Over on the forum we’ve been discussing the team against Liverpool…
Subs: Betts, MLM, Schurrle, Ayite, Vietto, Anguissa
I know that many would have both Vietto and Schurrle in their starting 11 however I’m not convinced that either provide enough, Vietto doesn’t want to shoot? and Schurrle needs 20+ chances and I think that they don’t help the overall shape of the team.
The team has been very unbalanced recently as we have a Championship right back, and Sess doing a great job at LB when ideally he would be further forward.
It is clear therefore we need a RB and LB in January and the tide will change as it will have a knock on effect throughout the team.
Until then, we need Christie/Ayite and MLM/Sess covering our flanks as damage control…
I don’t expect this team to create many chances and Mitro will likely be isolated. However the reality is that we don’t have the players or the form to get a result at Anfield. We have to cover our weaknesses in defence as above, and use Mitro holding up the ball and counter attacks to give us a chance.
