I'd like to See Fahrmann given a chance to show what he can do. 

Fahrmann conceeded 10 goals in 2 games last season against Man City and same time we have Krul man of the match last game so no chance really...

Time for one or two of the U23 players to step up. That's the approach DF took last season and it worked; nothing at all to lose by following it again. 
Realistically this match is already lost in terms of a result, I don't think even the most optimistic fan expects anything other than a heavy defeat - but the next 4-5 are games where we need to be in a position to compete. To do that we CANNOT risk any further injuries to important players in defence - so Aarons, Godfrey and Lewis, for me, need to sit this dead rubber match out.

Byram and Heise can clearly come in but that leaves two holes in the center - Amadou might have to fill one of those spaces but I'd much rather see Akin Famewo or Ciaran Jones given a chance to step up than risking Lewis out of position as some are suggesting. Just dont see the purpose of gambling with Lewis - an experienced player out of position is not better than an inexperienced youngster who knows the role. The club 's ethos as I understand is the players are being taught the same way of playing throughout the age groups so they're ready to step up a level when needed. 

 

                   Fahrmann
Byram Famewo  Amadou  Heise

             Tettey      McLean 

                      Vrancic     

                     Cantwell 

                Pukki       Drmic

Bench : Krul; Ciaran Jones, Buendia, Stiepermann, Srbeny, Idah, Whoever else has looked decent for the U23s... Milovanovic plays defensive midfield I think? maybe him?

Krul

Byram - Amadou - Lewis - Heise

Tettey - Mclean

Buendia - Steipermann - Buendia

Pukki

 

Godfrey to CB if he's fit with Lewis moving back to LB obviously.

Pretty good looking team given the circumstances, assuming you mean Cantwell instead of the second Buendia.....

A chance for Mclean to re-establish himself, a chance for Tettey to use his experience and show us he still has the legs, a chance for Amadou to show us what he has - and the front four we know can score. 

Everything to play for.

Based on the injury news, I'd probably go for:


Krul (If fit)

ICF, Herman, Amadou, Lewis

Tettey, Keelan's Grandad, 

Emi, Stiepi, Cantwell 

Pukki

Subs: Fahrmann, Mad Moy, Hogesar, Idah, Van Wink, Srbeny (compulsory)

I can still kick things but I wouldn't last 90 minutes. But then again neither would the Man City players.

We will quite likely have Tettey and Byram in the team today, both well experienced in the Premier League and could actually help us in what will be a tremendous game.

Amadou is the real deal and is no shrinking violet, so should do well at CB and if you add him to to the equation at CB with hopefully Godfrey, the team looks pretty good.

                   Krul

Byram Amadou Godfrey Lewis

          Tettey  Mclean

Buendia Stiepermann Cantwell

                  Pukki

Given the back line changes having krul start brings some consistency and organisation;  however if the arm is as fragile as Farke indicated - concerned at Krul ruling himself out in the warm up - then risking him in a game when he will face shots and potentially risk his arm more;   resting him this week in readiness for burnley seems the sensible option.

spot on !

Godfrey should play I think  and his inj seems not serious...

other 10 players seems without contest...

Over all with the way we play always can be trashing from this Man City with best 11 or this 11 ...

Not that bad 11 as we really missed no more than 3 players who must start if is fit.Aarons,Trybull and one of Zimbo/Klose

lets hope after 2 international games and ch league come in midweek Sterling and Kun to be rested to keep the score more close

Lomas and Odusina are notable omissions in defence. Are they injured or needed in the first team squad?

Not sure if related but our U21 bench is two light. Late calls for first team squad maybe?
