A club in crisis versus a club forever teetering on the edge of one. This could get weird, just like our last four in a row, which have averaged over 5 total goals. Are we not entertained?

Pochettino almost picks the exact lineup that the vast majority of WAGNH picked as well, but he opts for Cucurella at left back and Disasi at right and Badiashile on the bench. Reece not starting is a bit of a surprise... Youngsters Gilchrist, Castledine, and Matos all on the bench as well.

UPDATE: James may be dealing with some “knee pain” but that doesn’t seem like the primary reason for his benching.

No Mason Mount at all for United.

Here we go!
