3 up front won't work if nobody passes the ball to them. only 2 in midfield didn't work before that's why we changed from 5-2-3 to 5-3-2. We will be outnumbered in midfield with the defenders resorting to pumping high ball forward to Zohore.

Kind of goes against the grain with GR’s preference to play 5-3-2. This team looks like 5-2-3 unless he drops Jed or Bennett into a midfield role and plats Ken and Bennett upfront. But....what do I know?

I can see Bennett playing third midfielder at the tip of a three.

Or, more likely, a four man midfield with Evans and Mitchell holding and Bennett and Jed sharing duties ahead of them and being used to support Zahore on the counter.
