I think tradu's lineup will be the one Mou goes for. Hopefully we'll be able to keep the good run going with nothing suggesting otherwise.
Tactically it should actually be slightly easier for us to prepare for this game, since United won't come to the Bridge like the small teams in the league and park the buss. Although it'd probably be better for them to come look for a draw but they can't because 'they're United' and have to try to play. That's good for us because we're a lot better than them at that
... That's why I think we're going to see less of the ball than normally at home but a lot more quick attacking into spaces - something that guys like Hazard and Willian love. Breaking down teams that defend deep with everything they've got has been tricky for us but when our AMs get to run at defenders we should be well off.
The only thing we've got to really be concerned about is the horrific starts and easy mistakes we tend to make early on in games (Terry against Hull, twice). Can't really afford to give them an easy lead.
I find the the mistakes the players commit are due to a lack of concentration and/or intensity. It's all a result of players not taking the opposition seriously. Thinking they will win simply because they are more talented on paper. It took a scoreline of 0-0 at halftime against Hull for the players to realize it wasn't going to be a cakewalk to get the win.
Although Mourinho is responsible for motivating the team and getting them prepared, I don't think he can be blamed for this: he is a proven motivator at all the clubs he's been! This comes down to players' professionalism in my opinion. I keep reading news articles on a couple of players not taking training seriously (Hazard (although he is changing apparently), Cole and De Bruyne most notably). Now, I don't know how true these reports are but apparently, even Mourinho himself was attributed quotes on this subject in the news...
Look at teams like Bayern, Barcelona, Dortmund, Arsenal (before Fabregas' departure), Man United (before Fergie's retirement) and even Man City this year: Those teams play the same regardless who the opposition is/was. they are just as intense in an exhibition game against some Middle Eastern or African team! That's the greatest sign of respect to opponents and proof of professionalism. As we have a very young team, although very talented, they do not have the maturity of the above-mentioned teams (except Arsenal who had a young team at the time but had a philosophy of playing which in a way prevented them from playing any different). This will come in time but the sooner the better!
And you can tell it's down to the players as we are the only team not to have been embarrassed by another team currently sitting in the top 8 (we dominated both losses against Newcastle and Everton). Bayern didn't embarrass us in the super cup unlike Athletico last year when we thought we deserved to win just because "we better than them" or losing the club world cup. This proves that players understand the implications of matches and are struggling to show up to play against team that requires more motivation to be excited to play against...Perhaps it's the reason I look more forward to clashes against tougher competitions (Schalke, City, Bayern, etc.) than weaker ones (Steaua, Sunderland, Crystal, Hull, etc.).
