In terms of the starting line up, I'd say the weakest three are Konsa, Hourihane and Trezeguet - but they can all do a job.

The bench is weak though.

For me Guilbert is a stronger right back than Elmohamady and a stronger left back than Taylor - it seems certain that something is going on behind the scenes with him.

Yes has Guilbert done an Engels? If he's not injured then it's odd he's not on the bench.

Maybe won’t have Martínez... but that’s a fair guess I think. Could even have a wide forward by then too (Rashica?).

Hourihane? Completely the wrong game for him he just won’t get involved in a battle. He’s only good against footballing sides. Team selection and bench worry me again. Could be a long season.

I'd argue that hourihane isnt good against anyone but the problem is who else is there.

Absolutely ridiculous decision to cut him out. He's clearly good enough.

Numbers-wise we're short in the middle - we play with three and have McGinn, Hourihane and Luiz with only Nakamba, Lansbury and Ramsey to back them up. I really think we need another one - even if we bring Grealish into the middle.

For today, the blend isn't too bad - if we can get Hourihane on the ball he has the range of passing and dead ball ability to give us something.

McGinn and Luiz are more than feisty enough so I don't think that's too much of an issue. In any case he's there to give us that extra bit of creativity.

Neil Taylor has done well to get to a 2020/21 Premier League season in a matchday squad. We really do need quite a few signings still. No Samatta means we’ll definitely be getting another forward in. Rashica hopefully 

Rashica's not a forward though?
