From what I can tell, Holgate is a better defender but Kenny is better going forward. Although Holgate has done well, I'd like to see Kenny at home to Bournemouth. At least to start.
Difficult one to pick up front but will justify thusly:
DCL has earned himself a starting place for this.
I don't want to play our star/record signing out of position so Sigurdsson gets the much-coveted 10 spot.
Rooney is our most consistent and dangerous player so he needs to be on the pitch.
I am convinced Sandro will start to shine more and more the more time he has on the pitch.
Sandro and Rooney switched flanks quite effectively in pre-season and I would like to see us try more of this.
If there is any chance of anyone in the current squad getting an understanding with Baines on the left and getting him to play in that way we love again - I think it's Sandro.
If all's well by 60 mins - keep it going to 75 mins.
If we need more out of the game - change at 60 mins to:
And hope to give Rooney a rest near the end if we get it in the bag.
