    Bit more defensive it seems, with Romeu/Wanyama both playing. Cedric must be injured - no Ryan Seager :(

    Probably the most defensive team we could put out. A similar sort of setup worked very well at Chelsea last season with some very quick counters, we'd have to rely on Ward-Prowse for that final ball rather than Tadic though so probably a decent test for him.

    I'm sticking to my 1-0 to Saints prediction! I've grown my fingernails in anticipation. Of course Yoshida to score!

    I can this being a tough midfield battle with little time or space. The winner will be the who takes one of the limited opportunities that present themselves...1-0 either way but very tight and not pretty.

    I wonder why Tadic is on the bench?

    Change of style. Change of formation. Being rested for Liverpool? Who knows, but I suspect it's a combination of all 3.

    Agree and I do feel that Yaya, for me, is probably the main threat today from City. The sort of game he thrives in - he and Victor will have a 'right tussle'. At least we have a lot of pace for a potential counter attack.

    If it means that we have a fresh Tadic for Wednesday (in addition to a fresh Pelle and a fresh Clasie), then I'm all for it - regardless of the reason behind it. For me, the Liverpool game is comfortably the more important game for us this week.

    At least if we lose we have a predetermined scapegoat.

    It's on Setanta, so there should be plenty of streams.

    Interesting team. To me it looks like we're setting up the same as Chelsea away last year.
