We could have all predicted this team in all fairness, Tyler Roberts “has a knock” according to Thomas Christiansen and it leaves little room for change. I did expect to see Dallas in the side but Alioski and Roofe keep their place.
GK – Felix Wiedwald – The obvious choice now. Coming off the back of a very good game at Hull City.
RB – Gaetano Berardi – After moving into centre-back during the week he returns to right-back.
CB – On 9 yellow cards so will want to be careful but a ban is inevitable at some stage. Will have his hands full today.
CB – Matthew Pennington – Some game to be coming back into, looking at his first 90 minutes for a long time. Big chance.
LB – Laurens De Bock – Has looked decent in his first couple of games but will want to get his first win sooner rather than later.
CM – Ronaldo Vieira – Need him to have a big game today, off the back of two very poor performances for his standards.
CM – Adam Forshaw – Home debut today, needs to make sure we keep the ball.
RW – Gjanni Alioski – Keeps his place despite some very poor form. Very physcial game today.
CAM – Pablo Hernandez – Will captain the side, key player today. Needs to keep getting on the ball even if we are struggling.
LW – Kemar Roofe – Hasn’t scored since last year and will want to put that right.
ST – Pierre-Michel Lasogga – Worked hard against Hull and second half against Millwall we saw how good he can be.
