I can see a few fringe players getting a run out here: Atsu, maybe Henley, Murphy and Lazzar. He'll want to rest a few of his first choice 11 for the big games coming up.

 

The Bristol game coincides with a piece in the Chronic about the squad players. I wouldn't be surprised if we see more of them, maybe not starting positions but longer than Rafa's traditional 5-10 minutes at the end of the game. Atsu and Hanley might start mind you.

The last time we rotated heavily we lost at home to Blackburn. Tough games ahead in a short space of time, but I wouldn't want to mess with the foundations of the team.

 

EDIT: Surely this it the time to see Atsu on the left, though? If we're worried about Gouffran shielding Dummett, a game against these without their top scorer seems a good time.

We can't afford to slip up mate & this will be Mitro's chance to prove a point

 

We can afford to slip up. We're 5pts and 29 goals better off than 3rd.

 

This isn't Mitrovic's only chance either.

 

And even if both those things were​ true, how does that explain your 4-0 Mitro hat trick prediction? ;lol:

If we were 5 points behind people would be moaning about how far off we were, now we're 5 points clear (which is really like 6 because of GD) it's as if Huddersfield are about to catch us. I'm not worrying about us slipping up tbh, we're top because we've been the best side in the league so far. Huddersfield might slip up, in which case we could be 8 points clear, then if we beat them we're 11 points clear. I don't see how that is any less likely than us slipping up and then losing to Huddersfield.

I think we'll grind out another win here against a side in poor form.
