Depends on the relative fixtures doesn't it. Next round you tip the balance a bit more evenly so we have a slightly stronger squad for the League Cup match against Chelsea should we get through. I doubt it's possible to be full strength for both but we can certainly put two teams out that are more than capable of winning both games now which is good. Just noticed from my initial list i've forgotten Aurier and technically even Rose can still play for us.Agree in general.
If & when we play Chelsea, we cant afford to play young players or B team - we got to go for them with our best XI. At same time, got to travel with same squad for final qualifying.
Now we have Bale for example we can split up Son and Kane for each of those future games and i'd for sure make GLC features v Chelsea. Possibly you have a situation where Ndombele plays on the bench in both where he could give 30 mins in each. There's a lot of options thankfully.
