Unai Emery has made the bold decision to include Mesut Ozil for a key match for the first time in his tenure, with the big challenge of a revitalised Manchester United in front of us.
The Red Devils are in a rich vein of form since former striker Ole Gunnar Solksjaer came in to try and heal the wrongdoings of Jose Mourinho, and his side have gone unbeaten in the league so far, as well as overturning a 2 goal deficit in the Champions League this week. They will obviously be confident of some sort of result today, but Emery has shown he is not to be underestimated.
Emery has made the bold move to throw Ozil into the mix today, as well as appearing to field five defenders in the team (possibly with Kolasinac or Maitland-Niles playing a little more advanced than in a back five however.
United have also made the decision to throw Diego Dalot into the team as a winger (at least on paper), which has to be named as Ole’s first outlandish decision since joining the club.

Both teams look like they have goals in them, but which one will score more? Will United be blessed by their extra days rest or will we rain on their parade after their CL triumph? Obviously we are hoping for the latter…
