For how long he has been out, massive credit as he looked on the money from the start yesterday

It's such a shame any game time out of him is a bonus, as you cannot rely on him being fit

I can see a problem developing for Bilic, if starting Carroll means we have to shoehorn Hernandez out into a wide position. If both starting, they have to both play central imo.

I wouldn't start Carroll regularly. I would play Chichirito off Antonio to start, and bring Andy in as a sub.
Stinks but too many game minutes would mean back to the medical ward.

Would it be deemed stupid and ridiculous to just play Chic and Andy down the middle? 2 up top.

Whether you like carroll or not, there is no way you can play him, hernandez, lanzini and antonio in the same team, without Hernandez being wasted out wide, or Antonio wasted at RWB

For me, for most games Hernandez and Antonio should fill two of the front '3' with Lanzini behind. The other widish position in front 3 should be Ayew or Arnie

In a 352 with Lanzini behind would be lovely. In a 442 we'd get murdered!

Was frustrating that Chicha was 20 yards behind him everytime he won a header. Antonio was in-front but way too close. Hope that one is worked on in training.
