Predict the Starting Eleven
Who will be first to claim the speedboat?
Hughes is trying to lull us into a sense of false security here by pretending he knows what he’s doing vis-a-vis the first eleven. It’s clearly time that he showed us that he hasn’t really got a clue.
No Ings so it won’t be the same team.
Surely Armstrong has to get a start soon - perhaps this is the day?
Can he really expect 4-4-2 to cope with Liverpool’s pace/movement?
Anyway, you know the rules. Pick the eleven players, in whatever formation you feel Hughes will go for, and if you get it spot-on you will win either a caravan or a motorboat (badge).
