2020/21 Mason Holgate

Saint Domingo

Player Valuation: £70m
Hope we get to see him, Keane and Godfrey in a back 3 just to see if it works. Think it would be a complete back 3 if they get use to system. Keane is great in the air, Holgate can bring the ball out and be the more aggressive one and Godfrey has pace to burn but if Carlo does stick with a back 3 we may see a few bedding in performances like the 2nd half v Fulham which wont be pretty but could be worth it.

I can see why we might stick with it. We don’t have a right back who can defend and attack like Digne, we don’t have a centreback pairing he trusts, we don’t have a player to hold down the third midfield spot alongside Doucoure and Allan, plus James drifting infield leaves us unbalanced. The back three with wingbacks solves all of these problems but against Fulham we retreated far too easily into a back 5 and left a massive space in front that left Doucoure and Allan chasing shadows until Davies came on. Hopefully we can work on it this week as the system allows us to have James centrally, Richarlison up top with DCL, and gets a tune out of Iwobi.

What about Holgate at right back? And a more defensive third midfielder with Allan/Douc probably Davies until Gbamin is match fit?433

Definitely getting back his fitness and sharpness. So much more organised at the back with real defenders across the back.
Given more game time and when Seamus is back can move back into the middle at his best hopefully
