@Brandon7Yates Eddie has to take this chance. Bag yourself am hattrick and staple your name to the starting 11. He will play every game from her till the end of the season if he proves himself. #lufc

@morti59 With a big game as well Wednesday this is a bold move to give Paddy a rest. Hope Eddie can do the biz today #LUFC

@Bazzbawls Shame about Bamford not involved at all but lets see what Eddie can do from the start and great to see Roberts back on the bench. Hope we don't end up chasing the game though because other than Roberts we really have no game changers on their. #lufc

@deancore bamford had knee trouble in the last game didn’t he? makes sense. big game for eddie now
