It’s always very difficult to know what Rafa’s starting line-up will be for every single game, but it may be even more difficult right now after Jonjo Shelvey has been suspended for five games.
Who will replace him is a good question and for this game tomorrow against the Owls, if Jack Colback is fit we think he will come in for Jonjo and partner the impressive young Isaac Hayden – an England U21 International – in central midfield.
But it looks like Jack may not make the game because his injured eye could still be troubling him and if that’s the case Rafa could switch Vurnon Anita to central midfield and the very capable DeAndre Yedlin could come in at right back.
Vurnon Anita – switched to central midfield?
Rafa could also bring in Cheick Tiote for a shock start, although if Jack is out we think Cheick will at least be on the bench.
Rafa will play a strong side tomorrow night to try to get all 3 points against Sheffield Wednesday.
Here’s the team we think he will start:
Yedlin Lascelles (c) Clark Dummett
Ritchie Diame Gouffran
What’s your team for tomorrow night?
