    Some big games this week in the Round of 16 including Liverpool v Arsenal and Chelsea v United. ( What a shame that both these games are being played on the same night).

    Southampton have a chance to put their 0-9 home defeat by Leicester right with consecutive away games v Man City in both the League Cup and the PL.

    Despite playing one of the big teams I can see Liverpool resting most of their first team. Fully expect Gomez, Milner, Ox, Keita, Origi, Lallana and Adrian to be supplemented by youngsters like Brewster and Elliot. My concerns would be who can play the full back positions and who can give Fabinho a rest? Fabinho is one booking away from an automatic suspension, maybe he should play this and get a yellow to ensure he is available for City? He really should of thought of that last game 😀

    There are only 4 trophies any Club can win in any season, this one provides a Wembley Final and imo you can’t pick and choose what trophies you would like to win.

    I expect that both United and Chelsea who aren’t realistically competing for the PL will put out fairly strong teams even though both Club’s are suffering with a number of injuries.

    Be more than happy for Chelsea to be lucky enough to win the League Cup again after the disappointment of losing the Final on penalties to City last season.

    Got to get past United first though and that won’t be easy.

    Peggy-True m8,but it gives youth players a chance to play & develop.Much rather my team gives youth a chance in comps like these than spend £80m on Maguire,£52m on Fred,etc…..

    Yeah, in all seriousness it does give the teams with let’s say more prestigious trophies to go for a chance to blood the youngsters, it’s a bit like a transfer ban for the other clubs…Pagan

    Pagan-I can understand City going for everything as they have such a strong and large squad,but lets say Liverpool lose Salah & VVD,Spuds lose Kane & Son,through injuries.Imho the league and the CL should be the most important comps.

    To be honest, for me it’s The League, FA Cup, Europe if it’s there then the League Cup, in that order, do like to see the youth giving it a go…Pagan

    Pagan-You would much rather your team won the the PL rather than CL? I would swap half of Uniteds PL titles for a few more CL trophies,without hesitation.I can understand Liberoools fans to be honest,long time since they have won it.

    Yes I would, I prefer them to win the FA Cup than the CL, The League is always No.1 for me, I like the straight knockout formula of the FA Cup, and if the CL was done on that system I would probably swap those two round. I just find the CL a money making exercise for the big boys….Pagan

    That is very true.I prefer the old format where only the champs could play in it.
