    How do you guys feel about Ajax in the Europa League?

    If we win tomorrow we finish top of the group and I think I'm right in saying that that means you can't be drawn against teams who drop down from the CL in the next round? So it's not a possibility for the next round if that's right.

    As for the rounds after, if you want to win the competition you'll have to play them at some point so if we have to play one of the CL teams eventually then so be it.

    But that’s IF you win Thursday. Was there not talk of resting some players for tomorrow’s match?

    We didn't top the group under Jose either.

    Not terribly worried. If anything, we benefit from facing better opposition tbh

    Genuine question, why are Chelsea fans so interested in our Europa league match two days before it happens? Not trying to suggest you're trying to troll or anything, actually wondering.

    We won't be playing our first team but we won't be fielding a team like we did in Astana. Fully expecting to win on Thursday so we wouldn't face these teams being mentioned until at least the round after if we do win.

    You stated that United would win and wouldn’t have to face any of the clubs dropping from the CL. Only reason it was mentioned.

    I'm only interested in who you'll probably face later.

    I started my post with if we win. I didn't keep repeating the if throughout it because I started with it. Its not guaranteed obviously but I expect we will win. Just my opinion.

    Eh? I call people out on trolling all the time, I wasn't here at all. I was actually asking a question

    You've definitely misjudged the situation here, Ahmer.

    Seems I misread your guys’ intent. It just came across differently to me. My bad!

    Who do you think starts at LB on Thursday and who do you think should?

    I think Williams will, sadly, but I'd rather Shaw or Young play this game. Williams is our best attacking LB so it'd be helpful to have him against Everton if they sit deep for the overloads with Rashford against them.

    Shaw. Forget about Young.

    Shaw. Forget about Young.

    That doesn't really answer my question. Is that you want Shaw to start? Or you think he will start? Or both?

    I don't blame Shaw for that after the **** show before Lukaku left when Lukaku leaked that training data. Good for Shaw :D

    Hopefully Dortmund come down to the EL so Sancho becomes a bigger possibility

    I want them to come down because Conte scares me

    As you should. One of the best managers in the world. Would be a hard match definitely

    Especially given Conte’s style of play. It’s exactly what United struggle with. Would love to see Lukaku’s revenge.

    Lukaku played a huge part in why they failed to win today :lol:

    I didn't say that. I just pointed out the fact that they'd still be in the UCL if it wasn't for Lukaku.

    And honestly, I'm more worried about Martinez than I am Lukaku.

    I'm sure that'll come back and bite me should we play, but it's the truth at the moment.

    Lukaku has 10 goals in the league. Lautaro has 8. Seems you should be worried about both.

    That's great... Lautaro is still the bigger threat imo.... and he's definitely been the better of the two in UCL this season despite Lukaku having 1 more goal.

    Martinez was easily the better of the two today.

    Both gifted goals to be fair

    The first he read the back pass, outpaced the defender for the interception, rounded the keeper and scored. The second he followed the shot and scored the rebound, something not many of our current attackers do. He got himself into position to take advantage of both those mistakes.

    He wasnt the right player for United, and I'm fine with him being moved on. But I will always be appreciative for his contribution on that memorable night.
