CM – Kalvin Phillips – Kalvin Phillips received plenty of abuse on Social Media but he was no worse than Bridcutt on Friday, in my opinion he was better. He put himself about and actually had a better completed passing percentage than Bridcutt. I think it’s between him and O’Kane to start in one central midfield position and I think Monk will stick with Phillips.
CM – Ronaldo Vieira – Vieira was due to start on Friday but for an illness. I reckon Monk will recall him for the Wolves game, we missed him and the physical side of his game against Newcastle. He’s had a brilliant first season in professional football. It’s hard to remember he’s only 18 at times, he’s going to become some player.
CAM – Pablo Hernandez – He was shocking on Friday but unlocked the Newcastle defence with one simple pass when we needed it. He suits the home games more so I think he’ll start, on his day he’s magical.
Finally the attack…
