So a bit of a mixed lineup with only 1 game to go but it matters.  I can’t believe the front 2 will be separated and apart from the FBs which should be £4.5m Taylor and Lowton then there is little else of interest.  There’s not even a £4.5m mid believe it or not.

Wood keeps up his form which was better than Barnes towards the end of the season

Here’s a match report and a you tube video

Palace 2 Wimbledon 2

Couldn’t find a lineup for this believe it or not but that’s more a comment on the lineup itself.  The Palace goals for example were scored by someone called Brandon Perrick.

The match was notable for Sakho getting 60 minutes which I believe will be the end of Kelly for GW1.  I expect Dann to be ahead of Kelly.  I guess it’s conceivable he could play RB but I would expect Ward to do that.




Kristiansund 0 Man Utd 1 

Goal:  Mata pen

Lineup and 90 mins ratings

Starting XI: De Gea (6); Wan-Bissaka (6), Jones (6), Lindelof (6), Shaw (7); Matic (4), McTominay (8*); James (6), Lingard (6), Martial (7); Rashford (7).

Substitutes: Romero (6), Dalot (6), Tuanzebe (6), Rojo (5), Young (5), Pereira (6), Fred (6), Mata (7), Pogba (7), Chong (6), Greenwood (7).

So quite easily a starting 11 except for Pogba.  Obviously there’s still transfer activity in the shape of Maguire and Dybala.  I suspect Dybala would be a number 10.

Sofa score can sometimes be inaccurate but it was impossible to verify whether it was Martial or Rashford as a CF.  A disappointing score line that’s for sure even if the game was attack v defence.

Here’s the 90 mins report and video highlights

Hibernian 1 Newcastle 3

Goals;  Joelinton, SLongstaff, Lascelles

Newcastle United: Karl Darlow; Javier Manquillo (Jamie Sterry 77), Fabian Schär (Federico Fernández 77), Jamaal Lascelles (c), Paul Dummett (Ciaran Clark 71), Matt Ritchie (Rolando Aarons 11); Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey (Matty Longstaff 77), Sean Longstaff (Ki Sung-yueng 60); Miguel Almirón (Jacob Murphy 69); Joelinton (Yoshinori Muto 69)

Sofa score seemed to have got Manquillo and Dummett in the wrong positions.

A full strength lineup I would suggest and 1 that gives some hope to £6.0m mid Almiron.  £4.5m Hayden again lineups up as a safe CDM.

£6.0m Joelinton was praised in the attached match report.

Norwich 1 Atalanta 4

Goal;  Cantwell

Norwich City (4-2-3-1): Fahrmann; Byram (Aarons 76), Godfrey, Klose, Lewis (Heise 83); Leitner (Vrancic 76), Trybull (McLean 63); Cantwell (Roberts 63), Buendia (Idah 83), Hernandez (Srbeny 66); Pukki (Drmic 63). Subs (not used): Krul, Stiepermann.

So a pretty mixed lineup.  Godfrey came in for £4.0m def Hanley who tweaked a groin.  Whether that means he’s in or out is hard to tell.

It was a promising performance by £4.5m Mid Cantwell but whether he will start is a big question give the other attacking mids available.
