Yeah I think we will too but would prefer to retain Oviedo and drop Hitz. Think we need Fellaini to control the game, not sure he will do that further up.
Like he didnt manage to against United?? Fellaini can help us control a game more from up front than he can in midfield. By being up top he can bring the ball down, get key players into the game in the final third more often. We will create more chances with him being up there as well.
I get that Hitz will tire and Ossie will have to do a lot of running, running he may not be able to do. And yes we could do with Felli there, but in my opinion we would be ludicrous to play him deeper. We need him up front as we need the ball to stick regularly if we are going to have enough of the ball upfield to win the game. If its Pienaar, Jelavic, Mirallas etc off Jelavic in the form he is in we wont hold much ball up like we didnt on Saturday, they will control more of the game and there will only be so much felli can do from deeper.
We need him forward and ideally we need Gibson fit so at least we can swap Hitz/Gibson whoever starts when they tire to freshen it up.
