This will be a much tougher game than the Arsenal match. Schalke have some really good players, the likes of Kuranyi, Farfan, Rakitic and Altintop are all top players, Not forgeting the the Brazillian right back Rafinha who has great ability.
Jo was apparantly injured from playing in the reserves the other week but will be in squad. Hughes is sweating on Robinho and Zabaleta who both picked up knocks at Arsenal. But hopefully both will feature as we need them.
Vassell is likely to continue in his staring role in the ' worst player on the pitch' position.
This is a competition we really do have a chance in, this will be the hardest game in our group, hopefully we will raise our game, becasue when we are on form, we can beat anyone.
The confidence of beating Arsenal will hopefully kick start our season.
The Game is on FIVE, with coverage starting at 17:55.
