Any chance of getting a poll? @Damien

Whoever it will be is unlikely to play 1 minute unless there are multiple injuries/suspensions.

On that basis I'd pick White, as he could fill in a few positions in an emergency, and he's young enough it might still be a valuable learning experience for him even just sitting on the bench.

Harsh on JWP who has played a fair bit and is probably more 'ready', but Phillips, Rice, Henderson, Bellingham ahead of him, plus possibly we could play just one DM on occasion.

I'm not sure about Ward Prowse; you can't just bring him on for freekicks and corners. I would go White or Godfrey.

I went for Ward Prowse, taking away his set pieces which are up there with the best in the Premier League, I don't think his all round game is up to much but we're rather light in midfield.

From what I remember of the make-up of the squad that was announced, JWP would seem to make sense.

JWP has pretty much booked his space in the squad with that performance.

JWP - shocked no big club hasn’t signed him already

Ward-Prowse should have been picked anyway.

White is unlucky, would have picked him too.

I've gone JWP, but I would also bring White and Godfrey in place of Mings and Coady because the latter two are useless.

JWP, he brings something the others don't (set piece deliveries) and he plays in CM where we are short of options.

What can Lingard do that Grealish and Mount cannot? How many AMC/AMLs do we need?
