake.

Dinho definitely needs to get that 5th yellow tomorrow, otherwise leave him out against West Ham, he's a must-start for the derby.

Sane also 4 yellow cards so hopefully Pep will play both him and Fernandinho and tell them if they do not have a yellow with 15 minutes to go go foul someone and get booked.

Removes any worries of them missing the Derby or other key holiday games.

They'll get a rest in Ukraine but not against Southampton I suspect. As stated above, Bernard doesn't look ready to step in yet.
