"Against Southampton, three hours before the game, I didn’t know the team I was going to play. So nobody knew the team and ourselves, we didn’t know it. We were waiting to see who could and couldn’t play, and I think we’re going to be in a similar situation. If you asked me if the game was at 11 o’clock today, I would say Chris Smalling is not playing, Eric Bailly is not playing, Phil Jones is not playing. Of course, Lindelof is out of the question. But we have to wait. Valencia is not playing, Shaw is a doubt, Matteo Darmian is back, but I have to wait and maybe tomorrow we decide, like the last match, a couple of hours before the game.”
