    Not statistically, although I get that doesn't tell the whole story.

    This article in January this year has Ajer as winning more 'aerial duels' than any centre back in the league (80%)

    Definitely over Lustig at RB, if we end up playing a 4-man back line. Rodgers wants full backs up the pitch, and with Lustig, that is just hazardous.

    Not surprsing for me, they tend to try and launch the ball at Ajers side rather than Boyata’s.

    Look at it in the other box when wemre aiming for them, Boyata’s a danger, Ajer is not (although I struggle to understand why not there)

    It’ll be 3 at the back so it would be at Forrest’s expense, so no.

    Ajer can win duels, but he, like Šimunović and Hendry, is bad at heading the ball. Boyata and I suppose Lustig are the only ones who know how to head the ball. This is why we struggle with set pieces even when Griffiths is on the pitch.

    I don't think we'll qualify tonight. They're favourites after the score last week.

    I'd be happily surprised though! Surely we can't have three bad results on the trot?

    We'll need a big performance to get anything from this game.

    Time for this group to step up tonight, will need everyone to be right up for it to get through. I'm not confident, just hopeful we'll pull it off.

    MON THE * HOOPS!!

    I can't decide whether I want Lustig or Rogic to start. Probably Rogic.

    Gordon;
    Jozo Hendry Tierney;
    Forrest McGregor;
    Brown Ntcham Rogic;
    Edouard Griffiths

    Tierney as a LWB, McGregor in for Rogic and Lustig in at the back is another option I'd imagine

    We are going to do this tonight.

    We know we need to score so we will go out and play our normal game, overwhelm them early bells, get the first goal then they will fall apart.

    We will be three up before we lose a * defensive * up goal in the last 10 minutes.

    It's warranted but no looking forward to Sutton's moaning and Currie stirring shortly..

    Might even pass the build up and stay positive..
