With Dwight Gayle fit to play tomorrow we are going to say that Rafa will start both Dwight Gayle and Aleksandar Mitrovic together tomorrow against Cardiff City at home.
It may not happen but he has talked in his press conference about the possibility of them playing together and with both in top goal-scoring form – why not give them both a start tomorrow?
Of course Rafa also has Mo Diame and Ayoze Perez, who will be keen to start in that number 10 role tomorrow.
Could these two pals both start tomorrow?
Here’s the side we think (guess) Rafa could start tomorrow:
Yedlin Lascelles (c) Clark Dummett
Atsu Gayle Gouffran
DeAndre Yedlin is fit and we have in at right back for Anita because of his attacking prowess and it seems we will be trying to break down Cardiff City tomorrow.
Christian Atsu is expected to come in for the suspended Matt Ritchie on the right wing and Frenchman Yoan Gouffran, who is attracting interest from Lille in the upcoming January transfer window will be on the left wing.
We cannot see either Jesus Gamez or Achraf Lazaar starting in either of the two full-back spots tomorrow, but they are both available and were on the bench last Saturday.
They will also have had a full week’s training this week to impress Rafa and they need to get some playing time soon.
What would your team be for tomorrow?
