I hate Vardy, I think he didn't play last time out. He is odds on to score so we will have to get 2 at least. Calls for more from midfield (ooh did I say that out loud) 

 

He wont get the space like he did last season. Not so worried about Vardy but more Barnes down our right. He destroyed us last season.

If McGinn starts I will be fuming. Something is not right with him at the moment. I don't know if he needs a rest, a kick up the backside or a wake up call but he was awful against Brighton. I cant remember noticing a player give the ball away so many times.

That said however, you can make a decent case for any of that midfield being dropped and is noticeably our area of weakness.

We will probably turn up against Leicester, we tend to struggle against those we should be beating.

2-0 Villa win.

No Cash, I'd be tempted to go to 3 at the back but I doubt we will.

---------------------  Martinez -----------------------

-------- Konsa ---- Mings --- Hause ----------

Trezeguet --- Luiz --- McGinn --- Targett

-------------- Sanson --- Grealish ---------------

----------------------- Watkins -----------------------

 

I think Elmo will struggle if he plays against this lot but he's surprised me before.

I think Elmo will struggle less than Hause, who is out injured until next month.

Think Hause is injured.

I'd still play this shape if we can find a CB either Engels or even Taylor honestly. I'd love to try this formation. Obviously requires some training we haven't really had time for but Tuchel dropped it immediately in at Chelsea.

Could even do Targett at CB but we'd lose a lot from him in the wide left role, maybe stick Trez or McGinn out there?

If we line-up 4231, I think they'll thump us. They change shape all the time to expose opponents and our selection this year has been very predictable.

This is what I'd put out:

                     Emi

Elmo   Konsa   Mings   Targett

           Nakamba   Luiz

Trez          Sanson          Grealish 

                 Watkins

What I expect to see:

                     Emi

Elmo   Konsa   Mings   Targett

           McGinn   Luiz

Traore         Barkley        Grealish 

                 Watkins

And if we start with that team, I expect a tonking: 5-0

With my team, I still think we will lose, but I think it'll be a better performance and lower scoreline.
