FA Cup 3rd round
Live on BT Sports 1
So it’s a break from the League, and time for domestic cup action. We haven’t played Preston in any competition since 1999, when we came from 2-0 down, to win 4-2, also in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.
Preston are having a solid season in the Championship, currently in 11th position. After the extraordinary night in Bournemouth, we really need to get back down to basics in this one. Defence seriously needs to tightening up for this one.
In terms of who we play is a tricky one. We seem to have occured several injuries in the last few days and not much option in terms of being able to rotate much. Will we see a return for Ozil?
I could see the likes of Perez and Oxlade starting, possiblity Holding as well. We need a mature, professional performance. I’m going for a 2-1 win.
