Referee: Kevin Friend (bollocks ) Assistants: R West, A Halliday Fourth official: N Swarbrick I have to admit I'm not massively optimistic about this one. No VVD, back to back home losses for the first time in 2 years and a complete lack of goals. On the plus side I noticed Mark Clattenburg has been named the world's best referee. My team would be: Forster Cedric, Fonte, Yoshida, Bertrand Hojbjerg, Romeu JWP Boufal Rodriguez Sims Or, we play Forster and 10 defenders and put them all on Lukaku to get a 0-0 draw. I would take a 0-0 draw in this one. With VVD out, that would be a very good result. Anyway, big year ahead for Saints in 2017. Lets start by taking down Koeman and his bunch of Mersey tossers!
