I think he'll want to fit in Wells on Friday and go for it, and rightly so.

So two up top.

What's behind that top two is anyones guess - but Eliasson will play.

 

 

Yep. And I just hope we don't see what we have so often when playing 442 this season. Less solid and don't pass the ball so well.

I expect Pato will be sacrificed. I hope Massengo keeps his place because of his energy in there. 

Unless of course Henriksen is ready to come in. Nagy is training now too. So many options all over the pitch.

5-3-2 or 5-3-1-1 Do you think Jon?

I hope we don't go with a back 5 personally. Think it limits us offensively and to play that formation we really need a good distributor of the ball in central defence.

I have never watched Benkovic so can't comment on his game, but on Saturday I felt one thing we missed was a defender to pass the ball from the back. I appreciate it was a typical 0-1 away win, but there were many occasions where particularly Ashley Williams would lose possession needlessly by playing unrealistic long balls which then puts pressure back on our defence.

Under Cotterill, the 5-3-2 worked really well because we had specialist wingbacks and Ayling playing centre half who could move the ball and carry it. With Baker/Kalas/Williams - none of them are particularly strong on the ball, and now Taylor Moore isn't here we don't have a more ball playing centre half. 

I hope we stick with 4 at the back as much as possible, hopefully with a front 2 of Wells and Diedhiou.

Benkovic appears to be a player that can carry/pass the the ball.

Not that I'm advocating three CBs.
