If Reid can't start and there is any doubt about lasting 90 minutes, then this, repeat this. Put Burke
alongside Collins. Caveat being Noble as the designated DM with Kouyate and Song in front of him. Should be more than enough effective cover for our back four including Burke in a start.
We should have done this against Brom. Kouyate is more important for us and offers more for us overall in midfield than as a CB. We are basically safe in the league, playing against a lower half of the money league team. Perfect opportunity to blood a youngster from our famed Academy in the money league alongside a seasoned pro and lets see what he can do. James Tomkins got a start as did every other player in the team.
As for the forward three, Nolan, Sakho, Downing, Amalfitano, Jarvis, Cole, Lee, etc take your pick.
