Teatime KO for this one. We have unbelievable form against these. Never been beaten in 20 league meetings and we have won the last 13PL meetings. Hopefully the run will continue today, though the law of averages isn't our friend

Wonder what team we'll see today. But whoever it is, we should be strong enough. We've been creating loads of chances the last few games without being very clinical, so it'd be nice to see us get a few early goals to settle the nerves.

Confident at the moment, that may change at 4.30 when Hants posts the teams!!

We need to pull our fingers out now and start playing with a bit of pace.
Foden in the middle as mentioned and a back 4 with Dias, Stones and Ake…with either Walker or rico right back

Alvarez either plays off Haaland or he shouldn’t start. If he plays off Haaland it means less control of midfield though. Kevin may or may not start although he definitely travelled. Bournemouth can be erratic but at their best they’re a handful. Solanke’s a good striker so will present an attacking threat. No easy three points.

KDB not starting according to FPL twitter - neither is Alvarez - apparently very reliable - they go off Stones' fantasy team :D
(guessing that means Kova & Doku are in)

Pep said trained on his own on Thursday but he was pretty sure he’d travel which he has. We’re going to have to get used to Kevin not starting. Pep wants to make sure he’s available for the really big matches ie Dippers Arsenal CL QFs. Hopefully he’ll start for the Derby but not sure about the FA Cup and Copenhagen.

Seems to be team leaks every game these days, fantasy football lot posting on twitter often coming out with accurate team squads hours before they're officially announced. Who in our squad is leaking this do you reckon? Can't be good for match prep, you only have to look at that lot down the road and all the shit Sancho/rashford/lingard caused with team leaks.

Edit - just noticed Johnny's mention of stones' FPL. Seems a bit retarded to be doing this imo.

No real wingers. A bit wierd. Guess Phil will play out wide again. Or possibly Bernardo and Nunes.

Expect packed defence and quick breaks. Kova and Nunes hopefully in to break forward through the oppo instead of trying to pass them to death
