I'd probably pick Coleman at RB since Holgate's had a few noticeable stinkers there recently. Not sure it makes a big difference either way though.
James can pop up wherever he likes, that midfield and the two other forwards put the work in to cover for his fluid positioning.
Those are definitely the first choice midfield and attacking trios. Good balance plus there are so many permutations of how you can change it up depending on how the match goes.

This is something we've seen before from Ancelotti that I don't really recall from any previous manager (lthough my memory is dogshit tbf) - different formations during a game with the same players. And not just a "with the ball Vs without the ball" set-up - I mean switching it up a bit and reacting to get us on the ball more, or to cut out threats.
Like you say, these are deffo our 1st choice midfield and attack. If we can settle into this as we're not having games every 5 mins, then I think Carlo will feel he has the choice to really work this 1st XI and squad players to turn us into a side that can do what he asks of them during a game.
