    If Leicester get beat by that Utd team, I think even their fans will say they don’t deserve Champions League football.

    essentially throw a hugely important match here in the top 4 race
    not our problem, we clinched top 4 with a win Sunday, maybe clubs shouldn't need to rely on matches between other clubs to help them

    If that isn’t a signal to DDG that he’s no longer first choice, I don’t know what is.
    He knows Henderson is the usual prem keeper at the moment.

    Let's be fair, DDG is arguablt playing in the more important games.

    Wouldn’t say it’s throwing the game either? What do they want? A hungry united 11 wanting to prove a point or a knackered team on Thursday who Liverpool will beat easily?

    As a Chelsea fan I’m not too upset because we’re still in a great position, but it is indeed pretty fecked up that United fans get a game postponed, face no punishment at all really, and then essentially throw a hugely important match here in the top 4 race that could screw over multiple other teams.
    The other teams should have won more games then.

    I’m as excited about seeing that front three as I have been about any match this season.

    United had nothing to do with the game being postponed, so why should the club face punishment for it? It was completely outside of their control.

    As for throwing the game, take it up with the FA. They're the ones who gave us an impossible schedule. Should Ole run his players into the ground to be 'fair'? As a mangaer, his players are more important than whatever result benefits whichever team, so I don't quite understand why that should enter into consideration?

    Imagine being a scouser and, with no trace of irony, decrying how far United have fallen for not giving 'Lockdown Champions' Liverpool a top 4 handout.

    I don't know what people are on about in this thread to be honest. I have been reading the matchday threads all season and so far as I can tell this is the team most of you have been screaming for whilst calling Ole a coward for not rotating, based on those comments I expect us to batter Leicester 4-0.

    Thing is that team has nothing to lose and everything to gain by just going for it. Leicester have been bottling it of late

    The game is hardly thrown. It's Leicester not Bayern or Manchester City. They've got some good players but we've got some promising players and some experienced players out there. Any result is possible, even if our winning chances are down.

    I`m not sure what he could have done differently? Our starting 11 has played ridiculous amounts of football since the comeback after lockdown in june last year. We must be close to 70-75 games since then? And now we top it off with 4 games in a week. Key players like Maguire, Bruno, Shaw, AWB, Rashford, Cavani, Pogba definitely needed some rest now.

    I'm so excited for this game now :D

    As long as the young kids and VdB perform well, I'm not too bothered by the results

    For someone that isn't too upset you've managed to log on to a United forum, find the matchday thread used by United fans and post a whiney little rant.

    Interesting.

    Get in Ole. Resting players while fecking Liverpool over keeping the integrity of the competition. Nicely done

    Not that surprising given we played 48 hours ago. They'll probably do better than tired players would have.

    Haha this is madness, not only are we going into this game expecting to lose, but the Cafe is happy about it and RAWK is kicking off about it. This season it truly mental.

    Elanga Greenwood Amad front 3 is saucy as feck. Would love to see that front 3 but Bruno instead of Mata in another game.
