The season is just a couple of weeks away and with Peter Crouch looking to be one of our final signings for the summer (bar possibly a centre back) and dreams of Huntelaar remaining just that, dreams, who would you start against Liverpool on the 16th August?
In the current predicament my starting eleven would be the following: standard 4-4-2
GK-Gomes: No need to explain why, showed brilliant character to turn around his season
LB-Ekotto: Grabbed his chance in the first team with two hands when given, and we can win games when he plays.
CB's- Chimbonda and Corluka: A big talking point but if Chimbonda can reincarnate the formed he showed a few seasons back I think we should give him a go, I mean it is for only one game, isn't it?
RB- Hutton: Still unsure of Naughton and throwing him in the deep end against a team fighting for the league might be pushing him a bit at this stage of the season
LW- Keane: It may seem strange but he usually drops deep and I believe he could do a job out on the left. He works well as a playmaker.
CM's- Modric and Palacios: Unquestionable, both had good seasons last year
RM- Lennon: Need I explain?
ST's- Defoe and Crouch: I thoroughly hope this works and they can rekindle the partnership they had at Pompey. I will put my faith in Crouch.
Who would be your starting XI against Liverpool?
