    Well, here we go. I'll risk my impeccable match day record for this one, since no one else dares to.

    Defending a 2-0 lead, which should have been much more since we dominated the first leg. Will it come back to bite us in the arse?

    Probable line-up:

    Özil Ramsey
    Kolasinac Xhaka Torreira AMN
    Monreal Koscielny Sokratis

    Thought our team management vs Watford was great as we have some key players rested. Worried if Kos will start because of his fitness but I'd assume he will and then rest vs Palace.

    If it's the same back four we saw at home I'd be confident.

    I think Kos is more likely to be rested in this one because Sokratis still has one game left on his ban so he’ll be unavailable against Palace.

    We should at least draw with that team. Our failed chances in the first leg, and not to mention the chances we squandered last night, make me feel a little unsettled going into this match.

    I like the look of that side and although it’d be better to have Leno in goal that isn’t going to happen.

    The positive I take from that is that they beat a good team with Aubameyang and Lacazette both having poor games. There's no way they'll both struggle like that in the same game, pretty confident one of them can nick the away goal that will decide this.

    Away to Napoli is one of the toughest fixtures going.

    I hope Emery doesn’t go all out defensive, one goal for us here and it’s tie over.

    Can't make the same mistakes Atletico did vs Juve. We have to attack a bit at least and not just try to defend our lead.

    After yesterday i’m not sure I want Ramsey behind the strikers. Lose Xhaka, play Özil to retain the ball more and play Ramsey with torreira in a disciplined role in centre midfield. To me he has proven that he can do that now. And you should know that Koscielny is the central one in a defensive three because of his ability to play the ball out from the back to both sides.

    3-1, late goal from Mustafi on a corner, we go through and forum will be silent and confused for days.

    As I posted in first leg, I really hope we don't rue all those missed chances at the Emirates.

    I am manager, we go all out attack until we score an early 3rd goal then I'll be pretty defensive hahaha.

    Wanted to catch Napoli out by shifting him to the side. They won't know what hit them.

    It was an honest mistake.

    We're winning this and going through. I've sacrificed a ticket to the Palace game in the hope of getting one for the home leg of the semi final. Chickens well and truly counted and hatched here.

    If we lose by a 3 goal margin we don’t deserve to go through, regardless of missed chances.

    Two days away and I’m nervous AF. I’ll need a lot of beer for this one. Fortunately I’m off work on Friday.

    Just. Win. Please.

    A goal will be enough for us to qualify Napoli will leave space for us to counter so up to us to be clinical
