Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we'll fight 'til it's over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can't hold us
Like the ceiling can't hold us

Mourinho rotates most of the front four after the herculean pressing effort shown on Sunday.  Kalas makes the bench, which is nice.

The conditions aren't exactly great on the south coast, so this one may be a bit of a grind.

UP THE BLUES!
