@agbnufc Dell – “Perez is surely scoring today.”

@Kevin_Nichol – “I don’t mind that starting line up at all. We haven’t been creating enough so we’ve put in an extra attacker. Same formation as Leicester. Fair play for trying something different.”

@BennieBarricdes – “Don't mind the 4-4-2 idea. At least we're trying something different tactically.”
