So here we are! 3 games to go and all to play for.
We simply must get something from this game.
Chelsea have a FA Cup Final to look forward to a few days after this game. Does TT rest a few players or go all out for the win?
They cannot win the Title and should have enough of a points cushion to guarantee a place in the CL next season.
However, even if they rest their best 11, their second 11 will still be a team full of internationals.
The ER crowd have to get behind the guys wearing the famous white shirt. Inspire and be LOUD.
Hopefully, JM has a plan. He has shown v Arsenal he is tactically aware. 2-0 down after 10 minutes, down to 10 men a few minutes later and a home crowd enjoying their day.
I have to admit, when Luke got sent off, My Boy and I went to my allotment to do some weeding and fix the shed. We could not bear to watch anymore as we "knew" we were in for a 7+-0 drubbing.
A couple of hours and a few beers later we get home and were "pleasantly" surprised we only lost 2-1. Just a bit deflated when we learned the Everton result. Still that is life. Once a White, Always a White living the Ups and Downs.
If I were JM I would go for:
James Llorente Pascal Firpo
KP Koch Bate
A nervous evening beckons
