i would definitely bring in lescott for c c c cieran clarke and i think tim will too

hoping grealish and adama will be fit enough to play

still not sure if gestede is good enough ,,,,,but think tim will stick with him for now

i hope and think gill will start too

Guzan

Bacuna Richards Lescott Amavi

Sanchez Westwood

Gil Grealish Sinclair

Gabby

Dont think Traore will be fit to start the match, can see Lescott coming straight in and Gueye will probably miss out with injury. think Tim will put Gabby back in for some reason

Ive noticed nobody had put Veretout in the starting 11, what are peoples thoughts on him at the minute ?

I think he looked decent in pre-season but he looked slow in the league to me. He needs to be quicker and more composed on the ball.

As Stu said he needs to get a little sharper and get used to the quick tempo

they reckon now that sherwood might play 3 centre backs ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,richards ,,lescott and c c ciaran clarke

with amavi and bacuna not so good at defending ,,, but good at going forward as wing backs

this formation or system could really suit us

I hope not, I really hate 3 CB's. It always seems to be an accident waiting to happen with everybody waiting for someone else to be covering.

Some part of me is wondering was Sherwood playing Sanchez at the back to get him more used to defending so that when the full backs push up he falls back into a pseudo CB role to make up the numbers? A number of teams have played that way over the years and it might work. There was also talk of Illori playing in midfield and he should be able to play that role too.

Would become more of a 3-4-3 when attacking.

I like 5 at the back, it sounds really defensive but with bacuna and amarvi bombing it down the wings it can be quite an attacking formation, and leaving 3 CB at the back is good insurance

if we did do that, I'm not sure we would need Sanchez in the starting line up, opting for playmakers instead, something like this..

Guzan

Richards Lescott Clark

Bacuna Amarvi

Westwood Veretout

Traore/Grealish Sinclair

Gestede

With this sort of set up i think Gestede would be suited better up front with both Amarvi and Bacuna being more attacking, whipping balls into the box.
