So 4-5-1 dogs of war line-up, aimed at keeping a game tight and trying to nick a winner. What team are we looking at?
Holgate Jagielka Keane Baines
Lennon Gana Schneiderlin Mirallas
It's an experienced starting line up, real lack of youth in there though. Positional discipline wise, Rooney really has to stay up top. Far and away he has more career goals to his name than anyone else in the squad, his main job has to be to score. Can't have him dropping deep. Sigurdsson in recent years has been a creativity master so we need him to be creating chances for Rooney. Logically that's our route to scoring
We need solid workrate and running from Lennon and Mirallas, Gana and Schneiderlin to protect that defence and Sigurdsson to get his set piece delivery spot on
