Ahhhhhhhh.....to go into next Sunday with no pressure is a great feeling. Should be a party atmosphere. I hope TS gives a few players a rest for the Cup final.

 

For Burnley I'd go with:

 

              Given

 

Lowton Senderos Vlaar Hutton

 

            Sanchez

 

Gil         Cole      Sinclair

 

 

Weimann          Gabby

Is it worth putting a strong team out to make up for today's performance and to get some confidence back? Burnley certainly won't roll over, as shown by their draw against Stoke

Not that it was an excuse but there was an element of fatigue in today's performance. I'd go for a weakened team, the final is more importsnt than trying to gain a couple more places in the league. Also, it'll be nice to see a few of the fringe players perhaps give Sherwood something to think about:

Guzan | Hutton Senderos Baker Cissokho | Sánchez Delph | Robinson Grealish Gil | Gabby

We don't want to go into the final having being thrashed by Southampton and failing to beat an already relegated Burnley. So for me this is a must win match, just to get things back on track and get some confidence back for the Arsenal game.

No benteke? I certainly want to see him for what will probably be the last time

I'm sorry but it really isn't a must-win game. All we need is a good performance and no injuries.

It's just that he is our MVP and the one we cannot afford to lose for the final. I'd rather not risk it.

You can also catch him the week after at Wembley!

To me, Benteke is a confidence player, and needs to be scoring to maintain that. Apart from him, I'd give most of the others a rest.

 

So maybe:

 

Guzan / Lowton / Baker / Vlaar / Hutton / Sanchez / Gil / Delph / Sinclair / Gabby / Benteke

 

Maybe give guys like Senderos / Clark / Wiemann a run off the bench...
