Team for Rapid Vienna.
Very hard to predict the lineup for this one, mainly due to the fact that the performance and result at Old Trafford last week demonstrated that the squad maybe isn't as thin as most of us thought it was. Whether this gives Moyes more confidence to rotate his players more than he might have done, remains to be seen.

In goal, I get the impression that unless Fabianski gets injured, Areola's appearances will be limited to the League Cup then FA Cup.

In defense, I expect the promising partnership of Zouma and Diop to be given another go. Fredericks is injured so I expect Coufal to continue at RB, but wouldn't be surprised to see Johnson playing in his best position for once.

In midfield, I really think Soucek needs a rest - not sure if Moyes will see it that way. Maybe we'll see Kral in there, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's Noble.

Up front, it has to be Antonio, at least for the first hour, depending on how it's going. Behind him I expect Bowen to get a well-earned break, with starts for Vlasic, Lanzini and either Fornals or Benrahma.

Fabianski
Coufal Diop Zouma Cresswell
Rice Kral
Benrahma Lanzini Vlasic
Antonio

What I've seen of Johnson I like or find normal for a player at this stage of his career being asked to play out of position.

Good to see him starting today.

I’ll be good to see for the first time, Johnson actually play as an RB!

Antonio starts tonight, alongside Vlasic, Benrahma, Yarmalenko

Any Old
bugger I only saw the first two games not the Wednesday game. If he plays in the Honduras game that will rule him out of the Everton game unless they freeze him and ship him back.
Let's play him in both games then and hopefully he'll be to tired to find his passport.
Crazy to think of some of the England players geting in the squad now

Unfortunately for us Antonio's Jamaica have three world cup qualifiers in the space of just 6 days. If he plays all three then he could will back knackered - or worse, crocked.

I fucking hate these international breaks.

Re: Team for Rapid Vienna.
The thing is with Johnson, he can be brilliant one game and crap the next. At least we might be able to see him in his natural position tonight, and against limited opposition, so no excuses.

Oh dear,Johnson at RB.

He is shit and our third choice right back, but he should be ok there against such average opposition.

Johnson is one of the weak links in our squad, alongside Benhrama and Yarmolenko. We need upgrades on all three.

We need to top this group, then its straight to the round of 16 (rather than the 32) and the business end of this Cup.

We start resting too many players or taking games for granted etc, then banana skins will appear, take it seriously or not at all IMO.

This game then Brentford before a decent break, play our strongest team please......

Antonio RB if Vlad and Frederick's are out

Can't play doubtful players.

Re: Team for Rapid Vienna.
Coufal a doubt.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/58741636

Johnson in and Ashby on the bench.
No point in playing Coufal in this. Maybe a doubt for Saturday and the Internationals which will give him a 2 weeks rest.

COYI,

Well put.

Tomorrow evening cannot come soon enough.

Re: Team for Rapid Vienna.
I think Antonio will play a part, he missed both games against Man U so hasn't played as much as some of the players in the last couple of weeks

Re: Team for Rapid Vienna.
Don't like the thought of Kral at home. Sits deep. I want a midfield that fucks them.

Come On You Irons 6:25 Wed Sep 29
Re: Team for Rapid Vienna.
I'm getting quite pumped for this game now. First proper European game under the lights for years.

Areola

Coufal
Zouma
Diop
Masuaku

Rice
Kral

Fornals
Lanzini
Vlasic

Bowen

That would be my team assuming Fredericks is injured. Rest Fabianski, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Soucek and Antonio for this one.
