I think Nuno will go with a don't lose approach so we'll see:
-------------------------Rui-------------------
--------Donck-----Coady------Saiss-------
Semedo------Neves---Mou/Vit----RAN
---------Neto------Jose------Traore

I know people will want to see us work out the defensive issues with last night's formation, but I think he'll be spooked enough from what he saw to be cautious, maybe overly so?

If Boly AND Moutinho are unavailable, I think he is more likely to bring Kilman in and play Dendoncker in midfield again IF he chooses to go with three CBs, which I agree he may well do.

I think Kilman is done. I don't think the plan was to go four at the back, but Boly dropped out late. Kilman wasn't trusted to step in.

I'd much rather TT's team than Donk in midfield. For me, I'd go:
Rui
Saiss - Coady - Donk
Semedo ------ Neves ------ RAN
Neto - Vintinha - Traore
Jose/Fabio​
Can't pick between Jose / Fabio, neither are good enough to start

May as well go for it from the off*:

Rui
Semedo--Coady--Saiss--RAN
Donk--Neves
Neto----------------Adama
Silva---Jose

Goals, goals, goals

(*Of course Nuno won't do this and will go 3-4-3)

If Boly is back I'd keep it the back 4, maybe even have Saiss shifted back to LB (my thinking what may happen, not what I want to happen) and then Mou in for Donk.

He can't be legally. He tested positive on Monday

Ah right, had missed that. I thought he had just been in proximity to someone, never mind then, bring on the back 5!


Just seen YW post says UNAVAILABLE

I don't think Nuno should be too spooked or cautious when playing Fulham.

As much as we were culpable in the WH goals yesterday, they have double Fulham's points haul and double their goals scored. They're a very good team this season. Fulham aren't really.

Stick with the 4231 for me, same team as last night, just don't let opposition players run through us on goal!

Lets be positive, our last three defeats, Man City......UNSTOPPABLE. Liverpool, we were unlucky, and West Ham, well we gift wrapped them three goals. Three top sides, all top six. So with what we have coming up we are capable of a few wins, providing we arent so generous. So if Neto and Adama are up for it we should be okay against Fulham. Hope Silva dont score though, everytime he scores, we lose.

To win, we have to score. To score, we have to get the ball on target and over the line; not over the bar nor wide of the posts.

Against West Ham we had 20 attempts and only 5 on target. That has to improve.

I fear that if we go to contain we just wont and will lose 1-0. If we go to attack we will certainly concede and probably will score. Based on that I would stick with the 4-at the back approach .

Semedo Coady Saiss RAN
Neves Donk
Podence Vitinha Neto
Silva
I like the no goalkeeper approach. Perhaps we won't notice.;)

In all seriousness I don't think Silva is the right person up top ( Fabio that is ) on his own. He needs to play in a front two with his lack of pace. His goal against West Ham was a glimpse of his capability.

So team news is essentially the same squad we used on Monday.

Unless Nuno is pulling a KJ on us and Mout is fit of course. Boly back in training on Tuesday (neg test permitting)
