It'll be interesting to see who drops off that bench when Grealish, Tuanzebe and Kodjia are fit.

 

Whelan, Davis, and... Elphick (assuming Hause on the bench with Axel starting)?

I'd say that's just about the best team we could put out considering.

pretty disappointing that Huase didnt get a start tbh.

No team should start with TWO central defenders under 6ft imo, madness. (if it can be avoided)

No Kodjia, anywhere

I hope the boys can find the right intensity, on and off the ball, today. Without Jack’s ability to dictate tempo and work the ball around the box, we need to create chances and to pin them back by winning the ball high up in favourable positions. We need to catch them off balance as often as possible. They’ll probably look to counter that by trying to play behind our back four as early as possible, so I’m hoping we can have an afternoon relatively free from individual errors and lapses of concentration at the back. Having Elmo and Hutton out of the side should help with that.

Elphick is clearly 6ft. Anyway, it’s not your height, it’s how you use it.

edit; not saying that Chester and Elphick do, just that too much a big deal is made of comparatively short defenders.

how fit is Hause? I thought he had been injured before he signed. Also he hasn’t played that often in recent months so may be rusty add to that playing with new teammates after 2 or three sessions and throwing him straight be too risky

Wow a RB and a LB playing in their proper positions.

What a rarity

In principle I agree with you.

But, my eyes tell me all season we have been out muscled and freak out to long or high balls, our back line is too short and light weight.

Hause will come on at some point I'd think

A centre half on the bench?  What wizardry is this??    Like the side and like the bench. 

Is there a mystery with Kodjia though????

It's a pretty balanced team. Best we can put out at the moment in my opinion. 

We need to be at this from the first min. Wigan aren't a bad team. They are on a bad run at the moment.

He's injured, probably has just been given leave to visit family.
