Your Starting 11.....

Postby bowltorious on Thu May 17, 2018 9:11 pm

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland, Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope.

Defenders / wing-backs: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Gary Cahill, Fabian Delph, Phil Jones, Harry Maguire, Danny Rose, John Stones, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker, Ashley Young.

Midfielders: Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Forwards: Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling, Jamie Vardy, Danny Welbeck.

I personally think our squad is so bad compared to the top teams but from the ones above pick your starting 11.

--------------------Butland
--------------Jones-------Maguire
Walker-----------Dier--------------Rose
-----------Henderson----Alli
----------Sterling--------Vardy
--------------------Kane

Flexible formation for whether defending or attacking. 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 or 4-4-2 diamond.

I think it’s pretty nailed on we’ll play 5 at the back, so I’d go:

——————-Pickford
——Jones—-Stones—-Maguire
Walker——————————Young
——Henderson——-Dier
———-————-Ali
————-Sterling—-Kane

If we play that team, I'd have Kane drop off and put Vardy up top?

-------------Butland

----Jones---Stones---Maguire

-Walker--Dier---Alli---Young

---Sterling--Kane---Rashford

I'd rather see Bertrand at left back, but there you go. Unsure of whether to go for Rashford or Lindgard, who I like a lot, I'd see how they both go in the friendlies. I've adapted the formation to try and allow for a bit more creativity in the middle- I think we'll really struggle if we go for Dier and Henderson in the middle.

I wouldn't mind trying Walker in the three and putting Alexander-Arnold at right wing back, he's impressed me a lot.

I assume this is what we would like to start not a prediction. With that in mind:

-------------------------Pope---------------------------
------Walker ------- Stones ------- Maguire------
Alexander-Arnold--------------------------- Rose
---------------- Dier--------- Loftus-Cheek---------
------------------------- Alli----------------------------
--------------- Sterling ----- Kane------------------

Well it seems to be the consensus that Gareth is going to go 3 a the back. Based on that, given the tools available:

----------------------Butland---------------------

----------Stones---Jones---Cahill-----------

Walker---------------------------------------Rose

---------------Dier-------Henderson-----------

--------Alli------------------------------Sterling---

-------------------------Kane----------------------

Perhaps with the option of dropping Alli into midfield and playing Rashford wide right. Personally I'd be going 4-2-3-1.
