David Moyes has a fascinating selection decision to make once we head into the game against Manchester City at the end of the international break.
The new man from Ajax was determined to ensure that before he joined the presence of Lucas Paqueta in the side would not unduly affect his own game time.
Steidten reportedly told the attacking midfielder that that wasn’t going to be a problem as they were wanted in the same team.
It’s now a case, with the club having so many midfielders available, as to how the manager is going to make that happen and it would perhaps appear that said Said Benrahma may be the one to suffer.
Despite some dazzling runs there has been little end product from him and that might seem the way for the manager to go in the key London Stadium game.
From all we have been told Kudus not only produces dazzling runs but goals – 18 last season so Said has serious competition maybe.
Here’s how I hope we line up for that key home match: Areola, Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson, Paqueta, Alvaraz, Kudus, Ward-Prowse, Bowen, Antonio.
