I have really high hopes for Lo Celso. Hope we shines in this game.

I don't think the team will be as young as that. You don't want them getting slaughtered. That doesn't do anyone good.
I'd play the Under-11's girls team!Play the stiffs
Not EriksenDifficult to pick the team. None of the injured players should play even if recovered. Some not getting enough mins must play, Eriksen, Lo celso, Rose, Foyth, Sess and Skipp. After that it depends on how damaging a thrashing will be as the first team lost 7-2. Not sure what sort of team BM will put out and how good the reserves are even if picked. Could end up embarrassing as when we have played a completely changed team not used to playing together in cup games against weak opposition it has not gone well and BM are not weak opposition.
Sometimes you have to accept a writeoff, there are lots of others deserving time and he has demonstrated time and time again he couldn’t give a fuck, so don’t let him impede those who are trying to impressWhy not let him earn his money and allows a starter yesterday to rest.
Foyth should start in place of Davinson
Could be an interesting team selection. I would hope Japhet Tanganga is also involved - he is out of contract at the end of this season, and unless involved (assuming not injured) its very possible he's off in January or the summer, which would be a shame as he was a revelation in the 4 pre-season matches playing at CB and RCB against some decent strikers.
Mourhino watched the last u23 match so quite possible that one or two of those will be involved - Jamie Bowden (CM) scored a hattrick so might be the obvious one to be involved, probably from the bench. Harvey White (CM) not really involved in that match but might well be involved on the bench. Cirkin (LB) name checked by Mourhino a week ago and said he'd be joining first team training, but might be too early for him, so maybe 19th man ?
Probably likely a few 'fringe' or infrequent (in Jose's first 4 matches) starters will also have a chance to show what they can do.....step forward Mr Lo Celso ? But I hope the team also involves a few of the more experienced players to give a framework to slot some of the less frequent starters into.
GazzanigaIf Tanganga doesn't start because he's in a contractual standoff with the club, expect Foyth to start.
Walker-Peters, Sanchez, Tanganga, Sessegnon
Moura, Eriksen, Lo Celso
Subs to include : Whiteman or Austin, Foyth, Bowden, White ?
