Assombalonga dropped, interesting

 

I think he just being managed. He played 3 games in 7 days as a lone striker. Whilst Akpom had a fortnight on the bench given his virus so makes sense. Hopefully after break both can start.

Basically the same team that started against Blackburn. Got a slight concern regarding the midfield, potentially having only Howson screening the defence could be an issue. Hope I'm wrong though.

I don't think Britt was particularly bad against Blackburn, but with only 2 strikers available I think this is potentially a change more to share the workload.

So at this point we can assume Warnock is just not fancying Roberts rather than it being fitness related? And is Morsy injured...?

Midfield looks lightweight without Morsy and Savile, I think we'll be under a lot of pressure today.

Howson has been the only one screening the defence even with Morsy & Sav in. The problem will be further ahead where we'll miss Morsy and Savilles tenacity further up the pitch.

Morsy has a slight hammy problem apparently. Warnock apparently retracted his statement of it being a tactical sub vs Forest and said it was a hammy.

Ah fair. Shame, he offers a lot. 

Heard anything about Roberts? Weird he's being barely played.

True, Howson is the one that tends to drop with Saville and Morsy pressing higher up. As a unit I don't think Wing, Tav and Howson will offer that same solidity, but could potentially offer the same in terms of actually pressing (but potentially less effective pressing).

He did this with Roberts at the end of last season preferring both tav, coulson and spence in that advanced wide position ahead of him.. I dont think he likes his style of play

I just read this as Britt being rested/rotated.

Can someone please tell me what Coulson brings? I thought he was anonymous against Blackburn.

I don't think we'd have brought Roberts back if he didn't like his style of play. I also don't think Roberts would have dropped down to the Championship to a team who weren't actually keen on his skills. I can only think it's a fitness issue which, to be fair, wouldn't exactly be surprising. He needs to start bringing him onto the pitch if he wants that to improve though.

Is it true Saville has had a family emergency and that's why he isn't in the squad or is he injured?

He linked up well down the left side with Bola. I just wish he was linking up via left back or left wing-back with someone else, like a Bolasie, as I just don't think he's an out and out attacker. He's got to take the game time he can get though with Bola developing into a first choice player.
