    Lots of injuries and new faces. At the start of the season - Who would have expected to see Guehi on the bench? No Rudiger, Emersom or Kante. Barkley starts which must really make folks feel totally great about this one. Pedro, Willian and Mount start. AND Captain Amerika Pulisic still a sub. :(

    Is Frank trying to make Mount’s ankle worse? He didn’t look to comfortable the last twenty minutes against Liverpool.

    I’m going to guess Pulisic doesn’t get on.

    Subs will be CHO, Bats, and James.

    Getting rather tired of the square peg, star-shaped hole that is Jorginho in every lineup.

    Lampard is like that butterfly meme - is this a position Mount can play in this game?

    I expect Jorginho keeping his place shows how little Frank trusts the passing of the other midfielders.

    On the one hand, I finished my grocery shopping. Seeing Barkley start however, is not how I want to start my weekend.

    I think Frank may have had a word with Barkley about shooting less from absurd positions.

    Willian is reverting to his first year, where he does not make the last key pass, too shoot happy too

    Willian is letting the number 10 shirt get to his head.

    Pulisic would be good for this game.

    I have to say, Jorginho’s positioning in this game has been excellent. As was that ball to Pedro.

    Lol@ tammy hunting down the keeper there with ball in hand. Love to see that from a striker. Sort of thing Wrighty used to do.

    Nice work from barkley to feed pedro there. Halftime coming at a bad time.

    On the plus side, we kept a rare clean sheet (for a half).

    Barkley’s presence in the starting XI is an absolute mystery to me. Pedro and Willian are “fine” but showing why we signed Pulisic to begin with.. their time as undisputed starters ended a long time ago.

    That said, we should be at least a goal up. Frank would’ve put all of those away himself. We need to be clinical.
